Update: you can now watch the album's incredible trailer.

Original Story

You know that joke pre-order package Run the Jewels (aka El-P and Killer Mike) announced last month? You know the one... it involved a remix version of their new album RTJ2 featuring cat sounds. Remember? Meow the Jewels? Cool, well despite it being a joke, a fan decided to start a Kickstarter to raise funds to make it happen. Not only that, but the duo said that if it was funded, they'd make it happen. Hell, the profits were going to charity, so it was always a win-win.

As you can probably tell from the following tweet, and the headline, the project has reached its goal. A full 12 days ahead of completion too.

The project is set to feature Zola Jesus, Just Blaze, Baauer, Portishead's Geoff Barrow, Boots and many more. RTJ2 is scheduled for a release on October 27th, though you'll probably have to wait a bit longer for Meow the Jewels.

We're feline pretty good about this.
