    Let's Take A Moment To Obsess About Beyoncé's Rap In "Carmen: A Hip Hopera"

    Bey has basically been rhyming tougher than your favorite rapper since the beginning of her career.

    Long before Beyoncé was swinging on a chaise in her ultra sexy "Partition" video...

    ...and years before she was sneezing on the "Yoncé" beat...

    ...she played the lead character, Carmen Jones, in the 2001 made-for-MTV movie Carmen: A Hip Hopera.

    In her first scene, she catches everyone's eye.

    There's a lot of adoration and a smidgeon of hateration happening in the bar.

    And then, the sing-rap begins.

    Basically, Beyoncé spits harder than your favorite rapper, and we're awaiting an all-rap album from the Queen.

    Because she was obviously born to rock the mic in more ways than just giving us epic vocals.
