Published: Friday 23rd Feb 2018 by David

Netflix continues to create and celebrate diverse content this year.

Its latest endeavour? The Roxanne Shante biopic.

Named ‘Roxanne Roxanne‘ the movie tells the true tale of the lyricist’s ascent to glory on the wings of a dark but inspiring journey which saw her battle predators, poverty and societal pushbacks to become one of Hip-Hop’s most celebrated women.

Nia Long and Mahershala Ali support Chante Adams as she takes on its leading role as well as Pharrell Williams…one of the movie’s producers.

March 23rd marks the spot.

Moving stuff.

    By the way, I can see Netflix eventually going to make the movie theaters suffer like they did Blockbuster.

    I am HERE. FOR. THIS.

    Roxanne Shante was rap’s first queen!

    The Roxanne’s Revenge track is fire. Roxanne Shante also had a big hit with Rick James in the late 80s called Loosey’s Rap.

    And for the whippersnappers around here, there were about a million Roxanne records out in the mid-80s after UTFO hit with Roxanne Roxanne.
