EXCLUSIVE: Lupita Nyong'o Reveals Hidden Talent, Says She's 'Secretly a Rapper'

By
Lupita Nyong'o is proving she's more than an Academy Award winner and style icon.
"I'm secretly a rapper," Nyong'o told ET's Cameron Mathison while promoting her film Queen of Katwe.
Nyong'o introduced her rapper alter ego, Troublemaker, to fans over the weekend in a video posted to Instagram. In the clip, the 33-year-old actress spits a few bars over an instrumental of Nas' 1994 song, "N.Y. State of Mind."

"Mexican born, Kenya runnin' through my veins // dark chocolate, plus I keep a sharp mane," she raps.
The short black-and-white music video, filmed in the back of a car, was posted in celebration of Nyong'o reaching three million followers on Instagram.
"Don't do critics // if you're hating, please save it," she adds.
Nyong'o's latest film, which was released in theaters last week, has been gaining awards buzz.
In Queen of Katwe, the Oscar winner plays the mother of a Ugandan girl who sees her world rapidly change after being introduced to the game of chess.
