Lupita Nyong'o might be an Academy Award-winning actress now, but she – or rather, her alter ego Troublemaker – might also be a Grammy award-winning rapper soon.

After reaching three million followers on Instagram, the actress celebrated by posting a video of her rapping, well, about herself. The rap is actually a lyrical masterpiece, written by actress and lyricist Mirian A. Hyman (also known as Robyn Hood). How else would we know that the Kenyan Lancôme spokesmodel was born in Mexico? Or that she speaks four languages? Okay, we have the internet for that, but we prefer finding out from her rap verses.

There really is nothing better than hearing things straight from the source, and when the source sounds as good as Troublemaker, we think it best to just sit back and enjoy the video.

PS. Make that 3,137,510 followers and counting.
