Snoop Dogg, Ty Dolla $ign and Mastodon reign supreme on Catch the Throne: The Mixtape Vol. 2, the second installment of the mixtape series inspired by HBO's Game of Thrones, which is available to stream in its entirety now, Pitchfork reports.
The new 15-track collection can be heard and downloaded for free via both SoundCloud and iTunes, and arrives a little less than a month before Game of Thrones begins its fifth season. Catch the Throne was produced by Launch Point Records and features samples of music used during Season Four of GoT.
Catch the Throne, Vol. 2 boasts a diverse array of artists from across numerous genres, though it's primarily rooted in hip-hop and metal. Alongside rap luminaries Talib Kweli and Method Man, and contemporary metal groups like Mastodon and Mushroomhead, the collection includes tracks from British singer Estelle, electro pop artist MNDR, Puerto Rican reggaeton musician Yandel and Eighties thrash metal outfit Anthrax. A full track list is below.
The first Catch the Throne tape arrived last March with songs from Big Boi, Daddy Yankee, Common and Wale; it has since been streamed over 2.5 million times.
Game of Thrones returns for its fifth season on April 12th and HBO has been dutifully teasing the bloodshed and mayhem to come. Along with the epic battles, swordplay and dragon-related destruction previewed in the season's first official trailer, HBO also released a 26-minute documentary special chronicling the making of Season Five, complete with insights from producers Chris Newman, Duncan Muggoch and Peter Welter Soler.
