Wale is a big fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones, which would explain why he’s agreed to contribute new material to the first Game of Thrones mixtape, entitled Catch the Throne: The Mixtape.
The rapper joins other super fans of the show including Big Boi, Common and Daddy Yankee on the 10-track project, which was designed to celebrate the upcoming fourth season of HBO’s hit show, beginning April 6.
The project also includes songs from up-and-coming artists Snow Tha Product, Bodega Bamz and Magazeen, among others.
If you’re unfamiliar with the popular series, the songs will feature Game of Thrones themes and story-lines from the first three seasons as well as samples from the original Game of Thrones soundtrack.
“We are excited to create an additional fan touch point with Catch the Throne: The Mixtape,” say Lucinda Martinez, SVP of multicultural narketing at HBO. “This is a unique opportunity to give fans great original music and an innovative way to highlight the electrifying Game of Thrones series.”
Catch the Throne: The Mixtape will be available for download via SoundCloud beginning on March 7.
