“If we assume the debts the union gets,

A new line of credit, a financial diuretic.

How do you not get it?

If we’re aggressive and competitive, the union gets a boost.

You’d rather give it a sedative?”

That’s it! The mic is hot and it has officially been dropped! Hashtag bars.

These hot fire lines came straight from the man on the $10 bill himself – Alexander Hamilton. Well, sort of. They actually came from an actor/playwright named Lin-Manuel Miranda while he played Hamilton in his successful Broadway musical named after the founding father.

But this got us thinking: Which U.S. presidents could take the hip-hop musical treatment and give us the best results? There are plenty who have what it takes – rags-to-riches stories, scandals, and tragedy – but these are the best ones. Feel free to let us know who else could work and and drop a quick 16 in the comments if you feel up to it.

Note: The current commander-in-chief isn’t included because there’s already a smorgasbord of “Barack Obama Rap” videos on the internet.
