Lin-Manuel Miranda is ringing in 2018 with a New 12 months’s throwback.
Six years in the past, earlier than he was a family title for being the mastermind behind Hamilton, Miranda was only a informal genius who had already written the Broadway hit Within the Heights. On New 12 months’s Eve 2011, whereas toiling over a musical that he couldn’t have identified would turn into a phenomenon, he tweeted, “It’s very hard to write battle raps between Jefferson and Hamilton when you’re nowhere near as smart as the people for whom you are writing. The hamster in the hamster wheel that runs my fevered brain needs a drink.”
In fact, the labor of that hamster in Miranda’s head yielded some smart phrases — enterprising males quote ‘em (don’t act shocked, you guys, ‘cause he wrote ‘em). So on this fine New Year’s Eve, the person who could be Hamilton shared his six-year-old rap-battle lament with the inspirational commentary: “What I was doing on New Years Eve 2011. The work is hard but it is worth it. Don’t give up.”
Speak about not throwing away his shot. Blissful New 12 months!Related youtube video: (not from post)
