It's not the first time Leo has shown off his rapping skills. The actor made headlines in 2014 when he was spotted rapping along to A Tribe Called Quest's 'Scenario' with his 'Django Unchained' co-star Jamie Foxx. 

They were attending a birthday party in West Hollywood for club owner Richie Akiva. 

Jamie later talked about the moment at the American Black Film Festival Honors event in 2020. 

"I’m just going to be honest — we’ve partied in some situations where no cell phones were allowed and I watched him rap ‘Scenario'," People quoted him as saying.
