Nas, Dave East, Aloe Blacc and Lin-Manuel Miranda Team Up for “Wrote My Way Out”
The highly anticipated Hamilton Mixtape, a companion piece to the hit musical, is scheduled to drop next month. Listeners get a preview of the project with the new track "Wrote My Way Out" featuring Nas, Dave East, Aloe Blacc and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The song puts a new spin on the Hamilton track "Hurricane," which includes a lyric that became this anthem's title. Nas kicks off the track with a verse that sets the tone for the entire record.
"I picked up the pen like Hamilton/Street analyst, now I write words that try to channel them/No political power, just lyrical power/Sitting on a crate on a corner, sipping for hours," Nas raps.
The Hamilton Mixtape, which was curated by Lin-Manuel Miranda, will be released on Dec. 2. Check out the tracklist for the long awited project below.
