U.T.F.O. had recently released a single called “Hanging Out,” which did not gain much critical acclaim; however, the B-side “Roxanne, Roxanne”, about a woman who would not respond to their advances, became a hit. Shante, who was a member of the Juice Crew, was contracted to write a track in rebuttal to U.T.F.O.’s rap, posing as the Roxanne in the U.T.F.O. song. Marley Marl produced the song “Roxanne’s Revenge” using the original beats from an instrumental version of “Roxanne, Roxanne”.

Following this, the “Roxanne Wars” started, and Shante continued to rap and started touring.

It was reported by Blender in 2008 and more extensively in a New York Daily News account in 2009, that Shante earned a bachelor’s degree from Marymount Manhattan College and a master’s and Ph.D in psychology from Cornell University, and that a quirk in her recording contract obligated Warner Music to fund her college education. These were not new claims by Shante; she spoke on the subject at length on the Beef II documentary, which was released in 2004. However, an investigation by lawyer and journalist Ben Sheffner for Slate magazine found no evidence of Shante’s claims. She was never signed to a Warner Music label, but was under contract to the independent label Cold Chillin’ Records, which was in turn distributed by Reprise/Warner Bros. Records from 1987 to 1992. Academic records indicate that she attended only three months at Marymount Manhattan College. Shante never earned any degree and she is unlicensed by New York State officials to practice psychology or similar disciplines. The Daily News subsequently ran a five-paragraph correction. Shante apologized in November 2009.
