Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda Turn Hamilton’s Biggie Homage Into a Pro-Hillary Clinton Anthem
Three months after Lin-Manuel Miranda’s departure, Hamilton has finally jumped the shark. Monday night, Miranda and Hamilton star Renée Elise Goldsberry performed a rewrite of the musical’s “Ten Duel Commandments” (basically the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ten Crack Commandments” with 18th-century pizzaz) at a Broadway fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Because this was a fundraiser, the new lyrics aim to convince you to vote—preferably for Clinton. The results were unfortunate and corny, according to the lyrics sheet below.

The lyrical miracles include “Tim Kaine in the membrane,” “We know Hillary’s no quitter, we watch as her opponent sits and fiddles with his Twitter,” and “I have only one overwhelming feeling: anybody here want to shatter a glass ceiling?” Embrace the agitprop below.
