Lupita's Got Bars: Watch The Film Star Burn Up Nas' "NY State Of Mind" Instrumental

You know may know Lupita Nyong’o from her string of blockbuster films over the last 5 years, but what you may not know is that the budding silver screen star has quite a flow on her, as evidenced by a rather impressive display posted to Instagram yesterday morning. Here Lupita waxes joyously on her hot-streak, shouting out her forthcoming role in Disney’s Queen Of Katwe (assuring us that the check was right) and just generally being delightful, matching bars to the menacing beat of Nas‘ 1994 anthem “NY State Of Mind,” all with an ear-to-ear smile on her face.

So if you weren’t already charmed to death by Lupita Nyong’o, prepare to keel over. Watch it for yourself down below and keep an eye out for her in any one of 2017 or 2018’s most anticipated releases, including Black Panther and Star Wars: Episode VIIIQueen Of Katwe is in theaters this Thursday, September 29th, where Nyong’ stars in a biographical treatment of Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi
