A 'Hamilton' mixtape cut with a hefty lineup is liberated
After highlighting the upcoming Hamilton mixtape’s guest features with the last couple releases, from Busta Rhymes to Kelly Clarkson, Lin-Manuel Miranda finally joins the party. Today’s release off the mixtape, “Wrote My Way Out,” finds the Pulitzer Prize winner joining ranks with a heavy hitting trio: Nas, Dave East and Aloe Blacc.
Inspired by Alexander Hamilton using the written word to spread and promote his ideals, Nas, Dave East, Lin-Manuel and Aloe Blacc detail their own stories, highlighting when their respective pens helped pull them out of dark times. It’s a common theme that scores of artists, especially rappers, have discussed for years, and it’s nice to get the sentiment reiterated on such a large scale.
