"THIS IS ONE HECK OF A STORY, AND NOW THAT STORY IS A NETFLIX MOVIE"....
Oscar winner Mahershala Ali
🎶Music🎶 playing, "Roxanne, Roxanne"; Director 🎥 Michael Larnell's biopic Roxanne Roxanne tells the story 📚 of Shanté's early life and how it came to be, but believe you me it's one hell of a pedigree! Shanté is played by newcomer Chanté Adams: now how did they manage to cast a Chanté for the role of Shanté?😀
In 1984, Lolita Shanté Gooden, then a 15-year-old Queens rapper assumed the name Roxanne Shanté and released the single "Roxanne's Revenge." For those who do not know the story this release was an answer to rap group U.T.F.O's B-side and was an early rap hit!
She was revered as a battle MC hailing from Queens, New York and was definitely a fierce teenager with a lot of pubic adolence pressures, not to mention the record execs sharks snapping their fingers, hands, paws, and jaws...."Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!"
We've reached out to Lolita Shanté Gooden, aka Roxane Shanté but have not heard back from her or a representative for an One on One interview about her upcoming Netflix released "Roxanne Roxanne"! We were hoping for a DeUnequeTV exclusive! Nonetheless, we are geared up and ready for her Netflix debut March 23, 2018
