The following hip hop homage is dedicated to the three Baratheon brothers from Game of Thrones and their claims to the Iron Throne of Westeros. The rap is a parody of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow,” which makes perfect sense because those are the clan colours.
The nerd-tacular wrap was written and performed by Nathan Cox and Andy Davison with additional vocals by Kyle Henick.
YouTubers are already recommending tracks for future raps. How about a Stark Edition to “Ice Ice Baby?” A Targaryen version to “No Church in the Wild?”
Watch it here:
Wiz Khalifa has become one of the kings of hip/hop, but now a rapper is accusing Wiz of ripping him off. We are sure you have heard of Wiz’s hit “Black and Yellow.” Well a Pennsylvania rapper named Maxamillion says that track is his.
Maxamillion is saying “Black and Yellow” is an obvious rip-off of his own track, “Pink N Yellow.” TMZ reports Wiz is saying that’s complete bullsh*t, because he has never even heard of “Pink N Yellow.” A source says, “Wiz has never heard of this guy … it’s just a plot that happens all the the time to rappers to get money. This is just some no-name rapper who wants to get paid.”
Eitherway, Maxamillion is now suing Wiz for $2.3 Million.
What do you think? Do these tracks sound similar?
“Rolling Papers.” technically the third album from the kid “gettin his stoner on”, features much of the same atmospheric beats and synth-like tones of Deal or No Deal, however “Black and Yellow”, “Get Your Sh!t”, and “No Sleep” will keep pop-purists smitten.
Somewhat of a double-edged sword for Wiz: While the leak is sure to diminish opening-week sales, the hype for the album has been exponentially increased as of late, as it has come out to generally rave reviews. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Rolling Papers in smoke-filled rooms all across the globe this spring. (Not that I’ll be in those rooms…)
