Lupita Nyong’o may be an Oscar-winning actress, but she also wants to let you know that she has many other talents, too.

To celebrate reaching 3 million followers on Instagram, the actress (or, rather, her alter ego “Troublemaker”) recently uploaded a video in which she can be seen rapping out all the things she’s accomplished to the beat of Nas’ “New York State of Mind.” 

“Mexican born, Kenya running through my veins. Dark chocolate, plus I keep a sharp mane,” she starts off. She then makes a reference to her newest film, Queen of Katwe, which is out in theaters now. “Lancôme, fresh face. Looking tailor made. Disney on the books so you know I stay paid.”
