I’d sort of forgotten that Biz Markie gets all Meow Mix in the middle of Def Fresh Crew (at the 29:30 mark in the show), but it seems fortuitous as it lets me mention the ridiculousness of the Meow The Jewels project which blew past its kickstarter goal this week. As part of Run the Jewels‘ second album release, the group consisting of El-P and Killer Mike were offering special packages for those willing to spring a bit of extra cash for the album. These were meant to be joke packages, but someone decided to call their bluff, and they, being the awesome dudes they are, ran with it. All the money will go to the families of Mike Brown and Eric Garner.

For me, I saw it as an opportunity to possibly do something good in the stupidest way possible.

El-P, via Entertainment Weekly. That EW article also sports the brilliant headline, “El-P has one explanation for ‘Meow the Jewels’ album: ‘Marijuana’ “.

Oh man.

Anyways, back to last week’s show. Pretty decent selection of music, and a couple of maybe over-eager mixes. I’m loving the mellow vibes at the beginning of the show, but the hip hop middle and dance-y end is fun times too. Enjoy!
