Talib Kweli "Lord of the Light"
Published Mar 06, 2015As previously reported, high fantasy program Game of Thrones will be delivering the Catch the Throne: The Mixtape Vol. 2 just ahead of the start of the show's fifth season. While it will land March 17, you can check out Talib Kweli sharpening his skill on a sword-swinging track called "Lord of the Light" right now.
The New York rap god's tribute to the Red God, R'hllor, comes chock-a-block with innumerable references to the show, as Kweli waxes philosophical above a medieval beat about various battles, the people's fight against disease and famine ("fuck the king, cuz we famished"), and more.
Winter may be coming, but you can catch Talib Kweli's track down below.
As previously reported, Catch the Throne: The Mixtape Vol. 2 will also feature contributions from Mastodon, Method Man, Anthrax, Snoop Dogg, Killswitch Engage and more.
The new season of Game of Thrones starts April 12.
