Lupita Nyong’o is making the media rounds ahead of the release of Little Monsters which drops on Hulu on Friday, October 11. During her most recent media run, Lupita stopped by The Tonight Show to chop it up with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots.
During her appearance, the Us and Rise of Skywalker star revealed her alter-ego “Troublemaker” to the national audience and revealed a hidden talent.
As it turns out, along with being a standout actress Lupita can also spit some bars on the mic.
To showcase her skills as an emcee, she was joined by The Roots to drop a quick freestyle after going into full character with some sunglasses.
Not too shabby.
Little Monsters, meanwhile, is a horror-romance film which premiered at Sundance Film Festival back in January and is now set to make its Hulu debut. We’ll have to see if the project continues Nyong’o’s impressive run on the silver screen.
