As though it wasn't difficult enough before, try getting "Hamilton" tickets now.

When the Broadway musical-of-the-moment won the Grammy for best musical theater album during the 58th annual awards ceremony Monday night, composer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda expressed his thanks in the most fitting way possible: with a rap.

And it wasn't just one or two lines mixed into a spoken-word speech -- he rapped the entire thing, and gave a nod to best rap album Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar.

Watch Miranda's acceptance rap here.
