Questlove and Lin-Manuel Miranda Announce 'The Hamilton Mixtape'
The project will include cover songs from Hamilton as well as original material inspired by the musical. The tape is a collaborative project between Hamilton star and writer Lin-Maunel Miranda and Questlove of The Roots.
Miranda tells Variety his idea on doing the mixtape originated before the actual play, "To me, Hamilton was a hip-hop artist. He used his words to get everywhere. He also ruined his life using those verbal abilities. I thought of this as a concept album like Jesus Christ Superstar; that was an album before it was staged as a show. I wanted to write really dense, fun lyrics like my favorite hip-hop artists did." Read more here.
