Joey Bada$$ and A$AP Rocky are comin' for the pantheon.
HBO and Columbia Records' officially licensed Game Of Thrones companion album is set to arrive on April 26th, on the same weekend as the series' third episode. At first, some feared this would be an actual soundtrack to the series, serving as an unfortunate and immersion breaking replacement to Ramin Djawadi's stellar score. That is indeed not the case. For The Throne is merely derived from music inspired by the Thrones series, as indicated by some of the song titles.
If only Ty Dolla $ign hopped on board, we might have been looking at a new world record: most dollar-sign symbols in a single collaboration. In any case, we're happy to see A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$ on the same track, and we can only hope it's a banger. While "Too Many Gods" has obvious Game Of Thrones connotations, it's also easy to see how such a concept might adapt to the rap game. Aside from that one, we're looking at hip-hop contributions from SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott, as well as one from Lil Peep and Ty Dolla $ign.
