The Broadway hit Hamilton has now officially gone “Hip-Hop.” Check out the mixtape that accompanies this history-making play.
Rappers have been talking about getting “dead presidents” for years but this is next level.* Lin-Manuel Miranda, with assistance from Questlove of The Roots, has put together a mixtape to go along with his play about American founding father Alexander Hamilton.
The tape features heavy hitters like Nas, Chance The Rapper, The Roots, Wiz Khalifa, Queen Latifah as well as respected MCs like Joell Ortiz, K’NAAN and Dave East.
The mixtape was celebrated in New York City Thursday night with performances from Ja Rule, Ashanti, Audra Day and more.
Check out the tape which really does have some dope music on it below.
*Yes, we know Hamilton was not a president. But he is on the $10 bill.
