MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - June 13, 2018 - PRLog -- The grandmother of all rap battles is striking back with an epic comeback. Award-winning Indie Film Director Bobby Huntley II releases "Nana Roxie's Revenge" a short film paying homage to the Roxanne Wars phenomenon of the mid-1980's at the 305 Music + Film Conference.

In 1984, "Roxanne's Revenge" was a brilliant response record to UTFO's hit single, "Roxanne Roxanne, which created a firestorm of answer track records. Up to 100 released recordings are rumored to exist. The short film, 'Nana Roxie's Revenge' is centered around a local DJ, who uses an unlikely muse to help break into the burgeoning hip-hop scene. The film takes an interesting and intense look behind the scenes of a follow-up track featuring Nana Roxie's Revenge.

"I became inspired after watching the Netflix movie Roxanne Roxanne. I began researching and I discovered an underworld of response records to Roxanne Shanté and DJ Marley Marl. In the 80's, people were trying to gain traction to the dream of hip-hop and stardom for themselves. I knew there had to be a story buried somewhere, and then came the birth of Nana Roxie's Revenge," said Huntley.

Bobby Huntley II is a rising star from Atlanta, Georgia in the Indie filmmaking industry. He began directing at the tender age of ten. He specializes in developing true and authentic period pieces. He emerged on the national scene with a release of his fan-made trailer - the New Edition Biopic 'NE Heartbreak' in 2015.

Since his film debut, he has created several film projects, including an award-winning feature-length called 'La Vie Magnifique de Charlie', which is currently on tour in the film festival circuit.

'Nana Roxie's Revenge' will be screened on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 6:00 PM at 305 Music & Conference at Miami Live 912 71 Street Miami Beach, Florida 33141. Immediately following the screening, Director Bobby Huntley will participate in a Q&A session with the audience.
