Tune in and turn up

In an interesting move, HBO series Game of Thrones has decided to extend its reach by creating a mixtape in honor of the show. They’ve hired 10 rappers to partake in its content, including OutKast’s Big Boi, Wale, Common, Bodega Bamz, Daddy Yankee and more, for what is titled Catch the Throne. Hip-hop culture and the fantasy show might seem to have little in common but Common himself ensures he has a lot of faith in the show, insisting “there are no limitations to hip-hop culture.” You can check out the tunes yourself by streaming the full mixtape, which has just dropped today, via SoundCloud. And watch the second trailer of season 4 of Game of Thrones here.
