The West Wing Weekly /

So, we’re already well aware that Lin-Manuel Miranda is a multi-talented human who can rap about Harry Potter, Hillary Clinton, and Full House like a badass. And hey, turns out he can draw inspiration from one of his biggest influencers in television and turn it into a rap like we could never have seen coming!

No kidding;  Miranda wrote a rap about The West Wing, and basically his coolness-level has bypassed anything we could ever imagine.

Whether or not you’re a West Wing fan or a rap aficionado is irrelevant (although Miranda is both), because the song features a kick ass beat by Hrishikesh Hirway, and the lyrics are hilarious. And after hearing it once, you’ll find yourself learning the words.

Are you ready for this? No, really. This requires 100% of your attention for the full effect!

Yup, that just happened. Wasn’t it wonderful? It actually cured our case of the Mondays!

We can probably all agree that 2017 is going to be another stellar year for this guy, because he’s a genuine gift to the world of music, film, television, and rap. Sending all the love to Lin-Manuel Miranda, today and every day.

Thanks for being YOU, and for planting “yo-yo ma” into our heads on this fine Monday.
