The 33-year-old Oscar-winning actress is co-star of the new movie Queen of Katwe.

Lupita took to her Instagram account to celebrate reaching three million followers by sharing a video of herself slaying a rap verse as her alter ego “Troublemaker.” The lyrics reflected her life and were rapped over Nas‘ song “N.Y. State of Mind.”

“Mexican born, Kenya running through my veins. Dark chocolate, plus I keep a sharp mane. Lancôme fresh-faced, looking tailor-made. Disney on the books, so you know I stay paid. Next stop Katwe, rocking out with David. Don’t do critics — if you’re hating, please save it,” Lupita rapped.
