To quote the Christian Bible (approximately): Ye know not the hour nor the day, when Killer Mike and El-P may choose to drop the world’s first “cat-rap” album on an unsuspecting Earth. At least, you didn’t until tonight, when the hip-hop duo, better known as Run The Jewels, did exactly that, unleashing their catnip-craving masterpiece Meow The Jewels upon the world.

The band’s unofficial album announcement said they’d have a formal press release to support the album available on Monday, but we’ll take a shot at one right now: This is Run The Jewels 2, remixed with a wide variety of cat sounds, and released for free on the internet pretty much on a dare. Do you need to know more? Go, download, spend your weekend indulging in what’s either one of the smartest pieces of idiocy or the dumbest expressions of genius that we’ve ever been privileged to hear.
