Lin-Manuel Throws Down a Hard Hitting Freestyle Rap in 2009 Episode of ‘Hardly Working’ by College Humor

Long before the incredible worldwide popularity of Hamilton, the great Lin-Manuel Miranda appeared in a 2009 episode of the College Humor series Hardly Working as an intern who, along with beatboxer Shockwave, was brought in by Streeter Seidell in order to answer a lyric challenge posed to him by Amir Blumenfeld and rapper UTK of Freestyle Love Supreme (founded by Miranda).

Streeter and Amir burn each other lyrically… with a little help from “Freestyle Love Supreme.”
