Is there anything Game of Thrones fandom can’t infiltrate? Even the LCBO is getting in on that sweet, sweet Westeros action. Ever since the hyper-popular show premiered back in 2011, no cultural sphere has been safe from the swords n’ dragons treatment, and naturally that includes hip-hop…lots and lots of hip hop. Some of it’s even pretty decent!
The show is returning for its penultimate, seven-episode season on July 16, and just in case you were looking for a unusual, engaging recap to get back into the (overly bloody) swing of things, rap legend Rass Kass has got you covered with, as he puts it, a “lyrical Red Wedding” that pulls double duty as a comprehensive GoT season 6 recap and a pretty solid boom-bap throwback.
Featuring A+ couplets like “Walder Frey eats himself / Then Arya slit his neck, she creeps with stealth”, the four minute song is the perfect way to get ready for July. Let’s just hope we get a stronger Arya plot than last seasons’.
