Black Panther star Letitia Wright recently showed off her skills in rapping. The actress also decided to call herself MC Underbite.

Wright's co-star, Lupita Nyong'o, shared a video of the two of them rapping to Robyn Hood's beat. Nyong'o referred to herself as Troublemaker in the two-minute video.

Last week, the award-winning actress also uploaded a clip of Wright leading a Wakandan cypher with her other cast mates. Nyong'o said that Underbite was "born" on Friday.

Letitia Wright Talks About Her 'Black Panther' Role

Wright plays the role of Shuri in Black Panther. The 24-year-old opened up about her character and shared what it was like portraying a smart woman in the film.

"When I realized the character I was going out for I found out that eventually she becomes the Black Panther [in the comics]. So I thought I had to go in being really serious. You know, no games, all serious, no messing around. And then yeah, like Ryan [Coogler] just really wanted it to be like really light and positive," said Wright.

When asked what she wants Shuri to do in the near future, Wright said that she wants her character to be able to use her intelligence to help Wakanda and those in need. The actress joked that she wants to help out Spider-Man and dine with Captain America in the Marvel Universe.

Lupita Nyong'o's Role

Nyong'o, on the other hand, plays the role of Nakia, a warrior. The actress described her character as someone who has a very quiet power. She also said that Nakia is quite adaptable, and she is also like a chameleon.

"She's physically and mentally strong and a very sharp woman. I love that about her; I love the fact that she has a wild independence. She's a lone wolf, but at the same time, she's extremely loyal to her country, and of course, in her own special way, to her king," said Nyong'o.

Other cast members of Black Panther include Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Andy Serkis as Klaw, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, and Sterling K. Brown as N'Jobu.
