"GoT" Goes Hip Hop in Star-Studded Mixtape
A fantasy-themed track by Big Boi has been released to honor "GoT."
If you thought a "Game of Thrones" mixtape would feature war drums and pastoral lutes, think again.
"OutKast's" Big Boi has just premiered the hip hop track "Mother Of Dragons," where he raps about "Khaleesi" and repeats the line, "Dungeons, dragons, kings, and queens." The track is included in "Catch the Throne"—a hip hop and reggaeton mixtape inspired by the wildly popular fantasy epic HBO series, the fourth season of which will premiere on April 6. Other artists featured in "Catch the Throne" include Common, Daddy Yankee, Snow Tha Product, MC Bodega Bamz, Magazeen, and Wale.
"Our multicultural audiences are a very important part of our subscribers, and we don't want to take them for granted," said Lucy Martinez, a senior vice president at HBO. According to Martinez, the mixtape, which will be released on March 7, is an attempt to appeal to a diverse audience.
