Meow (Run) The Jewels!

The super talented hip-hop duo of Killer Mike and El-P are set to release their second collaborative studio album, Run the Jewels 2, on October 27. The pre-orders for the album began last month, and several interesting packages are available. For $25,000 The Show and Tell Package sends the emcees to your city to accompany your child on a day of school, including “personal bully protection for 24 hours”.

According to The Meow the Jewels Package, for $40,000 “Run The Jewels will re-record RTJ2 using nothing but cat sounds for music.” Much to the surprise of Killer Mike and El-P, a Kickstarter popped up to raise the funds for the package. The Kickstarter received much online attention, and various big name producers, such as Just Blaze, SKYWLKR, Baauer, Prince Paul, and Dan The Automator, offered to produce beats for the album if the funding goal was reached. With 11 days remaining for funding, over $55,000 has been raised, and Meow the Jewels is going to be a real album!

Check out the preview for Meow the Jewels, and their song from the actual Run the Jewels 2 album “Close Your Eyes and Count to F–k” below.

The Best Of Bob Marley And The Wailers New CD

Legend was issued originally in 1984, 3 years after Marley died from cancer. It quickly became the biggest-selling reggae album of all time, and it remains so to this day. Accordingly, the vast majority of the songs here have passed into the public consciousness so completely that you’ll be able to sing the chorus to them despite never having knowingly heard them before.71rqP13SVRL._SL1500_
