Salt-N-Pepa, the first women to receive a rap Grammy (Best Rap Performance for "None of Your Business," in 1995), are well known for their songs about empowerment, sexuality and light aggression. Emerging onto the scene in 1985, the ladies joined forces with DJ Spinderella and subsequently took the hip-hop game by storm. With socially conscious hits like "Let's Talk About Sex," the sexually charged "Push It" and the anthemic "Expression," Salt-N-Pepa became known best for merging the super-sexy with natural strength, making the act one of the most celebrated hip-hop ensembles in history, male or female. Widely respected as purists of rap culture, Salt, Pepa and Spinderella have a special chemistry that makes for an incomparable showing of hip-hop at its finest.
