After weeks of heavy promotion and a few leaks, you can finally listen to the official Hamilton Mixtape.

Lin-Manuel Miranda released the soundtrack and LP for the hit broadway musical.

There are 23 tracks which feature guest appearances from some of the biggest names in music including Nas, Ja Rule, Wiz Khalifa, Common, Miguel and Chance the Rapper, plus three songs from the musical itself.

The album also includes demos for tracks that never made it onto the stage, including 'Cabinet Battle 3', where Hamilton and George Washington's advisers debate a proposal to end slavery.

The album highlights quite how much Miranda was influenced by pop culture - and how they're turning up for him on the album.

Regina Spektor and Ben Folds perform one version of the father/daughter address for 'Dear Theodosia', before Chance the Rapper closes the album with it, turning it into a beautiful lullaby.

Fans can stream the album now on iTunes.
