Questlove & Black Thought Discuss Forthcoming ‘Hamilton’ Mixtape With Usher, Sia, Chance The Rapper, And More

first_imgGet ready Hamilton fans, as a ridiculous, Hamilton-inspired mixtape is headed your way this Fall. Due to come out some time in October, according to Billboard, the mixtape will be produced by Questlove and Black Thought of The Roots, and will feature guest appearances by, Usher, Sia, Chance The Rapper, Busta Rhymes, and Ben Folds, among others.While the project was originally discussed by show creator Lin Manuel Miranda on his Twitter account back in October 2015, it has taken a little time to make the mixtape happen, with ?uestlove and Black Thought too consumed with crafting the cast album for the play, before turning their attention to the mixtape. The project is said to include covers from the show, which has a stellar soundtrack, as performed by popular artists, along with songs inspired by the play. Questlove had this to say about the project:“We’re in the final stages. We were brought in to produce the cast album and now the massive success of that album is leading to the original idea. Hamilton started out as an idea for a mixtape and nothing else. Then they were like, ‘Let’s do this play first and see what happens.’ So this is the ‘see what happens’ part.”With such a diverse lineup, an interesting theme, and the master of pop culture–?uestlove–in the driver’s seat, we’re definitely looking forward to listening to this unique mixtape when it comes out!last_img
