Killer Mike & El-P – Meow The Jewels: A Short Paw-cumentary

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Meow The Jewels, the cat-sound infused remix project from Run The Jewels, is easily one of the most unique undertakings in the history of Rap music. In a new ‘Paw-cumentary’ from Mass Appeal, the pair talk about the inception of the project as tongue-in-cheek RTJ2 deluxe package, the real world difference it ended up making and what that represents from a social perspective. Here’s a fun fact: This project that essentially started as a joke allowed Mike and El-P to make two donations of $20,000 each to the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and there’s nothing funny about that.
