Legendary hip-hop MC Roxanne Shanté‘s biopic will soon be released on Netflix.

A member of the infamous Juice Crew, the Queens, NewYork, native has rapped alongside with prominent figures in hip-hop such as Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace, Biz Markie, Marley Marl and Kool G Rap.

At age 14, she released “Roxanne’s Revenge,” which became a classic.

The song was a diss response to U.T.F.O.’s diss record, “Roxanne Roxanne.” Roxanne’s response pushed her into the spotlight of the hip-hop world, boosting her popularity as one of the first female rappers.

Pharrell Williams and Forest Whitaker have teamed with Netflix to produce Shanté’s biopic. “Roxanne Roxanne” is expected to premiere March 23.

The movie stars Detroit native Chanté Adams in the title role, along with Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali, Nia Long, Elvis Nolasco, Kevin Phillips and Shenell Edmonds.
