President Obama and 'Hamilton' drop a freestyle rap at the White House

When President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama hosted an all-day arts extravaganza at the White House, they naturally called on the cast of Broadway's hottest show to lend a hand. Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Hamilton cast traveled to Washington for the #Bam4Ham event on Monday (Mar. 14) to school some lucky students on the arts and history.

"Alexander Hamilton! We are waiting in the East Wing for you. See you at the @whitehouse on March 14th, @HamiltonMusical. #Bam4Ham," she captioned the pic of the cast hanging out with President Obama backstage at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City.

Although FLOTUS shared some of the best moments from the day on her Instagram, one of the highlight's from the trip came when the musical's creator and POTUS took the stage together in the Rose Garden.

"This is some serious business right here," President Obama quipped to the viewers in the Rose Garden in the clip posted on Facebook. "It must be a little nerve-wracking. I hope I don't drop these cards."

During the performance, President Obama took a break from being the leader of the free world to give Lin-Manuel a hand during the freestyle rap. As POTUS held up the cards with words such as "Constitution" "POTUS" and even "Sunny and Bo," the 36-year-old star rapped over a single drum beat.

After blowing the president away, Lin-Manuel took to his Twitter to share his excitement about the day.

"Writers love symmetry. Profound thanks to @whitehouse for letting us finish the story at their home--7years after starting."
