Gwyneth Paltrow Raps N.W.A’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’

JPI / FilmMagic

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s friendship with Jay-Z is starting to rub off on her. The actress and mother showed off her rapping skills, spitting a verse from N.W.A.‘s ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ while taping ‘The Graham Norton Show’ across the pond.

When asked about her secret love for “’90s hip-hop,” Paltrow not only fessed up to it, but proved her dedication by rapping Ice Cube‘s famous verse from the track. “Ice Cube, I’d like to say that I’m a crazy mutha from around the way,” she rapped over an impromptu beat-boxing session. The Oscar winner also called the controversial rap group’s 1988 album “classic.”

Paltrow is, of course, no stranger to hip-hop music. She famously debuted Shazzazz, her ’80s rap duo with funnyman Jimmy Fallon, on his late night talk show in 2010, and performed with Cee Lo Green during this year’s Grammy Awards, helping him sing through his Billboard smash ‘F— You.’ She’s also been showing off her singing skills on Fox’s hit show ‘Glee,’ where she has a recurring roll as a substitute teacher. The actress also starred as a country singer in the film ‘Country Strong.’

Despite her obvious musical talent, the 38-year old hasn’t been in the studio working on a solo project. “I haven’t made my own music yet,” she said.
