It's Number 1 on the Rap charts, which no other OBCR had ever done (obviously), but chart positions don't just go by airplay anymore. It's a combo of airplay (which I'm guessing Hamilton gets very little of) and SPS, or Streams Plus Sales. Their SPS numbers are what's allowing this album to achieve this feat. I think it's also going to be back in the Top 20 of the Hot 200 this week. Nothing too sneeze at for a Broadway album.
You mean like...we only hear about negative audience behavior at other shows? No one comes on here to post that the audience was super well behaved.....there have been crazy people at all different types of Broadway shows and people post on here about then frequently. So if you're it trying to pull the racial card, what card is it?
I will be there. Very excited. This was one the second show I saw on Broadway during my first trip to New York, so I'm eager to both hear the music again and see this production that I've heard so much about. And what a cast!!!
Not able to make it to NYC due to a family emergency. Would anyone like to have this ticket? I think I can call 2ST to have it changed to someone else's name. Would hate to have it go to waste.

So he doesn't understand hip-hop, which means the chances of him liking Hamilton at all were slim-to-none to begin with. Couple that with that fact that he and his sources have been shut out from knowing anything going on within the Hamilton camp and it's easy to see why he has a vendetta against this show. He's got no gossip to go on.
