Just a day after fans learned hip hop artists will be releasing a mixtape of Game of Thrones-inspired music, even more details about “Catch the Throne” have been provided, courtesy of Billboard. The full tracklist has now been unveiled, and Billboard reveals that some performers “nerded out” more than others, with rappers like Common making multiple specific references to the show. Three artists took on each season, with Big Boi, Bodega Bamz and Magazeen handling season 1; Kilo Kish, Daddy Yankee and Dominik Omega on season 2; and Common, Snow Tha Product and Dee Goodz tackling season 3.
The tracklist for “Catch the Throne”:
1. Big Boi – “Mother of Dragons”
2. Magazeen – “Iron Throne”
3. Bodega Bamz – “Win or Die”
4. Kilo Kish – “Magical Reality”
5. Daddy Yankee – “Born to Rule”
6. Dominik Omega – “Arya’s Prayer”
7. Snow – “Fire”
8. Dee Goodz – “The Parallel”
9. Common – “Interlude/The Ladder”
10. Wale – “King Slayer”
As a bonus, one of the songs has made its debut already. “King Slayer” by Wale heavily features the main theme from Game of Thrones and samples from the late Ned Stark.
Ours is the Fury: It’s a fun track, and I always love seeing how people play with the main theme. As for the rest of the mixtape, I’m not familiar with a lot of the artists, but I’m curious to see what Common has created and about these Red Wedding references he’s apparently worked in.
