“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,” nypost.com quoted the 43-year-old as saying.
When asked about the similarities between the TV show and the present life, he said, “Kings still rule and a woman messes up everything, in every situation."
The rapper has contributed to the mixtape of Game of Thrones season five. As one of the show's fans, he felt honoured for having been asked to contribute to the show.

"I was more than honoured because I'm truly a fan of the show. I would have done it for free, but they gave me some money on top of it, so I was like, 'why not, let's do it'," he said.
