Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton fame has been providing fans with some stellar tracks inspired by his musical for a while now, but the latest #Hamildrop might be one of the most interesting yet.
After teasing a new song from Mobb Deep featuring a posthumous appearance from Prodigy, Lin-Manuel has shared "Boom Goes the Cannon." Inspired by Hamilton, which itself quoted Mobb Deep's classic "Shook Ones Part II," is the first song to feature Prodigy since his death on June 20, 2017.
Havoc previously revealed he was working on a new Mobb Deep album for release later this year, telling MSNBC's The Beat that he was "just trying to keep the legacy alive" with the currently untitled new record. "We deserve that, and I'm actually currently working on the new album in conjunction with the family. It'll be out there pretty soon. before the end of the year it'll be out."
Over on Twitter, Lin-Manuel shared his disbelief at the track merely existing. It's been a long journey to get this out, as evidenced by its release date nearing the one year anniversary of Prodigy's death.
