During a recent episode of “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon got Gina Rodriguez to share a side of herself that we haven’t seen since her breakout role as Majo Tonorio in “Filly Brown”: the rapping goddess. Fallon was quick to bring up Rodriguez’s past as a rapper during her time at NYU. Clearly no college party is complete without Rodriguez spitting some sick lines.

Jimmy Fallon got straight to business with Gina Rodriguez, asking her about someone named “Cutz.”

“This is correct,” Rodriguez told Fallon. “Cutz is my alter-ego.”

And, yes. It is spelled C-U-T-Z.

“I think that’s pretty cool like, ‘Cutz’,” Rodriguez said while laughing. “Cutz and it was me and my best friend and she was Lady Fury. Lady Fury and Cutz.”

So, what else is there to do than give Rodriguez a microphone and watch her flawlessly rap Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”

Well, if this acting thing doesn’t work out, you should totally try your hand as a rapper, Gina.
