This has been floating around the web for a while, but I love it so I decided to post it. This little clip shows Roxanne Shante talking about how her record label ending up paying for her graduate school education. Are there any other hip hop stars with a PhD?
UPDATE: Turns out Roxanne Shante was not telling the truth about that whole PhD thing. Everything hit the fan when the New York Daily News wrote about the PhD story in the fall of 2009. Slate decided to do a little fact checking (TOTALLY embarrassed the Daily News, by the way) and found that there was no education clause in Roxanne Shante’s record deal AND she does not have a PhD. Roxanne Shante has since issued an apology. That was a pretty elaborate lie she’s been telling for a couple years now. Not sure exactly why she would do that.
