About the image
“She was just 14 years old and her record, Roxanne’s Revenge had gone to number one in the Rap charts.  She said “I couldn’t go to school no more because of my popularity. The Teachers thought it best if I got a tutor because my presence was disrupting.” We shot this photo on the street near my studio in NYC.”
