This 48-second interlude acts as a literal break for The Hamilton Mixtape. The beat was composed by one of the album's producers !llmind, over Eliza Hamilton's French counting in of the Hamilton song "Take A Break."
The interlude was originally used for one of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Ham 4 Ham shows before the Hamilton creator decided to use it for the mixtape. !llmind recalled to Billboard magazine:
"Back when we were working on The Hamilton Mixtape, this was probably late 2015, I got a phone call from Lin out of the blue. I was in the studio. He was like, 'Hey !ll, I'm doing this #Ham4Ham contest and we have this amazing dancer that's going to dance for the people who are trying to get tickets and we need a beat for it. I have this song that I want you to remix, and I really want you to make a turnt-up version of it.'
I told Lin, 'Hell yeah, I'll do it. Let me know when you need it and what you have in mind.' So we got a couple ideas going back and forth and I literally just stopped what I was doing. I spent the next three to four hours working on the track and I sent it back and he was like, 'Yo this crazy, I love it.' So he actually ended up using it for one of the #Ham4Ham episodes on YouTube. He loved it so much that he decided to put it on the mixtape."
