The list boasts stellar names, like Queen Latifah, Usher and John Legend, along with pop stars such as Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys. Miranda has described the mixtape as a tribute to the artists who inspired a lot of the songs in the musical, such as Nas, Busta Rhymes, and Ja Rule (eagle-eyed fans have pointed out that Ja Rule is appropriately featured on the track “Helpless”, a number on the show where Miranda imitates his trademark growl). It’s a collection that spans genres and generations, also featuring artists like Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, Andra Day, and even an appearance from late night host Jimmy Fallon. Hamilton cast album executive producers The Roots are also very prominently featured throughout.
