Are We Facing Another Mass Extinction Event?

This year's most ridiculous music project just got a huge boost toward fruition.

Meow the Jewels — a remix concept for Killer Mike and El-P's Run the Jewels that would feature all music sounds made by cats — has been floundering well below its goal of reaching $45,000 in crowdfunds.

But hip-hop producer Just Blaze recently entered the fray with a couple game-changing tweets:

El-P was, of course, feeling #blessed.

As you might expect, the rewards for pitching in on Meow the Jewels are ridiculous. Here's a sampling:

A $50 donation gets you...

  • A bag of "MTJ" catnip
  • An "awesome MTJ surprise" (think wristbands, bottle openers, etc.)
  • Three "Meow The Jewels" stickers
  • Digital "Meow The Jewels" copy
  • "Meow The Jewels" matchbook
  • "A hearty thumbs-up"
  • A "meow" tweet from @MeowTheJewels

Somehow, the promotion for Meow The Jewels has potentially superseded the buildup for Run The Jewels 2, which will be out Oct. 28. 

That album will feature Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la RochaBOOTSTravis Barker and Diane Coffee. A whole slew of tour dates are also out in the open.

Here's the official tracklist:

01. Jeopardy
02. Oh My Darling Don't Cry
03. Blockbuster Night Part 1
04. Close Your Eyes (And Count To F---) [Featuring Zack de la Rocha]
05. All My Life
06. Lie, Cheat, Steal
07. Early [Featuring BOOTS]
08. All Due Respect [Featuring Travis Barker]
09. Love Again (Akinyele Back)
10. Crown [Featuring Diane Coffee]
11. Angel Duster
