But Lewis decided to flip the lyrics.

While everyone else is rapping about their obsession for The D, the actress used the wildly popular challenge to promote her upcoming memoir, “The Mother of Black Hollywood.”

“I hear there’s a video going around about the Big D and you know momma loves herself some Big D,” she said with D4L’s “Scotty” instrumental on loop in the background. “There’s something more important going on,” she continued before beginning her freestyle.

“I hit a high note for my book and now you all woke for my book…. you bi**hes better run for my book.” she said.

Peep her Instgram post below.

Lewis has carved an industry for herself in Hollywood by playing moms in titles like “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and “Baggage Claim,” “Think Like A Man,” “Panther,” “Dead Presidents” and “The Preacher’s Wife.” On “That’s So Raven,” she played Raven’s psychic grandmother. Ironically, in real life, Lewis has no children.

“I’ve played a couple of doctors, a couple of lawyers. They call me the Black mother of Hollywood,” Lewis once said in an interview with The Tom Joyner Morning Show.
