The musical Hamilton and its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, have enjoyed a string of successes in 2016. The production picked up a Grammy Award in February. Last month, Miranda announced that a spin-off mixtape is in the works with contributions from Busta Rhymes, Chance The Rapper, and more.


Today Miranda extended his run by winning the Pulitzer Prize for drama. On Twitter, he wrote the word "grateful" as many times as the character limit allowed him to.
