Hamilton – The Freaking Amazing Hip-Hop Musical

Hi guys,

Today I am going to talk to you about a phenomenal, amazing and pretty rad hip-hop musical you probably have heard about – Hamilton, An American Musical. If you haven’t heard about it, literally, how have you not? It’s so good, and I recommend the Original Cast Recording of Hamilton on Spotify! Now Lin-Manuel- I mean my literal hero and god, turned a biography about one of the Founding Fathers Alexander Hamilton into a rap musical – filled with the Revolutionary War, King George III being fabulous and most of all the gift god gave us to the world – Anthony Ramos. He is a literal gift to the world, praise the smol bean forever! Anyway, back to the actual topic, it took over 7 years for Lin to write all 46 songs in the Hamilton album, and all of them have an amazing background to them. They also won 11 Tony awards this year, one of them for best choreography and best musical!

Literally look at this mans face. This is Lin-Manuel Miranda and he looks so fabulous, man. I’m totally not printing this image out and putting it on my wall.

Look. At. This. Fan. Art. It is marvellous and shows the squad perfectly (Hamilton, Lafayette, Laurens and Mulligan.)

Ok, I totally don’t ship lams. Joking, I ship them so much! This was one of my favourite lines and showed how close their friendship was. Laurens is on the left and Hamilton is on the right.

Ok literally, this is so cute. My ship. There is literally so many moments like this in Hamilton between Laurens and Hamilton.

Ok, Philip Hamilton is literally one of my favourite characters, and I feel like he isn’t recognised enough. He DIED for his own father because someone was talking trash about him. And then he still stayed strong whilst dying.

Ok, totally not another Lams moment, because look how cute they are!

Thomas Jefferson is the swag-master and one of the most fabulous Founding Fathers, because dude look at that suit man! I love it! He deserves heaps more credit honestly.

Now, I’m hoping those points made you see that Hamilton is awesome, because I was fangirling the whole time whilst writing it. Jefferson, Hamilton, Laurens, Lafayette, all of the Founding Fathers of America and the Constitution and Federalist Papers deserve more credit for all the work they did making America strive and be a strong independent country. So if you haven’t, you have GOT TO listen to the Hamilton playlist, because its so good! I hope you all are enjoying your day and week, comment down below who your favourite Founding Father is!

  1. I hope you’ll be pleased to know that Lams is LITERALLY canon — not just in the show, but in real life. They uncovered a bunch of letter written between the two that suggest a little bit more than a strong friendship, along with some parts that were permanently crossed out by Hamilton’s ancestors likely because they explicitly stated what the public shouldn’t know

      1. “Burr, check what we got, Mr. Lafayette, hard-rock like Lancelot, I think your pants look hot…”

        *Okay Hamilton you got this just don’t make it obvious*

        “Laurens, I like you a lot!”
