Royce Da 5’9″, Joyner Lucas and Black Thought Appear on ‘Wrote My Way Out’ Remix
Lin-Manuel Miranda enlisted the aforementioned rap trifecta for the remix of “Wrote My Way Out.” The original version featured Nas, Dave East and Aloe Blacc so he had to take it to another level for the remix.
The remix is produced by !llmind who provided a thunderous beat, dramatic piano and orchestral strings for the lyricists to spit over. On the song Royce, Lucas and Thought detail how their rough upbringings inspired them to become great poets.
All three emcees delivered great bars, but Thought had the standout verse as he chronicles his struggles and using a pad and a pen to find his way of the hood.
"I feel like I wrote my way up out of a burning building / To earning millions in this world of soldiers and civilians / I burn the oil every night as I return to brilliance / Under the gun, I'm under pressure, under surveillance," he raps.
The "Wrote My Way Out" remix is part of Lin-Manuel Miranda's online music series "Hamildrop." Keep them coming!
