Game of Thrones returns April 12 with its fifth season premiere, and, fortunately for us, the Roots’ Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter offered a recap in rap form on The Tonight Show. (In anticipation of the premiere, George R.R. Martin has also released a chapter from The Winds of Winter.) Trotter’s rap ends with a usefully succinct summary of the HBO series: “It’s nothin’ but drama … It’s nothin’ but drama, yeah.”
