Early today, Hamilton genius Lin-Manuel Miranda, took to Twitter to announce that, at long last, the Hamilton Mixtape is ready for its closeup.
For the uninitiated, Hamilton the Musical was originally going to be a mixtape but we all know how that turned out. Instead of making a hip-hop album about the founding father, it became a world wide phenom that earned Tonys, a Grammy, and a Pulitzer prize. The original cast album has made regular appearances on multiple Billboard top 10 lists and recently went double platinum.
To say it’s popular is like saying water is wet.
