Lin-Manuel Miranda Taps Nas, Chance The Rapper for Hamilton Mixtape

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016


Lin-Manuel Miranda is basically a musical genius, having taken the story of one of America’s founding fathers and turned it into a Rap-based musical that managed to not only avoid being corny, but will go down as one of the most acclaimed plays in Broadway history. Today it was announced that the Hamilton inspired mixtape that he was said to be working on with ?uestlove will be available for pre-order tomorrow and he revealed the tracklist. If you’ve seen Hamilton, or any of the TV performances that the cast has put on over the past year (more likely), then you know Miranda is a true student of lyricism. Looking at the tracklist to this mixtape, this project will surely further cement his bona fides, as he has tapped a truly impressive cast of artists to ride with him. The list of guests includes The Roots, Nas, Chance The Rapper, Joell Ortiz, Busta Rhymes, Dave East and Common, and that’s just to name a few.

Continue below for the full tracklist and check back tomorrow for a pre-order link.

UPDATED: Pre-order link is live and the track “My Shot” featuring The Roots, Busta Rhymes, Joell Ortiz and Nate Ruess is now available to preview on Apple Music. See below.

Watch ?uestlove Perform Dice Raw’s “The Lesson Pt. 1” Verse

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

This is #VeryRare. It’s not often that you hear a verse from ?uestlove, but at the recent Roots Jam Session in LA, he gave Black Thought an assist with his performance of “The Lesson Pt. 1”, from the 1995 album Do You Want More?!!!??!, by filling in for Dice Raw and reciting his entire verse while drumming with one hand. Watch above and enjoy, because as he notes at the end, you’ll probably never see this happen again!
