The Roots, Busta Rhymes, and Joell Ortiz have come together for "My Shot," a powerful reimagining of Hamilton's signature song off the forthcoming The Hamilton Mixtape.

Upgrading the original "My Shot," there's a heavier beat and contemporary references galore. The unhinged verse from Busta gives the song new intensity.

The mega-musical's mixtape is out December 2, and features Minnesota's own Dessa, as well as Nas, Chance the Rapper, Usher and Wiz Khalifa.
