Oh shit, Andre Benjamin rapped new words into a microphone over a beat by Timothy Mosely. Chicago up-and-comer Tink will also appear on this new as yet untitled track that we have to assume will appear on Tim’s upcoming Opera Noir LP.

Killer Mike & El-P’s Meow The Jewels is Happening (Trailer)

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

When Killer Mike and El-P listed their new Run The Jewels 2 project for sale on their website, they jokingly(?) included a special $40,000 “Meow The Jewels” package for (presumably) fans of both RTJ and cats. For the relatively reasonable price of $40K, they claimed, they would remix the new LP using nothing but cat sounds. As in, the noises cats make, sampled and turned into Rap beats.

The internet, which notoriously has only trace amounts of chill, almost immediately turned the joke into a very real Kickstarter campaign. Meow The Jewels recently reached it’s $40,000 goal and as of this writing has exceeded it by over $14,000. So yeah, we’re getting a Killer Mike and El-P cat album.

Sure, it may sound ridiculous, but they’ve already enlisted the like of Just Blaze, Alchemist, Dan the Automator and Skywlkr to make production contributions. Watch the new trailer above and look out for the feline-free edition of RTJ2 to drop on October 27th.

Video: Jay Electronica & Jason Goldwatch – Into The Light (Film Trailer)

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Jason Goldwatch presents a trailer for an upcoming film from Jay Electronica documenting Jay’s trip to the Far East back in 2007.

Traveling across strange lands, we were invited to attend sacred ceremonies of sacrifice and parading celebrations of ancient descent. We trekked together towards the horizon and explored crowded monasteries, solitary mountain top temples, slums of filthy laughing children, and rivers running with blood and flower petals. I documented as Jay walked a river of burning human bodies. We crash landed a helicopter in the Himalayas, and he delivered rice and clean water to a school in a refugee tent city. The result was a collage of movements and emotion.
