Wiz Khalifa, Usher and John Legend collaborate on Hamilton mixtape
“It’s truly astonishing that in a country founded by immigrants, ‘immigrant’ has somehow become a bad word” is only one of the many truthbombs the Hamilton mixtape drops. Hamilton is an American hip-hop musical about the Founding Fathers (yes, you read that right) that is winning all the prizes in the United States. The music is heavy on societal criticism and racial issues. But even though the musical and the songs are actually about the first presidents and governments of the US, the lyrics are unbelievably applicable to today’s clusterfuck that is American (and let's be honest, European as well) politics.
In addition to that it sounds amazing. A whole lot of famous artists, such as Wiz Khalifa, Busta Rhymes, Alicia Keys, Queen Latifah, John Legend, Usher and many more, have united to cover most songs from the original musical. Even talkshow host Jimmy Fallon is on it. K’naan made a song especially for this mixtape, and it’s right on, in every way imaginable.
Don’t worry if you can’t get enough, because Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created the Hamilton musical and mixtape, tweeted that there’s a Volume 2 on its way.

OF COURSE vol. 2!
(Lemme finish vol 1 tho) https://t.co/OE4soxfPLJ
But in the meantime, you can listen to the whole mixtape on Spotify.

Daarbovenop kunnen je altruïstische motieven ook in vraag worden gesteld wanneer je op sociale media te veel foto’s post van dit vrijwilligerswerk.
