Profit and Colonial Hip-Hop

Nonfiction books, in different nonbusiness genres,
have provided inspiration for successful
entrepreneurial-related insights.

But Lin-ManualMiranda’s hit Broadway
play Hamilton likely heads the list
as the most profitable idea.inspired by reading
a book for relaxation. Miranda’s sold-out musical
has taken in several dollars to date and won
yet another industry award..the Grammy.

It was while on vacation that Miranda, for leisure
purpose read an 832-page biography on Alexander Hamilton,
and began drawing upon his passion for music, comparing historical
facts with contemporary rap and hip-hop icons, tapping into major social, political, cultural  issues with a rhythmic beat.
