Lupita Nyong'o Raps to Nas Song and Reveals Her Alter Ego's Name

By
Lupita Nyong'o’s dreams of being a rapper are coming to life.
The Oscar winner posted a professionally done video to Instagram in celebration of garnering 3 million followers, and raps original lyrics to the beat of Nas' "New York State of Mind."
"Introducing my alter ego TROUBLEMAKER," Nyong'o captioned the video.
The 33-year-old actress didn't miss a beat as she spat rhymes about her birthplace of Mexico and homeland of Kenya, promoted her upcoming movie Queen of Katwe, called out her humanitarian work as a Wildaid global elephant ambassador and even dropped a line about her Lancome endorsement deal. She also bragged about speaking four different languages and making the big bucks.
"Mexican-born Kenya running through my veins/ Dark chocolate plus I keep a sharp mane," she rapped while in the back of a car. "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."
"Ambassador for elephants trying to save the planet," she continued. "I’m working on my master plan stunting in a hammock."

Actress Miriam A. Hyman wrote the lyrics for Nyong'o, while pal Katelyn Manley directed the video.
Nyong'o debuted her rap skills to ET earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival. "I'm secretly a rapper," she quipped. "It's so secret I don't even know it."
She added, "I fantasize about being a rapper all the time."
