The Null Device

Dr. Lolita Shanté Gooden

Something I didn't know until now: 1980s female rapper Roxanne Shanté (capsule summary: everything Missy Elliott did, she did 15 years earlier) is now a practicing psychologist in New York, having gotten her Ph.D by way of getting her label to write paying for her education into her contract and riding that sucker all the way, as she explains here.

It was revealed in an interview in 2009 New York Daily News that this was a lie. She DOES NOT have a PhD. I was appalled when I read this because she truly inspired me :-(
