Maybe knowing her rapper son, Chet Hanks, would never be the “White Boy Summer” he predicted – or at least that looks very different from what he imagined-Rita Wilson decided to show us that rapping is apparently a family affair as she “ spits some power ” as a guest passing judgment on tonight’s episode of The masked singer.

The totally impromptu performance came as the actress and producer criticized The Chameleon (which is almost certainly Wiz Khalifah). “You know, you might have a competitor Chameleon,” she said while guest judging alongside Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger. “You may not know this about me, but I can spit some power.” Encouraged by McCarthy, Wilson moved on to a verse from ‘Hip Hop Hooray’. The clip was released on YouTube on Wednesday prior to the episode.

This is actually not the first time that the Wilson performs the song Naughty By Nature. Actress and producer, actually worked with the group on a “remix” of the song last April as part of a MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. “‘Hip Hop Hooray’ is like today’s Shakespeare,” said Wilson upon the release of the remix. “I originally learned the song for one of the most fun roles I’ve ever played in the movie Boy genius. It took me a month to learn because it is so complex and nuanced; it was like training for a marathon. In a statement released by Naughty By Nature at the time, the group said they were “honored” to have Wilson recite their lyrics: “We were totally shocked that she could pick up the verses so well.”

Wilson’s flow was also impressed Masked singer judge Nick Cannon, recently returned to the Fox reality singing competition after being replaced by Niecy Nash while recovering from COVID-19. “Yo! That’s classic television,” said Cannon, who also started the show gushing about Wilson’s musical accolades. experienced singer, songwriter, actress and producer with four albums to her name. She has performed all over the world on iconic stages such as the Grand Ole Opry to the Sydney Opera House. Her latest singles ‘I Wanna Kiss Bob Dylan’ and ‘Hello World’ are available now. “
