Snoop Dogg: ‘I watch ‘Game Of Thrones’ for historic reasons’

Rapper recently contributed a track to a 'Game Of Thrones' official mixtape

Snoop Dogg has revealed that he enjoys watching Game Of Thrones “for historic reasons”.

The rapper is known to be a fan of the HBO fantasy series, having contributed a track called ‘Lannister’s Anthem’ to an official Game Of Thrones mixtape that came out in March.

“When they asked me to do the track, I was more than honoured because I’m truly a fan of the show,” he recalled during an interview with the New York Post. “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!’

The rapper continued: “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.”

Asked what he had learned from the fictional world created by George R.R. Martin, the rapper replied: “That kings still rule and a bitch fucked everything up, in every situation!”

Snoop Dogg isn’t the only musician to have spoken about his love for Game Of Thrones recently. Ed Sheeran revealed last month (April) that he intends to “hound” the show’s producers for a guest role.
