The Netflix Film "Life is a Battle" The Roxanne Shante Story

If you are a true hip-hop fan, then you know about the female MCs that made the national scene.  Netflix just released a trailer for the new film rapper Roxanne Shante, entitled Roxanne, Roxanne,  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 Shanté" 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 of the Queensbridge Projects in NYC.  

Chanté Adams, who stars as Roxanne Shanté, won the 2017 Sundance Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Performance.

For more information check out the Netflix website.  Also, follow Roxanne Shante on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  

The film is WRITTEN & DIRECTED BY | Michael Larnell. CAST | Chanté Adams, Nia Long, Mahershala Ali, Elvis Nolasco, Kevin Phillips, Shenell Edmonds, Adam Horovitz. PRODUCERS | Nina Yang Bongiovi, Mimi Valdes, Forest Whitaker and Pharrell Williams. EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS | Michael Y. Chow, Michael Shen and Roxanne Shanté
