The Roots's One-Minute 'Game of Thrones' Recap Is the Only Recap You Need

"It's nothin' but drama, it's nothin' but drama yeah."

Jay Z and Kanye West better watch the throne—because The Roots just dropped a new jam that's hotter than Essos.

Last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the band's resident wordsmith Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter masterfully recapped Game of Thrones seasons 1-4 in a 1-minute rap so infectious we're already memorizing the lyrics. And trust, what it lacks in length, it makes up for in deft rhymes that cover all of the show's most pivotal plot lines including King Joffrey's death, Bran's premonitions, Sansa skipping town, Tyrion's misfortune, and those naughty dragons. At the end, Trotter hits the show's overarching theme on the head rapping, "It's nothin' but drama, it's nothin' but drama yeah."

Ahead of Game of Thrones' return on April 12, let these guys get you up to speed in smooth fashion, below:
