Hip-hop can be clever and expressive. Lin-Manuel Miranda definitely is both clever and expressive. In fact, he can  be positively brilliant.

Hamilton, a Broadway transfer from The Public now at the Richard Rodgers Theater, is a historical hip-hop musical by Miranda. In it, the Founding Father is seen as fulfilling the American dream, as an an ambitious, self-taught immigrant. Alexander Hamilton’s vision for his adopted land was to help create its financial system and sponsor its Constitution and support a strong federal government.
