Forget Snoop Dogg...

Gangster cats

Forget Snoop Dogg and Pitbull, the new dominant animal in the rap kingdom is the cat. The internet loves cats, the internet loves rap, the internet loves funding barmy projects en-mass just because it can. So bearing all this all in mind, a cat-rap album now exists and it's... actually pretty good.

US rap duo Run The Jewels have released a cat-inspired rap album called Meow The Jewels (sure.) after launching a Kickstarter campaign that amassed $66,000.

Frontmen Killer Mike and El-P have remixed their second album Run The Jewels 2 with cat meows, growls, mews and every over-fluffy grumble you can imagine.

All of the funds from the album will go to charity, and the people behind the record, which impressively includes the likes of Portishead and Massive Attack, aren't under any illusion that this might be a particularly "good" offering to the world of music.

El-P told Deadspin: "I would never even insult the world by saying [the album is] 'good,' but it's certainly the high-water mark for cat-sound records, I think."

Listen out for Close Your Eyes And Meow To Fluff and Lie, Cheat, Meow. Although there's lots of swearing, so maybe cover your moggy's ears if they're of a sensitive disposition.
