12 Other Classic Hip-Hop Albums That Should Get All-Cat Remixes

When hip-hop duo Run the Jewels announced a deluxe edition of their new album that would use “nothing but cat sounds for music,” it was supposed to be a joke. But after one month and more than $45,000 raised on Kickstarter, Meow the Jewels is really happening.

But why should the all-feline remixes end there? Meow the Jewels got us dreaming about other classic hip-hop albums that should get their own all-cat versions. After whittling down to our best purrposals, here are the ones—complete with new names and album art—we’d like to see happen.
