HBO releases Game of Thrones-themed mixtape, 'Catch the Throne,' featuring Big Boi, Common, Wale, Daddy Yankee and more [LISTEN]
As previously reported, HBO has commissioned a handful of artists to rap about Game of Thrones. The project, called Catch The Throne, features tracks from Big Boi, Common, Wale, Kilo Kush, Daddy Yankee and more. The purpose of the mixtape is to promote the fantasy series to an "urban" audience, a demographic that includes African-Americans and Latinos.
The ten tracks feature samples of music from the show as well as clips of dialogue. You'll hear gems like, "F**k the Lannisters and everybody ride with 'em / Jon Snow and the Night's Watch, finna slice some iron in 'em" from Big Boi and "I sit in think when I'm in my zone / This life is like a Game of Thrones" from Common.
