Lupita Nyong’o has just dropped one of the most unexpected rap tracks of 2019 on her Instagram, starring her Us co-stars.
The black and white clip sees Nyong’o and co-star Winston Duke sitting in the car from the film, with Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex, who play their children, in the newly released film. The “Wilson family” perform the original track with lyrics by Robyn Hood of Truth Teller Productions and music created by Chris Herbie Holland.
Like Peele’s film, the track focuses on ideas of duality and the doppelgängers. Despite the sinister beat and haunting lyrics, the cast members can’t help but crack a smile.
Check out the lyrics below.
It’s Jason, baby boy out the crew
Mask on deck, if you see me I’m comin’ for you.
Zora stay ready, chopping the track like a machete (Sushi)
My duality comes at night
My Red Umbrae will give you a fright (Sushi)
I will make ya, cut and shake ya,
Five on it
All smoke no vapors, it feels real
I play Adelaide
You’re your own worst enemy
Gabe’s on deck if you wanna get crazy
Robin Hood gives me low bars
You know my Red ain’t lazy
Watch yourself with that nonsense
Us is killing it, no contest
Wilson’s got them scissors
And you know we’ll make you quiver
’cause it’s us (yeah)
Red’s got them scissors
Baby don’t you make a fuss!
