Last year, Run the Jewels released a cat-rap charity album, Meow the Jewels (Mass Appeal Records), and now they have followed it up with the debut of a video for its lead single, "Meowpurrdy." The video is directed by cult video artist Cyriak and places viewers in a nightmare-ish cat-filled world. The video was released in conjunction with Adult Swim.
On the track, Killer Mike raps over El-P's produced rhythm of meows, purrs, and haunting hisses. It's the kind of track that only Run the Jewels could create. The duo has recently announced that they will be returning for a second year to play at Coachella and are playing at ESPN's X-Games later this week.
Killer Mike has been making waves over the last several months with his support for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. He has joined the junior senator from Vermont on both the web, where Mike interviewed the candidate in Atlanta, and on television last week in South Carolina, when Mike, Bernie, and a panel discussed the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Run the Jewels' third album, Run the Jewels 3, is due out on Mass Appeal and RED at some point this year. We can't wait to hear what they will be up to next.
