Yesterday we heard that the HBO series "Game of Thrones" is foraying into rap territory with a hip-hop mixtape compilation called Catch The Throne. Following the official announcement, we received the first offering, Big Boi's "Mother of Dragons" track. Today things continue with Wale's solo record "King Slayer", once again keeping in line with the general theme of the TV series.
Catch The Throne is being used as a promotional/marketing tool for the upcoming fourth season of the series, which debuts on April 6th. We should be receiving the full mixtape on March 11th. Stay tuned.
Do you think Catch The Throne will do the job of turning you onto "Game of Thrones" if you weren't already a fan?
Got my back to the wall, this isn't rap it's war
Took a sabbatical, now battle anybody who want it
Using my king not for words as an actual sword
I could decapitate a rapper, if he be lacking he gone
Know that my faction too strong, know that my passion that throne
Know that my team is afloat, whatever raft we be on
