Lupita got bars.

Lupita Nyong’o shared a video of herself rapping in the backseat of a car and it was wonderful.

She posted the video to celebrate her reaching 3 million followers on Instagram and her new Disney film, "Queen of Katwe."

Nyong'o showed off her talent and sense of humor when she rhymed over Nas’ instrumental to his classic hit “New York State of Mind.”She also named her rapping alter ego, “Troublemaker.”

During the 50-second clip, she reminds the world she was born in Mexico, was raised by Kenyan parents, and speaks four different languages. Lupita also gave a shout out to Lancôme cosmetics for keeping her face fresh, and to Disney for keeping the money flowing in.


While we all know Lupita Nyong’o isn’t dropping her acting career anytime soon, it was fun to see the star let loose a bit, acknowledge her fans and accomplishments while dropping a few bars over a classic hip-hop beat.
