HBO Launches 10-Song Hip-Hop & Reggaeton 'Game of Thrones' Mixtape

Game Of Thrones

HBO has teamed up with hip-hop and reggaeton artists to produce the first Game of Thrones mixtape, entitled Catch The Throne: The Mixtape, likely inspired by Watch the Throne, the collaborative studio album by Jay-Z and Kanye West.

Today, the premium cable network announced plans to release the mixtape in preparation for the April 6th season 4 debut of the multiple award-winning series.

Catch The Throne: The Mixtape will include exclusive tracks from Wale, Big Boi, Common and Daddy Yankee, in addition to songs from up-and-coming artists Snow Tha Product, Bodega Bamz, Magazeen and more.

The hip-hop and reggaeton, 10-song mixtape will be based on Game of Thrones themes and story-lines from seasons 1-3. Each song on the mixtape will sample music from the original Game of Thrones soundtrack. As self-proclaimed superfans of the acclaimed series, the artists have created songs that will "encourage and inspire listeners who may not have been immersed in the storylines to catch up on previous seasons of "Game of Thrones" using HBOGO."

"We are excited to create an additional fan touch point with Catch The Throne: The Mixtape," says Lucinda Martinez, SVP of Multicultural Marketing 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."

The release of Catch The Throne: The Mixtape will kick off during an event celebrating "Game of Thrones: The Exhibition" at the upcoming SXSW festival on Friday, March 7, 2014. The exhibition will run from March 7-11 in Austin, TX and will include listening stations featuring Catch The Throne: The Mixtape.

Produced by Launch Point Records, the mixtape features series-inspired tracks, including the theme song by Wale; Season 1 by Big Boi, Bodega Bamz and Magazeen; Season 2 by Daddy Yankee, Kilo Kish and Dominik Omega; and Season 3 by Common, Snow Tha Product and Dee Goodz

The free Catch The Throne: The Mixtape will be available for download at www.soundcloud.com/catchthethrone beginning on March 7, 2014. Listeners are encouraged to share using the hashtag #CatchTheThrone.
