Salt-N-Pepa

Salt-N-Pepa
Hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa formed in 1985, but they had their greatest success in the 1990s, with hits like "Let’s Talk About Sex," "Whatta Man," and "Shoop" becoming some of the sexiest staples of the decade. The trio (Cheryl "Salt" James, Sandra "Pepa" Denton, and Deidra Muriel Roper, aka DJ Spinderella) broke barriers as one of the first all-female rap groups and quickly became household names.

After breaking up in 2002, Salt pursued a solo career, Pepa appeared on The Surreal Life and published an autobiography, and Spinderella remained behind the turntables as a radio and club DJ. Salt-N-Pepa reunited in 2007 and starred in a VH1 reality show that lasted two seasons. They went on a national tour in 2011 and most recently opened for Public Enemy in 2012.
