Rita Moreno was invited this year to give the commencement speech at Berklee. As per usual with graduation speeches, Moreno gave inspirational words towards the students.

The Puerto Rican actress and singer shared a monologue from Terrence McNally’s play Master Class. The speech then took an unexpected turn and the 84-year-old began to rap Hamilton-inspired rhymes.

“Playin’ the reeds, the deeds, they figure into your success. Hard work and discipline, I’ll mention. You must have the audacity, the pluck, the grit, the perspicacity... Your talent may be terrific, your writing prolific, but do you have the motivation to use your creation for this generation,” rapped Moreno.

She continued, “Speak truth to power, infuse the news—there are other views to choose.”

Fellow Puerto Rican, Lin-Manuel Miranda, inspired the one-of-a-kind commencement speech. “Lin caused this crime of mine, so I read him his Miranda rights. I’m speakin’ to that other Puerto Rican, so I take flight. Yo, I am history.”

Someone should’ve given Rita a mic to drop because she killed it!
