Really, the only way to explain it is simply to show you — so below, please watch Campbell Scott (as “himself”) perform the climatic track of “Feast,” the “Hamilton”-inspired musical-within-a-show created this season for “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.”

Yes. Campbell Scott is rapping.

How did this happen? Indeed, it started with “Hamilton” — but David Bowie also had a lot to do with it.
