Run The Jewels' remix of their critically acclaimed "Run The Jewels 2" is the most anticipated (and probably only) hip-hop album to be entirely comprised of cat sounds in 2015. After successfully funding a fan-created Kickstarter last year for "Meow The Jewels," and then some -- the additional profit going to the families of Mike Brown and Eric Garner -- El-P and Killer Mike recruited a team of producers, which includes Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Just Blaze, Boots, Zola Jesus, Skywlkr, Dan the Automator, the Alchemist, Baauer, Prince Paul, Nick Hook and Solidified Sun.
Over the weekend, El-P began working on production for the album, sharing three clips of feline madness on Instagram, and asking the important question, "Oh my God, what am I doing with my life?"
And just when it seemed that the bar couldn't be set any higher, El-P announced via Twitter that Internet-famous cat Lil Bub would join the remix album's stocked roster, sharing a "library of sounds" with the duo.
