Hamilton is arguably the most popular ticket on Broadway and its star is already reaping presidential benefits. Lin-Manuel Miranda hit up the White House to freestyle for President Obama in the famed rose garden.
Obama says “drop the beat,” to kick off the freestyle session. He then holds up a bunch of mostly political topics (i.e. the Constitution, POTUS, Obamacare, immigrants, NASA, and Congress) to which Miranda throws in his rhyme.
The commander in chief wondered if the clip would go viral, and it looks like he has his answer.
Check the freestyle below.
