Big Boi Raps About Favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ Character on ‘Mother of Dragons’
As Big Boi mentioned before, a mixtape based on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ is coming out. ‘Mother of Dragons,’ his heavy ode to the character Khaleesi, is the first single to drop from the project titled ‘Catch the Throne.’
Don’t expect any idiosyncratic street tales on ‘Mother of Dragons’ because everything from the tribal instrumental to lyrics is dedicated to the character and the show. The main takeaway here is Big Boi is a huge Khaleesi fan and only wants to see her succeed after the drama of last season. “It won’t be that much longer / Before Khaleesi take the Iron Throne / They call her the mother of Dragons,” Big Boi raps.
This track could very well alienate some Big Boi fans. But for someone who’s both a ‘Game of Thrones’ and Big Boi supporter, the idea of a sub-three minute flash of references and the rapper’s energy is difficult to refuse.
There are still songs from Wale, Common and possibly a Daddy Yankee reggaeton song coming on the ‘Game of Thrones’ mixtape. Anybody tried superimposing ‘Rompe‘ over the Red Wedding scene? Anyway, the tape drops Friday (March 7) and season four of ‘Game of Thrones’ starts April 6.
