Watch the Trailer for Roxanne Shante's New Biopic 'Roxanne Roxanne'

Roxanne Roxanne

The must-watch movie features a slew of Hollywood heavyweights from Nia Long to Academy Award victor Mahershala Ali.

Last year, I spoke to Wu Tang Clan founder RZA, who composed the music for ROXANNE ROXANNE, a film that got some attention at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival for Chanté Adams' performance as pioneering hip-hop star Roxanne Shanté in the film. Roxanne Shanté is one of the executive producers.

On Thursday, Netflix released a preview of the film, which depicts the life of the artist during her upbringing in New York City's Queensbridge Projects and coming of age as a rapper. Today (Feb. 22), Netflix shared the first trailer for Roxanne Roxanne, the legendary rapper Roxanne Shante's biopic.

The film's line up is like the Juice Crew of actors with Nia Long, Mahershala Ali and more.

Written and directed by Michael Larnell and produced by Pharrell Williams and Forest Whitaker, Roxanne, Roxanne will be available to stream on Netflix March 23.
