UPDATE: Roxanne's Revenge: Not A True Story [File This Under Debunked Feel Good Stories]
We previously mentioned a story reported in the Daily News about Roxanne's Revenge - the heartening story about a young rapper who got a PhD on Warner Music because of a clause promising to pay for her education "for life." According to Slate, the story appears to be false. Perhaps it is a better lesson for the journalism students than the law students.
It sure was a good story while it lasted.
