"I really wanted the hip-hop community to embrace Hamilton because it’s such a love letter to them," says Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Hamilton fans rejoice! Lin-Manuel Miranda is planning to follow-up the play’s soundtrack with a mixtape inspired by the Broadway show.
Questlove is helping to produce the tape, which is scheduled to drop this year. Featured guests include Queen Latifah, Chance the Rapper, Common, Busta Rhymes and a number of other big names.
Miranda revealed, “People are coming out of the woodwork, knocking on the door. Half the songs are cover versions of songs in the show, and the others are interpolations—we’ll take some of this, some of that, and make something new out of it.”
He added, “I really wanted the hip-hop community to embrace Hamilton because it’s such a love letter to them.” If the soundtrack is any indication, then the mixtape is going to be fire!
