Just like the real Thomas Jefferson who famously cultivated fruit and vegetable gardens at his home in Monticello, Daveed Diggs, who played the third president of the United States in Hamilton on Broadway, can wax poetic about produce.

Diggs, who is Jewish, recently cameoed on Sesame Street as a rapping Crunchy Carrot in a Food Rap Battle against a sweet potato. Both vegetables were vying to be Elmo's snack in the children's television show.

Backed by a green head of broccoli, Diggs as the carrot raps, “Elmo, Carrots are delicious, nutritious, and help you grow."
