Chance the Rapper, Sia, Usher, Ben Folds, Busta Rhymes, Queen Latifah and Regina Spektor are all reportedly set to appear on the Mixtape, which is slated for release sometime this fall.

Miranda announced the project back in October with a tweet, "So the show is done. Cast album is out. Now we begin planning The Hamilton Mixtape. Remixes & Covers & Inspired bys. FOR REAL. GET READY."
