“Daenerys Targaryen is such an amazing character to me. She’s a boss,” says nerdcore rapper MC LARS about the subject of his brand new song and video “DRAGON BLOOD”. Based on HBO‘s massively popular series GAME OF THRONES, the song is a paean to the regal character Daenarys (played by actress Emilia Clarke) who is adamant in establishing her reign via the help of her small cluster of dragons (“It’s the mother of dragons, with my gigantic army / We be marching to Meereen but, no, we didn’t come to party“). “I’m excited to partner with Nerdist to premiere this video,” Lars says. “I have been a fan of Chris Hardwick’s empire for years; they are always on top of the coolest things happening on the underground but also nerd culture stuff in the mainstream.”
“We live in an age of changing spheres of power and Daenarys reflects this for sure,” he explains. “This is my first song ever written from an entirely female voice and I wanted to channel someone with whom people can identify, so I rewatched all of the episodes to date and went deep into any online Thrones resources I could find. I made spreadsheets of all of Martin’s rhyming terminology, spending a whole week looking for words that would sound good together and matching them in Excel (‘Tyrion / High Valyrian’ for example). I never thought I could reference Cersei Lannister, Migos, Kanye West and Rage Against the Machine all in the same song, but I guess crazier things have happened in hip-hop!
