Hey Enclave community, now you can download Meow the Jewels. Really.
If you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, this is is: last year, Killer Mike and El-P, two hard as fuck rappers who came together to form the duo Run the Jewels, sent out a mass email to their fans announcing their latest record. As Run the Jewels’s lasted record was a free product available to anyone for free downloading, Killer Mike and El-P also mentioned various merchandising options that you could choose to purchase, vinyl, t-shirts, CDs, etc.
At the bottom of this email they also included wholly fictitious “bonus” packages that could be purchased for large sums of money ($20,000 and up). They were obvious jokes, like Killer Mike would come to your kid’s school and beat up a bully of his or her choice, and anyway, no one would have the kind of money to drop on one of them.
One of the bonus packages was Meow the Jewels, a cat-sounds-based remix of the entire Run the Jewels album. This one went for $50,000. Well, some enterprising Jewel Runner went and started a Kickstarter for this remix. It got a very, very, very strong response. Pretty soon Killer Mike and El-P got involved, using their social media and recruiting high profile rap producers to push the project along. And so, it got funded.
And, actually, it’s not that bad. Download it.
