Yesterday, we told you that HBO was releasing an album of rap songs inspired by Game of Thrones, and we had a nice chuckle at the incongruity of it all. But now HBO has released the first song from said album — "King Slayer" by Wale — and damn if it isn't kind of awesome. Listen to it here!



Not bad, right? Anyways, here's Catch the Throne's full track list:

1. Big Boi – "Mother of Dragons"
2. Magazeen – "Iron Throne"
3. Bodega Bamz – "Win or Die"
4. Kilo Kish – "Magical Reality"
5. Daddy Yankee – "Born to Rule"
6. Dominik Omega – "Arya's Prayer"
7. Snow – "Fire"
8. Dee Goodz – "The Parallel"
9. Common – "Interlude/The Ladder"
10. Wale – "King Slayer"

I was really hoping that Robert Baratheon might do a cover of "Big Poppa," but these sound pretty good too. Remember, the album comes out for free on Friday the 7th!

Anyone gonna comment on the irony of A: a guy named Snow on a GOT album and B: the fact that he's singing a song called "Fire"? Really, it should be "Yes, I'm a Bastard."
