  • Roxanne Roxanne | Official Trailer Posted on 24 February 2018

    Life is a battle. In the early 1980s, the most feared battle MC in Queens, New York, was a fierce teenage girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders. At the age of 14, Lolita "Roxanne Shante" Gooden was well on her way to becoming a Hip-Hop legend as she hustled to provide for her family while defending herself from the dangers of the streets. Get ready for ROXANNE ROXANNE, a new Netflix Original Film from the producers of "Fruitvale Station" and "Dope", written/directed by Michael Larnell and starring Mahershala Ali, Nia Long and introducing Chanté Adams. Streaming only on Netflix March 23rd.


    “Roxanne Roxanne” premiered at Sundance last week, and sold for $3 million. It’s another hip-hop biopic in the footsteps of “Straight Outta Compton,” but instead of the story of a West Coast gangsta rap group, it’s the story of a 15-year-old girl named Roxanne Shante who started the biggest rap beef war in history.
