The well calculated plan has opened the door for The Roots to expand their fan base due to the national limelight of the show.
Today The Roots announced they are journeying into a new frontier: Broadway musicals.
The Roots will executive produce the original cast soundtrack for Hamilton, which is a hip-hop musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton.
It’s rare we get to see hip-hop mesh into the world of Broadway, but when it happens, people always come out and support.
The soundtrack will be released through Atlantic Records this fall. Pre-orders will be available as soon as the show opens its run. Do yourself a favor and march over to the Richard Rodgers Theatre on W. 46 St. Hamilton on August 7th for the opening show, you won’t regret it!
