Lin-Manuel Miranda Teases Songs From Second 'Hamilton Mixtape'
Fresh off Friday's release of the Hamilton Mixtape, Lin-Manuel Miranda dropped more hints about the second volume, noting that the follow-up collection will include George Washington's introduction "Right Hand Man" and Alexander Hamilton's expose "The Reynolds Pamphlet" (which includes that memorable "never gon' be president now" line).
Right Hand Man. Reynolds Pamphlet. They were already underway but couldn't get em done in time. https://t.co/XdfS8oCDjA— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) December 5, 2016
Last month, the creator of the hit Broadway musical also noted that the "The Schuyler Sisters," which first introduces Angelica and Eliza, as well as Aaron Burr's standout "The Room Where It Happens" and Washington's swan song "One Last Time" would also be on the second volume.
What, y'all though we'd leave Schuyler Sisters unremixed? Room Where It Happens? One Last Time?— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) November 9, 2016

The first Atlantic Records collection features hitmakers as Alicia Keys, John Legend, Usher, Wiz Khalifa, Common, Sia and Nas performing offshoot songs inspired by the hit production. The release was feted with a live-streamed concert at the Richard Rodgers Theater, featuring The Roots, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Andra Day, Regina Spektor, Joell Ortiz, Illmind and J.Period.
No release date has been set for the second Hamilton Mixtape. Miranda — currently preparing for the production's U.K. debut and his starring turn in Disney's Mary Poppins Returns — further told fans on Monday, "Please savor this one I'm so tired."
