On Sunday, Lupita Nyong'o posted a video on her Instagram to introduce us to her rapping alter-ego named TROUBLEMAKER, who evidently has clever bars and a confident flow. As the starlet rides in the backseat of a car, she kicks a rhyme over the instrumental for Nas's classic "N.Y. State of Mind" and makes sure to big-up her Kenyan roots and consistently fresh hairstyles. She raps, Dark chocolate, plus I keep a strapped mane. Nyong'o also shouts out Disney's new movie Queen Katwe, in which she stars as the mother to Uganda's renowned chess prodigy, Phiona Mutesi. Check out her skills in the video above.
