HBO's Game Of Thrones has seen musical contributions from bands like The Hold Steady and The National, but now Westeros is getting the hip-hop treatment. The just-announced Catch The Throne mixtape will feature the likes of Common, Wale, Big Boi, Daddy Yankee, Snow Tha Product, and more.
The first offering from the tape is Big Boi's "Mother Of Dragons," a track dedicated to Khaleesi and rightful heir to the Iron Throne, Daenerys Targaryen. He recaps the developments in the show's 3rd season, spitting barbs at anyone who stands between Targaryen and her rightful place in King's Landing. With lines like "Fuck the Lannisters," Big Boi certainly doesn't have a problem claiming allegiances. Listen to "Mother Of Dragons" above.
Speaking to Vibe, Big Boi said:
"Khaleesi, the Mother of Dragons is one of my favorite characters. The throne actually belongs to her and to see her plight to get back on top to where she belongs has been the thing. Last season ended with the Red Wedding when the Lannisters knocked everybody off... like James Brown said, it's the season to get the big payback."
Check out the trailer for Catch The Throne below. The 4th season of Game Of Thrones premieres on HBO April 6th. For more news, music, videos, and tour dates, check out Big Boi's Zumic artist page.
