Lin-Manuel Miranda might have left his starring role in Hamilton, but he and his former co-star, Renée Elise Goldsberry, flipped a song from the show Monday and turned it into a pro-Hillary Clinton campaign anthem.
The duo took the play's "Ten Duel Commandments"—largely influenced by Notorious B.I.G.'s "Ten Crack Commandments"—and performed it at a Broadway fundraiser. "Watch her campaign with the man Tim Kaine/Tim Kaine in the membrane, Tim Kaine in the brain," Miranda raps with a clear nod to Cypress Hill's "Insane in the Membrane."
Miranda is no stranger to politics. Earlier this year, the Hamilton creator stopped by the nation's capital to perform a freestyle rap with President Barack Obama who was holding all the cue cards for the performer to incorporate into his lyrics. More recently, Miranda turned up during his debut hosting stint on Saturday Night Live where he updated another Hamilton track, "My Shot," to reflect his political views as he effortlessly slid in a Donald Trump diss.
We think it's pretty fair to say we know who Lin-Manuel Miranda is voting for this election. Watch the Hamilton stars perform their pro-Hillary song above and check out the track's full revised lyrics below. You can also revisit the performer's Complex cover story with Chance the Rapper right here.
