PHN FemCee-Vember Edition | Roxanne Shanté- Roxanne's Revenge, Have a Nice Day, Loosey's Rap [SONGS]

Roxanne Shanté

Roxanne Shanté (born Lolita Shanté Gooden; November 9, 1969) is an American Hip hop pioneer. Born and raised in the Queensbridge Projects of Queens, New York City, Shanté first gained attention through the Roxanne Wars and her association with the Juice Crew.

As an MC, Shanté was renowned for an extraordinary ability to freestyle (improvise) entire songs. "Roxanne’s Revenge" was an example, reportedly written as it was recorded—in one take. However, the original version of the song was rerecorded after UTFO sued over the usage of its original backing track; the new version featured slightly different music with less profanity. People are most familiar with this version, which appears on the original 12-inch single released in 1984, with the original on the A-side. In 1997 she teamed up with Frankie Cutlass on his third single title "The Cypher Part 3" and some of Marley Marl Juice Crewveterans. In 1988, Shanté and Rick James had a hit with "Loosey's Rap."
