This Is Us star, Chrissy Metz is a woman of many talents, but what many fans may not have known is that the actress has a knack for beatboxing.
During a stint on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Chrissy got the chance to show off her beatboxing skills.
“Let’s be very clear, my sister and my brother were very influenced by hip hop and they are older than I am. I was like, ‘I wanna make these noises with my mouth.’ I’m not saying I’m amazing, let’s be very clear,” she told the audience. Chrissy went on to tell Jimmy that while she was on Topher Grace’s podcast, he brought in a beatboxer to share the craft.
“The gentleman says, ‘we’re gonna start with just boots and cats.’ That’s eventually what it evolves to,” Chrissy says. “That’s sort of the foundation of it and just making these explosive noises, sounds through your mouth.”
That’s when Jimmy went ahead and asked Chrissy to give a little example of beatboxing. The 38-year-old was more than happy to oblige. So with a little rapping help from Tariq Trotter, of the Roots, Chrissy was ready to go.
“I’m not saying I’m great folks, just for a disclaimer,” Chrissy said. We disagree Chrissy, great job!
