Watch Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o spit some flossy bars over the beat for Nas's "N.Y. State of Mind."
Lupita Nyong’o has an Oscar, but she clearly won't stop the hustle till she nabs a BET Hip-Hop award either. Posted on her personal Instagram, the Kenyan-Mexican actress stunts hard over one of hip-hop's classic instrumentals, "N.Y. State of Mind." Off of Nas's magnum opus Illmatic, "N.Y. State of Mind" was produced by DJ Premier back in 1992 (two years before Illmatic was released), but still gets rappers, fans, and that breed in-between extra fired up.
In the caption for the video, Lupita Nyong’o admits that the lyrics were written by her homie Robyn Hood AKA Miriam A. Hyman, but we aint mad. It ain't really a ghost situation if the credit is paid. Would you listen to a Lupita Nyong’o mixtape? Watch above, and let us know.
