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.

"It's fascinating to see this mid-2000s Eastern European drama -motif used to tell the story of a teen rapper in the 1980s and because of that being the style it manages to hop over some uncomfortable biography tropes (while still indulging in several). It showcases a tact you don't expect with hip hop culture showcased in American films. The film doesn't necessarily do anything much to excite but hey, that's kind of cool here."
