Roxanne Shante apologizes for lying *Blank Stare*

Don't call it a comeback...

Don't call it a comeback...

Old School rap artist Roxanne Shante, recently was put on blast for lying. She has been going around stating she received a PhD in Psychology. She has now issued an apology for her lying….

“I would like to thank my long time fans and supporters for your continued support. I am humbled and grateful to all of you for that. Without going into all of the details as of right now, I would like to apologize that this story regarding my post recording career has caused such a ruckus. The entire story will be revealed at a later time.

Throughout my career and life, I have been faced with many challenges, both professionally and personally. Like all of you, I am human, and may have not made the correct decision all the time. And, like anyone else, I would like to think that my entire life or career is not judged by one error or mistake.

It is very easy to criticize someone and I have left myself open to criticism. That is fair. There are plenty of people that will attest that I have done a lot for them. It seems though, that negativity gets more attention than positivity.

All I can say to that, is before you level any further criticism and cynicism, walk in my shoes. I am making this statement to apologize to the people that truly care about me for any angst that this situation has caused, and to thank them for their continued support. I am proud of what I have been able to do for so many others, and would like to let those persons know that I will continue to be there for them no matter what.

I am proud that during my twenty plus years as a pioneer in the Hip-Hop industry, to have opened doors for those who came after me, such as MC Lyte, Salt N Peppa, and Queen Latifah to name a few. I will have no further statement in regards to this matter at this time.”

So ummmm why exactly was lying necessary? Is this her “attempt” to come back into the game? *Blank Stare*

  1. This really saddens me. I came up in NYC during the birth of hip hop and this is not something I’d wish one of the pioneers to be remembered for, but everyone makes mistakes. Momma always said, “what’s done in the dark will come to light”. Now I just hope Shante can move on once the dust settles.
