Producer and rapper El-P is officially committed to making a hip-hop album full of cat sounds.

He’s got himself to blame. In September El-P and Killer Mike announced several gimmick preorder packages for the second installment of their Run the Jewels series. One, Meow the Jewels, promised that the hip-hoppers would “re-record RTJ2 using nothing but cat sounds for music” if it could raise $40,000. Fans launched a Kickstarter campaign, and Wednesday it passed $48,000. So, yeah—the cat remix project is on.

The good news is that El-P won’t be pocketing the lump sum. All proceeds will benefit the families of Eric Garner and Mike Brown.

There are 12 days left to help support the project. Run the Jewels 2 is out Oct. 27. Let’s hope the cat remix project gets fast-tracked this quarter.
