*****
It's like a 75% full circle or something. The proceeds to 'Meow The Jewels' are going to victims of police brutality, and because of those funds, we get to hear them rap about police brutality over cat noises.

Anyway this is pretty powerful stuff. Mike & El play off their racial status to present two different perspectives of the same scenario. Mike of course plays the innocent victim who is singled out by dodgy police, who despite not being particularly intentially threatened, abuse their position to well, abuse his wife. While on the other hand, El details his mundane insignificance to the state of the world, closing with a tie in to the previous verse where he notes hearing the previously mentioned brutality, but is in no position to do anything, and ultimately it does not shift his lifestyle at all, tomorrow is just another day.

The surprise star on the song though is Boots, a surprisingly unknown name despite being a major contributor to one of the biggest albums of the last 12 months, "Beyoncé". His hook is simply chilling and adds a finishing layer to the track. He's also at hand with producing the track which is one of the finest on "Run The Jewels 2". The beat bounces along addictively (which is most effective when it fades back in after the chorus. Love what they do with the chorus too with distorted bass drops. Just can't get enough of this track.
*****
Another great track from 'Run The Jewels 2'.
