Freestyling with Lin Manuel Miranda

A place for folks to sit back and enjoy some old fashioned chit-chat.

Freestyling with Lin Manuel Miranda

First off, I'd never heard of this guy before, but I expect to in the future. He is a composer and lyricist with a musical on (or off) Broadway called Hamilton. Apparently, the musical features a rap battle between Hamilton and Jefferson which may be worth the price of admission right there. However, Jimmy Fallon has him do a freestyling battle with one of the members of the Roots (the Tonight Show house band). It is amazing as they both work three random words into a coherent rap.

Oh! And JJ Abrams revealed recently that Lin Manuel Miranda helped write the cantina music in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
