Do you ever just wake up in the morning and think, “Man, thank God Snoop Dogg exists in this world.” Just me? WHATEVER! You’re totally missing out. Anyhow, Snoop recently contributed to an HBO project that’s… actually a Game of Thrones mixtape, compiling songs to accompany the series to connect to younger fans, I suppose. It seems unnecessary, but HBO is running with it, and Snoop was actually pretty stoked to be involved. After all, he loves watching the show so he can learn all about history!
From Page Six:
“When they asked me to do the track, I was more than honored because I’m truly a fan of the show. I would have done it for free, but they gave me some money on top of it, so I was like, “Fuck it, let’s do it!” I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here. I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now.”
On drawing parallels between ‘Thrones’ and the real world: “That kings still rule and a bitch fucked everything up, in every situation!”
Yikes. To hear Snoop’s song, “Lannisters Anthem” (LOL), press play below:
