LISTEN: Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Cut Rap Battle For Jefferson in HAMILTON
Lin-Manuel Miranda took to Twitter yet again this morning to share another demo he had recorded during the early days of Hamilton.
This track, which is untitled, is a cut rap battle for Jefferson. Miranda said it was meant to be placed after The Reynold Pamphlet, but it was never performed.
Here's another Hamilton demo! I'm decluttering before the end of the year!- Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) December 12, 2018
It's a 3rd rap battle I wrote for Jefferson, for that first concert we did at Lincoln Center, after the Reynolds Pamphlet. It was never performed. Enjoy! https://t.co/0dDTpBjUdj
