Run the Jewels Preview ‘Meow the Jewels’ With Help From Lil Bub

El-P teased the start of the feline rework on Instagram

In case Meow the Jewels, the shot for shot remake of Run the Jewels 2 with cat noises, sounded too good to be true, we finally have our first taste of what the project may actually sound like thanks to a couple of Instagram videos from the El-P. The Brooklyn-based rapper/producer/general aesthete tweeted Friday night that he’d received a bank of sounds from our favorite feline celebrity Lil Bub, and shortly after he offered a few short previews of what the record might sound like. You can check out all three clips below, and for any that remain skeptical of the idea, hearing Bub mew the hook from “Jeopardy” should win you over.
