From the producers of Fruitvale Station and Dope comes Netflix’s new biopic unpacking the life of New York rapper Roxanne Shanté.

A Sundance favourite, Roxanne Roxanne follows the turbulent life of the 14-year-old Queens battle MC, set in the early 1980s. Shanté made a name for herself as part of the Juice Crew collective, breaking through with her one-take freestyle response to a derogatory UTFO single dubbed “Roxanne Roxanne.”

Starring Mahershala Ali, Nia Long, Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock (Adam Horovitz) and introducing Chanté Adams, the film will land on Netflix March 23. 

Pharrell Williams, Mimi Valdes, and Forest Whitaker all co-produced, so expect one heck of a soundtrack. Read more…
