Shante, the microphone grand mistress. You know her as “a pioneer, like Lola Falana, with a name, that stands big like Madonna.” The Queen from Queens is an emcee that needs no introduction. There was a time, though, where Lolita Shante Gooden wasn’t a household name. Netflix and I am OTHER (Pharrell’s creative collective) are bringing you the story of the legendary Roxanne Shante.
March 23rd, Netflix is bringing you the newest biopic, “Roxanne, Roxanne”. Not only are Forest Whittaker and Pharrell involved in the production, but RZA is in charge of the music. The film stars Mahershala Ali (who you’ve no doubt heard us talk about as Cornell on Luke Cage), Nia Long (yep, Lisa from the Fresh Prince), and newcomer Chante Adams as Roxanne.
You think you know the story because it played out on wax. I’d say unless you are Roxanne, you had better watch this film to find out for real. I know the whole Mr. Throwback Thursday crew will be watching this one the day it drops. You guys check it out and let us know what you think. Either leave us a comment or click the “Hit Us Up” button to the right and leave us a voice message. Check the trailer below, and until next time……keep it classic and always remember, New School Stale, Old School Fresh.
