I had a lot of respect for Roxanne Shante....keyword.....had. She's a damn liar. I have this woman on tape telling the big ass whopper of a lie that her record company paid for her college education and that she earned a Ph.D from Cornell. I had no reason at the time to question her truthfulness, I respected her and I took her word for it. It a damn shame that she took so many folks for suckers.

Adding insult to injury, she doesn't get why her lies are a problem. I'm quite sure she has collected a nice piece of change for speaking engagements at schools and colleges over the years, billing herself as "Dr. Rox" and relating her fake ass story, knowing damn well that she was lying her ass off.
I guess I really shouldn't be surprised. Roxanne Shante didn't write her own rhymes, but acted like she did, so it isn't surprising that she's claiming an education that she never earned. What an old school buster! Damn!
