Lin-Manuel Miranda's The Hamilton Mixtape was one of the most star-studded projects of last year, and its main highlight is hands down "Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)." The Broadway heavyweight debuted the official video on the TODAY show Wednesday morning, which features K'naan, Snow Tha Product, Riz MC (a.k.a. The Night of actor Riz Ahmed) and Residente.
The rappers come from four different backgrounds: Somali Canadian, Mexican-American, British Pakistani and Puerto Rican, respectively. Yet they all share the same plight of making sure their culture is properly represented among the whitewashing of nations that would rather brutally push them away instead of support the community. The "Immigrants" video opens with a group listening to a radio station where an anchor discusses border security. “It’s really astonishing that in a country founded by immigrants, ‘immigrant’ has somehow become a bad word," he states on the fuzzy report.
