run the jewels are donating their album's proceeds directly to michael brown and eric garner's families
The boys followed through on their promise, making a remix album with only cat sounds.
Run The Jewels have just dropped a fresh remix album, to follow up to last year's Run the Jewels 2. As an incentive to pre-order the record, Killer Mike and El-P jovially offered to make the remixed album exclusively with cat noises for $40,000. Somebody called their bluff, creating an explosive Kickstarter which well exceeded the original $40,000. Run the Jewels didn't back down, so Meow the Jewels was born.
Meow the Jewels is being released for free. The $40,000 raised from the campaign will be directly donated to the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, who both lost their lives at the hands of police officers last year.
