Before Nicki Minaj, Foxxy Brown, or even Lil’ Kim, there was Roxanne Shante. Roxanne broke into a male dominated rap world at the young age of 14-years old to become one of the most well known rappers in the game during the early, early hip-hop years. Shante was one of the first female rap artist to break the local chains and hit the mainstream. Shante’s name and story is one that is usually skipped over when people speak about hip-hop groundbreaking pioneers. I don’t believe that was done personally. I think people genuinely forgot about Roxanne for some reason. But, finally, her incredible journey and story will be told. Roxanne Roxanne stars Chante Adams, Nia Long, and Mahershala Ali. The movie is coming to Netflix March 23, 2018. Check out a clip from the movie below:
