From the opening bars of Big Boi’s ‘Mother of Dragons’ (“Dungeons, dragons, kings and queens… Before Khaleesi take the Iron Throne/They call her Mother of Dragons, you under attack, n***er, this is our home/Targaryen, the rightful bloodline“) to the parting sentiment on offer from Wale’s ‘King Slayer’ (“I’m like a Lannister, I run my town like seven kingdoms”), the HBO-commissioned Game Of Thrones mixtape, Catch The Throne, excels where so many others have failed to capture that perfect symbiosis of hip-hop braggadocio and dragons. 

Game Of Thrones returns in four weeks and eighteen hours on April 6th.
