Update 10/19/09: The Roxanne Shante Lied About Ph.D.>>Read Full Story Here>>
This has got to be one of the best single mom revenge stories that I have heard in a long time.
Remember the 14-year-old rapper, “Roxanne Shante,” famous for her battle rap, “Roxanne’s Revenge” answering to UTFO’s “Roxanne, Roxanne.”
Watch the video below to jog your memory:
UTFO feat. Full Force:
The Real Roxanne’s answer rap:
Here’s “Roxanne Shante’s” answer:
“This is a story that needs to be told,” Shante said. “I’m an example that you can be a teenage mom, come from the projects, and be raised by a single parent, and you can still come out of it a doctor.” Roxanne Shante
Well, not only did she get her revenge on UTFO, the former rapper, who was also a young single mother, got revenge on her label, Warner Brother’s Records for not honoring their committment to pay for her education in full. In the end, Warner Brother’s paid for her education (she earned a Ph.D) at a total cost of $217,o0o! Now, that’s single mama revenge at its finest.
