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.
