Listen to Big Boi’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Track, ‘Mother Of Dragons’ – MP3 Premiere
With the news of the upcoming Game of Thrones mixtape hitting the web comes our first listen at one of the tracks on the upcoming hip-hop compilation.
Big Boi from Outkast has recorded “Mother of Dragons” about Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), a character whose popularity has only grown over the past two years, as she’s grown more aggressive in conjunction with the growth of her dragons. The track is for Catch the Throne, the mixtape that takes samples from Game of Thrones and weaves them with original beats and verses. The compilation will also feature Common, Wale, Daddy Yankee and more, as the worlds of Westeros and Essos apparently lend themselves to the musical stylings of current hip hop artists. The track has a solid beat, but I think I like the idea behind it more. And hey, there’s no reason a Game of Thrones mixtape shouldn’t be great. Hopefully, the rest of the mixtape delivers on the promise of its premise.
Catch the Throne releases for free online download today, Friday, March 7.
