Her ex-fiancé, Maurice Turner, made a rap song titled “For the Rest of My Life” in 2013 to celebrate their marriage. He also made another song previously before that titled “Dreamgirl Slideshow” in 2012. On ”For the Rest of My Life” the former lover raps, “I never thought it would be/More than a magical fantasy/The goddess of love falling head over heels for me/Coming here to set me free/Its no doubt that your my destiny?/This player is out of the game.” The four minute ode to Dolezal was discovered through Facebook after some fans dug up the audio. You can listen to both songs below.
