[Mixtape] Game of Thrones: “Catch The Throne”

Well, apparently hip-hop is big in King’s Landing too. If there was one show that had its fair share of buzz going into the Spring debut season, HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ certainly isn’t one of them. The return of the highly popular show has been eagerly awaited by fans, teased by the cable channel and popped up in its fair share of pop culture references. Well, now King Joffrey, Daenaryus and Littlefinger will have a more contemporary soundtrack over which to go about their land grabbing and battles. Featuring the likes of Big Boi, Wale, Kilo Kish and Dadee Yankee, among others, the mixtape could very well represent the point at which the release vessel jumps the ship. Sure, we’ve seen everyone from Michelle Obama to Migos drop projects for free on the Internet, maybe HBO has taken it too far, although you can’t fault the artists for getting that publishing money. Check out the full project below, ‘Game of Thrones’ hits TVs April 3.
