Roxanne, Roxanne ★★½

bruh i was so hyped for this. but the love just wasnt on display...not for the music, not for the characters (and there are some GREAT ONES), not for Shante! i felt robbed of so many moments...we dont get to see Shante spit as a child, the battles are skimmed over, the performances sometimes feel like footnotes for cameos.....hope they make more biopics/stories in this vein though....foul for closing us out on that Nas cameo tho! Its Shante’s story!!
