Regina Spektor and Black Thought perform at Hamilton Mixtape Concert — watch

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton-inspired collection drops tomorrow


    Tomorrow marks the release of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton mixtape, a massive, 23-track collection of songs inspired by his Tony Award-winning musical of the same name. Joining Miranda on the effort is a sprawling list of artists, including Chance the Rapper, Sia, Nas, Alicia Keys, and Miguel.

    To celebrate, a special concert took place this afternoon at Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York, where productions of Hamilton are staged regularly. Miranda was sadly not in attendance, but a number of the mixtape’s other artists were, including Regina Spektor, who performed her lovely and animated “Dear Theodosia”, the first song recorded for the collection, and Black Thought of The Roots, who masterfully pulled double duty on “John Trumbull” and a remix of “My Shots”. Soul singer Andra Day also appeared to do “Burn” and Ashanti and Ja Rule reunited for “Helpless”.
