Of course “The Birth Of Hip Hop” is a perfect story. Of course Questlove is a perfect person to narrate.

HOWEVER….

Any Drunk History fan knows the unwritten rules of the show.

1. There has to be AT LEAST one moment in when the narrator thinks they are going to puke.
2. One moment when they are incoherent.
3. One moment when there is some sort of wardrobe malfunction
AND ABOVE ALL ELSE, THEY ARE DRINKING SOMETHING STRONGER THAN COOK’S.

THIS is the bar Quest…not the Trader Joe’s Prosecco aisle. smh.

The TWENTY: Hamilton

So there seem to be 3 camps of people when it comes to the Broadway hit Hamilton: An American Musical – Those who are obsessed with it, those who have friends who are obsessed – or they’ve kind of heard about it, but haven’t really checked it out, and those who are still in the dark. I’m Parker – I belong to that first group, and I’m here to clear up some of the mystery behind Hamilton’s popularity.

Maybe you’re trying to figure out who this Lin-Manuel Miranda guy is – he’s been popping up on The Tonight Show, Drunk History, Carpool Karaoke, Inside Amy Schumer – and EVERYONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHO HE IS. Because never in the history of Broadway theater has a musical crossed into the mainstream in the way that Hamilton has! Not even Cats, although it probably came the closest.

So, let’s start at the beginning – literally. This is the first song Lin wrote after reading an Alexander Hamilton biography by Ron Chernow. He took it to an open mic night at the White House in 2009, where he debuted it for President Obama and the First Lady – and sang all the roles himself.

SO MUCH HAMILTON behind this link!
