>> Good news for all those already in love with the music from Broadway's hottest ticket, Hamilton. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the record-shattering, Tony-grabbing musical announcing Thursday on Twitter that he is finally finished with Hamilton the Mixtape and pre-orders will begin Friday. The 23 song mash up attracting some of the biggest names in hip-hop, rap and pop music.

Alicia Keys, Sia, Queen Latifah, Common and John Legend, just a few who'll be putting their spin on songs from the popular musical. Miranda splashing the details all over his Twitter page. Even Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon will be on the project, which by the way is being produced by The Roots, his Tonight Show house band.

Miranda's also throwing in a few numbers that were cut from the Broadway show. The hip-hop musical based on the life of one of America's founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, has been a runaway success, winning fans across the political aisle, generations and music types. It's also largely responsible for preventing Hamilton the first US Treasury secretary, from getting the boot off the ten dollar bill.
