Roxanne (U.T.F.O.)

If you want to talk fictional female characters in hip hop, you have to start with Roxanne. The sexy unapproachable beauty didn’t show much love to the members of U.T.F.O. on their classic single “Roxanne, Roxanne,” but she ended up becoming the genesis for the real life rap battle between Queens femcee Roxanne Shante and U.T.F.O.
