'Hamilton' Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda on Phife Dawg: He Was 'So Unapologetically Himself'

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the star and creator of the hip-hop-infused Broadway musical Hamilton, tweeted several Phife lyrics, and even toasted the Queens rapper at Wednesday's (March 23) matinee show, incorporating a bit of Tribe's "Can I Kick It?" into one number. But in an interview with Billboard, he spoke about how Phife and Tribe's music has been an integral part of his life, from fistfights and yearbook covers to friends' weddings.
