At the tail end of 2016, Lin-Manuel Miranda celebrated the massive success of his Hamilton musical with an accompanying mixtape featuring Nas, Dave East, Common, Joell Ortiz, Ja Rule (who was trending today after trying to reignite his beef with 50 Cent on Twitter), and others.

Moving forward, Miranda has launched a new series called HamilDrops, where he plans to share new Hamilton-related content on a monthly basis. Starting with “Ben Franklin’s Song” with The Decemberists, the series continues with a new video for “Wrote My Way Out,” a standout from the mixtape that features Miranda, Nas, Dave East and Aloe Blacc doing their thing over !llmind production.

New York to the core, the black-and-white visual finds each artist rapping and singing to the camera while shots of the city and it’s youth are spliced in.
