Brooklyn based hip-hop connoisseur, Talib Kweli, premiered his debut track Lord of the Light today via COMPLEX, which was specially crafted for the HBO Game of Thrones Mixtape,

Volume Two. Lord of the Light fits in several Game of Thrones references while also showcasing themes from the show’s previous season. The HBO mixtape will feature hip-hop artists such as Snoop Dogg, Method Man, Yandel, and many others.

“This year, for the second year in a row, [Game of Thrones] created a mixtape to help promote the new season and asked me to do a song for it. They choose my song as the lead song to release to announce the mixtape.” –Talib Kweli
