After waiting nearly a year, we're less than a month away from finally getting our hands on the long-promised Hamilton Mixtape (Dec. 2). So, of course, it's time to start obsessing about when we're going to get the second volume of magic from Lin-Manuel Miranda and company. On Wednesday night (Nov. 9), the historical hip-hop musical's mastermind assured Hamheads that he's got another tape in the works, but they're just gonna have to hold on to their breeches for a minute.
Miranda tweeted, "what, y'all though we'd leave Schuyler Sisters unremixed? Room Where It Happens? One Last Time? OF COURSE vol. 2!" That said, he responded to a question from one fan who needed some post-election pick-me-up by going Kanye on her: "Lemme finish vol 1 tho."

He also promised that Thursday (Nov. 10) would bring previews of two more songs from Vol. 1, "Satisfied," with Sia, Queen Latifah and Miguel and "Immigrants" with K'naan, Snow Tha Product, Riz MC and Residente.
Okay, we're dropping 2 new #HamiltonMixtape tracks tonight at or around midnight, wherever you are in the world.
They are...- Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) November 10, 2016

Queen Latifah is one of the all time great MCs. Her talents are manifold, but so proud/thrilled to hear her spitting again. https://t.co/Nx08xbNhcy
