As if you needed even more reason to fall in love with one of Hollywood’s hottest actresses, Lupita Nyong’o. The Oscar-winning actress posted a quick clip on IG which shows the Mexican born Kenyan (yes you read that right) kick a freestyle to Nas’ classic cut “New York State Of Mind.”
Presenting herself as her rap alter ego TROUBLEMAKER, she dropped some crunchy bars over the Premo instrumental kicking it off with, “Mexican-born Kenya running through my veins/ Dark chocolate plus I keep a sharp mane/Lancome fresh-face, looking tailor-made/ Disney on the books so you know I stay paid/ Next stop Katwe rocking out with David/ Don’t do critics if you’re hating please save it.”
While she’s admitted to having had fantasies of being a rapper in the past and some might feel this is Lupita’s attempt to branch out into the Hip-Hop music industry, it’s really only her way of celebrating hitting 3 million followers on her IG account.
Either way it’s good to see one of our favorite actresses show she’s more than capable of rocking the mic at any given moment.
