Lupita Nyong’o has embraced her nickname, Troublemaker given to her by rapper Common.
She is famously known as the Oscar-winning actress who made black girls appreciate who they are and how they look.
She introduced her alter-ego as a rapper during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She picked the mic and none of us was ready for what was coming next. Before she started her flow she said,
I was baptized Troublemaker by Common, so I feel like it’s legit. And rapping is something I do in the car.
In her rap, she returned the favor by mentioning the queen Beyonce.
Much love to the Carters / Hov and Beyoncé / They always big me up in a big way / I’m a brown skin girl so that means a lot / Hov said we made it, got an Oscar for my props
