Actor Daniel J. Watts (Hamilton, After Midnight, Motown) was the featured guest at the June 8 #Ham4Ham, paying tribute to three-time World Champion boxer (and onetime Broadway musical star) Muhammad Ali with an original rap.

The rap, which recounts Ali's career, makes no mention of his Broadway appearance as the star of the short-lived 1969 musical Buck White.

#Ham4Ham is a series of impromptu concerts given each Wednesday on the steps of the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where Hamilton is playing, to entertain people waiting on the discount lottery line.
