Here's what you're listening to today: eight hours of Miranda-made mixtapes.

Lin-Manuel Miranda—co-creator of Freestyle Love Supreme, the hip-hop improv show that recently completed its second Broadway run—hopped on Twitter New Year's Day to share eight playlists he made for the production's pre-show.

Each mix is about an hour long ("40 minutes as people enter the theater, 20 minutes on the way out..." Miranda said in another tweet), and contain a little bit of everything—rap, R&B, '80s pop. He's even included singles from Freestyle Love Supreme company members like Aneesa Folds, Wayne Brady, and Daveed Diggs, as well as numbers from neighboring Broadway cast recordings Six and Tina.

"The only mission in the pre-show playlists is to create as wild an array of music as possible: we don't know what's gonna happen in [Freestyle Love Supreme], so prepping the audience to be ready for anything is impt," Miranda continued in another tweet.

Miranda founded Freestyle Love Supreme with Thomas Kail and Anthony Veneziale. The troupe is set for an 11-city U.S. tour this year, kicking off in San Francisco January 21 and wrapping up in August in Los Angeles.
