If you’re one of those people who haven’t seen Hamilton but would give your right ventricle to, you can get one step closer, spiritually, by checking out Lin-Manuel Miranda’s latest offering relating to the musical: the first Hamilton mixtape, which is now available for purchase and streaming. The lengthy release comes following a string of previously released tracks—and there’s another mixtape on the way, apparently.
The guest list is formidable: Chance the Rapper, Miguel, Sia, Alicia Keys, the Roots, Queen Latifah, Busta Rhymes, good ol’ Ben Folds … no one wanted to “give away [their] shot”! You know what else is fun? It’s 23 songs, but Spotify’s deluxe version, with interludes and clips from the cast recording, divides it up into 69 tracks. Nice! Mike Pence is going to love this.
Listen below, or go see Moana or something.
