A new rap freestyle by New Orleans MC Jay Electronica featuring Jay Z was released this week. On the track, entitled “We Made It,” Jay shout-outs Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o and the film that made her a star.

Jay Z: 

I’m on my Lupita Nyong’o,

Stuntin’ on stage after 12 Years A Slave,

This Ace of Spades look like an Oscar,

Black tux, look like a mobster.

It’s rare that Jay Z mentions any girl in his music these days besides his wife and daughter so his Lupita reference was both exciiting and surprising. Besides, what better way for Lupita to be welcomed into the hip hop community than through a rap by Jay Z?

Thanks for keeping it respectful Mr. Carter!
