'Game of Thrones' Getting Official Hip Hop Mixtape
Common, Big Boi, and, sadly, not Stevie Nicks are among the artists reportedly contributing to Catch the Throne, the hip hop compilation that will finally give high-fantasy programming the street cred it deserves. According to the Wall Street Journal (via), HBO has put together the ten-song mix with the goal of reaching out to black and latino audiences in ways that casting a few more people of color would simply make too easy. It's expected to arrive online on Friday, bringing with it lyrics like, "I sit and think when I'm in my zone / This life is like a Game of Thrones"; "I'm tellin' whoever messin' with me / I can bring you that Khaleesi heat"; and "Dungeons, dragons, kings and queens!" You're going to want headphones for this one.
