"What’s Next?" Lin-Manuel Miranda Dropped an Epic West Wing Rap
It’s hardly a secret that politics and history are intriguing subjects to Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Pulitzer Prize-winning visionary behind Hamilton. So it makes sense that he’d be a superfan of The West Wing, Aaron Sorkin’s iconic—and award-winning—political dramedy, which ran for seven seasons beginning back in 1999.
To prove his allegiance to, and intimate knowledge of, the series, Miranda penned an epic rap entitled “What’s Next,” named for President Bartlet’s favorite query, for The West Wing Weekly podcast, which you can see below.
If you want to download the song, you can choose between an “explicit” or “clean” version. (We promise the former is more fun.)
