Theoretically, it’s possible that there are people out there who are tired of listening to the official cast recording of Hamilton on repeat. If for some inconceivable reason you’re one of those people — or, more likely, you just can’t get enough of the smash Broadway show — you’re in luck, as Lin-Manuel Miranda has announced a Hamilton mixtape. The tape will feature a who’s-who of superstar rappers and musicians reworking the musical’s songs, and Miranda revealed the superstar-packed tracklist on Twitter today.

The Roots are all over this thing, including collaborations with Busta Rhymes, Joell Ortiz, and Nate Ruess (“My Shot [Rise Up Remix]”); Common and Ingrid Michaelson (“Who Tells Your Stroy”); and even their Tonight Show boss Jimmy Fallon (“You’ll Be Back”). There are also appearances by Chance the Rapper, Francis and the Lights, Regina Spektor, Ben Folds, Nas, Sia, Miguel, and — wait for it — Queen Latifah. All this and the collection features some of Miranda’s original Hamilton demos, too.

Though the mixtape is made up of Hamilton songs, Black Thought of The Roots told EW the tape isn’t meant to be compared to the original soundtrack. “You can expect [the mixtape] to be as musically dynamic and to include as wide a range of inspirations as the [show],” he said. “But we’re not putting this out for comparison’s sake… they both have a life of their own.”

The Hamilton Mixtape is available for pre-order tomorrow and is expected to drop on or around December 2nd. Check out Miranda’s tweets followed by the full tracklist below.
