Lupita Nyongo’s alter ego rapper Troublemaker is back at it again! And this time she brought her friend MC Underbite with her to celebrate th release of Black Panther.
On Friday, to celebrate the wide release premiere of Marvel film, Black Panther stars Nyong’o and Letitia Wright shared a freestyle rap about Black Panther. Nyong’o posted the video on her Twitter account.
The short video included verses from both actresses. Nyong’o bars included mentioned the success of the latest Marvel film and The River tribe, which is the tribe her Black Panther character Nakia comes from. Wright included mentions of Vibranium, which is the element used to make many of the weapons and technology her character Shuri create, and Black Panther villain Killmonger. The inspiration for their freestyle came from rapper and actress Robyn Hood, who own rap appears after the actresses’ verses and wrote Nyong’o’s rap. Robyn Hood’s bars highlight the many great female characters in the film.
While the video is the debut of Wright’s MC Underbite, Troublemaker has appeared before. Nyongo’o introduced the alter ego when she got 3 million followers on Instagram while promoting 2016 film Queen of Katwe. The actress also had Robyn Hood write those lyrics.
The freestyle is not the only music you can listen to while celebrating Black Panther’s release. The soundtrack, which was curated by Kendrick Lamar, has an album full of tracks you can listen to on your way to the film. Nyong’o and Wright just gave us all a little bonus track.
Black Panther is out in theaters February 16, 2018.
