Just Call Him MC Nialler: 1D’s Niall Horan Raps Shirtless

at 2:00 pm | By

Contain the One Direction fan in your life today: a 1D member has gone shirtless on Instagram.

OK so apparently the shirtless thing happens a lot on 1D’s Instagram account (see this, this and this for recent examples).

But shirtless rapping by Niall Horan — this is a first.

Yep, that’s Niall doing a cover of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise.” (Feeling nostalgic for 1995 or Dangerous Minds yet?)

Serving as Niall’s hype man is none other than fellow 1D member Liam Payne (who unfortunately wore a tank top for this performance). And in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-him moment, Harry Styles (clothed, not rapping) can be seen zipping by the boys.

One Direction’s new album Midnight Memories drops Nov. 25. The group is due in Sydney, Australia for two shows this weekend before hitting up New Zealand for their Take Me Home tour.
