"Don't get high and makes promises or bets," Killer Mike told us last year when we asked him about Meow the Jewels, the cat-centric remix of Run the Jewels 2. Duly noted!

After El-P made a joke about remixing RTJ2 using only cat noises if someone bought a $40,000 deluxe edition of the album, fans rallied and raised the cash on Kickstarter. The campaign raised over $65,000, with the proceeds set to benefit "the families of those who have lost their lives to police brutality."

Back in January, El-P announced Meow the Jewels had secured a special guest: famous Internet feline Lil Bub, whose owner contributed a library of cat sounds to the remix. El-P tweeted:
