Watch ‘Black Panther’s’ Letitia Wright Freestyling in Costume on Set
Last week, Lupita Nyong'o introduced the world to MC Underbite, also known as Letitia Wright from Black Panther. In a video posted on Nyong'o's Twitter page, the actress shared a Black Panther-inspired freestyle. Now, we get to see that Wright has actually been rapping since the movie was being filmed.
On Friday (Feb. 23), Nyong'o once again shared a video of Wright freestyling, but this time the actress was in costume, on set. With actor Winston Duke beatboxing at her side, Wright spits her bars in her Shuri outfit. "We're not scared of you/I mean scared of the truth/Scared of the truth that's inside of you," she raps.
Since it's release earlier this month, Black Panther has smashed box office records, grossing $242 million in North America. Earlier this week, director Ryan Coogler wrote a letter to fans thanking them for their support.
"I am struggling to find the words to express my gratitude at this moment, but I will try," Coogler said Tuesday in his letter addressed to moviegoers. "Filmmaking is a team sport. And our team was made up [of] amazing people from all over the world who believed in this story. Deep down we all hoped that people would come to see a film about a fictional country on the continent of Africa, made up of a cast of people of African descent."
"Thank you for giving our team of filmmakers the greatest gift: The opportunity to share this film, that we poured our hearts and souls into, with you," Coogler continued after more thanks for fans and critics who praised the film and before mentioning a line from the film, "Wakanda Forever," he continued.
