The Hamilton Mixtape
Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton songs yearn to breathe free, and The Hamilton Mixtape shows how these tunes might keep evolving off Broadway. Miranda's freestyling expertise is tested by rapper Nas in "Wrote My Way Out," while "Yorktown" is translated into the dynamic crew rap "Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)." R&B vocalists dominate in the second half. John Legend delivers "History Has Its Eyes on You" as a spiritual, and Jill Scott sings "Say Yes to This" with lusty brio.
