Looks like One Direction's gone gangsta!

OK, maybe not so much, but Niall Horan did bust out a few verses from Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise." The shirtless, sunglass-wearing boy-bander assumed his "MC Nialler" rap persona in an Instagram video posted Thursday, Oct. 3. Liam Payne got in on the backstage action, too, throwing up some solid "Uhs" and hand gestures.

MC Nialler also made an appearance onstage in Melbourne, Australia. The band Instagrammed a picture of the Irish cutie wearing his precious attempt at a rapper's ensemble: a New York Yankees cap, sunglasses (while inside), a T-shirt and slightly-slouchy pants.

He's getting in the game, y'all. When a 1D fan asked Niall if he was "gonna collab with Kanye West anytime soon," he tweeted back, "yeh I was thinkin about!  Just waitin t hear back from kanye himself !"

Your move, Yeezus. That said, MC Nialler isn't the only One Direction boy with some special talents. Another recent 1D Instagram video shows Liam aka "Twinkle Toes" doing some snazzy moves of his own.

True talent knows no genre!
