Robot. Corn maze. Harry Potter.

There is no sensible connection between the three extremely random nouns, yet Lin-Manuel Miranda can string them together like poetry.

Miranda, best known as the creator of the Broadway smash 'Hamilton,' is an expert freestyle rapper. His skills were put to the test on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night.

The so-called "Wheel of Freestyle" skit was a riff off of Jimmy Fallon's popular "Wheel of Musical Impressions" bit.

Three words would appear at random, leaving Miranda just seconds to come up with a compelling narrative.

But wait! There's more.

Miranda was competing against Tariq Trotter of Fallon's house band The Roots, who Miranda - unbelievably - says is the better freestyler.
