BLACK PANTHER’S Letitia Wright MC’ing in Her Shuri Costume Is the Best Thing

Everybody loves Black Panther. The  Marvel movie has been breaking records left, right, and center, with critics and fans alike showering praise on the groundbreaking film. One of the movie’s breakout stars is undoubtedly Letitia Wright, whose portrayal of T’Challa’s super smart sister Shuri was one of the highlights of an already amazing film. Wright didn’t just kill it on the screen but off it too, as Lupita Nyong’o has been sharing on her Twitter account. She shared a video of Wright MC’ing on the set of Black Panther while in costume, gaining her the moniker “Baby Underbite.”

We’re so grateful to Nyong’o for sharing this unabashed joy with us, especially as everyone’s favorite vegetarian: M’Baku, a.k.a. Winston Duke, was providing Baby Underbite with her beats. And it keeps getting better: the wonderful Angela Bassett and Danai Gurira acted as her hype-women! This behind the scenes Black Panther jam is honestly one of the best things we’ve seen all year, and we cannot wait for Nyong’o to (hopefully) leak MC Baby Underbite’s mixtape.

We loved checking out Wright’s bars and can’t wait to see what magical talents she reveals next. What was your favorite line from her verse? Loved Shuri in Black Panther? Just want to see what Letitia does next? Let us know below.
