Never in history have cats been able to speak, let alone wax lyrical about feline existence, but the animated HBO show Animals on Friday showed how this could change, and did so with Harlem's own A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg. 

The show's latest episode, which aired Friday night, turned the two rappers into bodega-cats—the felines that scamper around New York City's ubiquitous delis—and had them spit some very real bars about the kitty-cat way of life. Watch it above. 

As you can probably gather, Animals is all about the varied lives of New York City's animal population. Ferg and Rocky make a pretty formidable feline posse, spitting verses about chomping on mice and hating on bigger, louder dogs. 

Animals features a glut of funny actors who also play animated critters: Tune into HBO on Fridays at 11:30 p.m. to catch Nick Kroll, Eric Andre, Jessica Chastain, and Marc Maron on the show.
