Led by rappers Cheryl James, or Salt, and Sandra Denton, or Pepa, with DJ Spinderella on the turntable, Salt-N-Pepa broke into the US mainstream at a time when much of white America looked at hip-hop with suspicion, seeing it as a passing fad rooted in street culture.
The New York-bred musicians not only helped break hip-hop's gender barrier but offered a subtle sense of female empowerment, rapping openly and without vulgarity about women's desires on tracks such as "Let's Talk About Sex" and "Shake Your Thang.""You still can only have a total of three partners in your life and not be called a ho," Denton told AFP with a hearty laugh at a pre-tour party at a Manhattan hotel, as the bartender mixed vodka drinks with salt-and-pepper rims."It's a double standard in corporate America," James said of the music business, while stressing that women elsewhere in the world faced even more daunting challenges, such as securing rights to divorce and child custody.

Pepa, along with her partner in rhyme Salt, are currently stepping in to take the place of Wendy Williams for her radio show as she had journeyed out to television and left the radio business behind her.
She eventually graduated from high school in Queens and enrolled in nursing courses at Queensborough Community College.
While in college, Denton met fellow student Cheryl James.
