The Hamilton Mixtape

As anyone who took AP US History from Mr. Cortopassi can attest: Alexander Hamilton was a snake and the Federalists can be blamed for almost everything.

Mr. Cortopassi is my favorite teacher of all time, and it is in his honor that I am posting this epic video of playwright/performer Lin-Manuel Miranda’s performance at the White House’s Evening of Poetry of the first song off his forthcoming rap album The Hamilton Mixtape.” Yes, that’s right, he’s writing an entire hip-hop album about Alexander Hamilton. Evidently along with being a money-hungry federalist snake, Hamilton was an OG.
