To promote Game of Thrones HBO has commissioned rap artists to write songs for a mixtape titled “Catch a Throne” that’s going to be released on Friday. So just in case you were sad about living in a world without a rap album about medieval fantasy, don’t worry. That world ends on Friday.

What would a Game of Thrones rap song even sound like? Luckily, it’s already kind of a thing:

 That’s Dominik Omega’s remix of the Game of Thrones theme, and it’s great.

The Wall Street Journal has more details about the mixtape’s lineup if you’re interested. We certainly know what we’ll be listening to this weekend.
