Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda today unveiled the stunning new video for “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done),” a cut from the Hamilton Mixtape.
Appearing on the Today show, Miranda debuted the film by K’naan featuring Residente, Riz MC & Snow Tha Product. The video was directed by Tomás Whitmore and executive produced by Robert Rodriguez and Miranda.
The mini-film opens with the lyrics: “I got one job, two job, three when I need ’em. / I’ve got five roommates in this one studio but I never really see them.”
The video, which runs about six minutes long, chronicles a variety of immigrant experiences, including labor contributions and a poignant scene of a refugee father and his young son seeking a better life.
