At least two friends of my Facebook referenced Salt N Pepa this week. Ok, one of them referenced Deadpool after her anger in being a victim to snatch theft, but hey, that's reference enough! Salt N Pepa's Shoop was featured in the movie.

The other friend quoted Whatta Man when praising her husband's lovely efforts in helping her out with taking care of their baby.

So, which brings me to Salt N Pepa and their songs.
Back in the 1990s, they were the Sex and the City gals of female rappers. When Queen Latifah and Lauryn Hill spoke about feminism in serious tones, and Missy Eliot conconcted catchy beats for other rappers, Salt N Pepa spoke about feminism by rapping about women ogling at guys, which is normal but was never really featured in popular culture back then.
