Gina Rodriguez raps Nicki Minaj's Super Bass

Posted on


Turns out Riz Ahmed isn’t the only TV star with a rapping alter-ego.

During Gina Rodriguez’s Monday night appearance on The Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon revealed that Rodriguez would rap under the name “Cutz” while she was in college. As usual, Fallon had a spare microphone on hand, and invited her to perform. After noting that it was “a dream come true” to rap alongside The Roots, Rodriguez launched into a pitch-perfect version of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” 

“That’s my ode to Nicki,” Rodriguez said when she was finished. “I love you girl. You be rockin’ it. Work!”
