Rita Wilson Raps on Naughty by Nature's 'Hip Hop Hooray' Remix for COVID-19 Relief - Listen!

Rita Wilson is rapping for a good cause.

Following her and her husband Tom Hanksrecovery from the coronavirus, the 63-year-old actress has helped remix Naughty by Nature’s classic “Hip Hop Hooray” to raise money for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

“Hip Hop Hooray is like modern day Shakespeare,” Rita captioned the Instagram video below on Monday (April 6). “I originally learned the song for one of the most fun roles I ever played in the film Boy Genius. It took me a month to learn because it’s so complex and nuanced; it was like training for a marathon. The rhythms and tempos are so unique and creative.”

“When I was quarantined and recovering from COVID-19 I wanted to see if I still remembered it, kind of like a brain exercise,” she continued. “To my surprise I did. I thought it would be fun to put it on my Instagram to show people I was doing okay and to make them smile.”

“When @naughtybynature4ever commented about it, I couldn’t believe it,” Rita Wilson added. “What a joy to be doing this remix with legends of the Hip-Hop world. I’m forever grateful for their generosity of spirit and for being able to raise money together for @musicares COVID-19 Relief Fund. Hit the link in my bio to listen to it and donate on YouTube! Available on all music platforms 4/10 👑.”
