Stream ‘The Hamilton Mixtape’ ft. The Roots, Common, Nas, Chance The Rapper + More

Don’t think anyone could have imagined that Hamilton, the Broadway blockbuster written, created and, for most of its run, starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, would have taken on the monolithic form we now have before us. Records were broken, tickets are still near-impossible to come by and the gamut of cultural heavyweights — from pop icons to politicians — have pledged their adoration for the Miranda’s reclamation of history.

And though prospects of actually seeing the show remain at a criminal low, one thing Miranda and his ever-expanding mob of superstar supporters have been able to share with those of us willing (or reasonably unable) to pay between $100 and $1,000 for a stub, is curated mixtape inspired by the show, where The Roots, Common, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Chance The Rapper, Francis & The Lights, John Legend, Alicia Keys and basically all of your favorite musicians recalibrate the show’s Grammy-winning score with their own personal touches.

Today The Hamilton Mixtape has officially landed to help you wait out the ticket lottery. It should be noted that if you’re intending to give this thing a run on your lunch hour you maybe getting into a bit more of an emotional journey than you’ll be able to explain to your coworkers upon return. It’s deep, rich and timely notes just when you need it most. Stream The Hamilton Mixtape below via Spotify and pick up your digital copy on iTunes today.
