In 2017, the story of Shante was brought to the audience by Netflix with the drama movie titled Roxanne Roxanne. And speaking at the premiere of the movie, Shante answered a long due question, whether she will be rapping again or not. She said,

If Roxanne Shanté did an album it would be a ‘Roxanne Shanté Presents’ because I believe in giving that platform to a lot of sisters whose voices aren’t being heard, who don’t want to compromise their morals, who are afraid to come into the industry because of what they feel is going to happen as far as it being a male-dominated industry, or they need to do this or do that.
