At the age of 14, Lolita "Roxanne Shante" 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.Get ready for ROXANNE ROXANNE, a new Netflix Original Film from the producers of "Fruitvale Station" and "Dope", written/directed by Michael Larnell and starring Mahershala Ali, Nia Long and introducing Chanté Adams.
