#PepTalk: Essentially Pop Meets Pepa from Salt N Pepa

After selling out arenas across America, ‘I Love the 90s’ comes to the UK with some of the most iconic names in rap, hip hop and R&B.

With live sets from Vanilla Ice, Salt N Pepa featuring DJ Spinderella, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Coolio and Young MC, ‘I Love the 90’s’ is set to be the year’s biggest party with an arena tour taking in London, Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin, Liverpool and Birmingham this Autumn. These high octane 90s rappers will be performing their hits live on stage, with crowd favourites such as ‘Push it’, ‘Gangstas Paradise’, ‘Ice, Ice Baby’, ‘Funky Cold Medina’, ‘Bust A Move’ and ‘I Wanna Sex You Up’ amongst many others.

Ahead of their tour, Lisa had the chance to catch up for a #PepTalk with Pepa, part of the world’s most iconic female rap group, Salt N Pepa. Salt N Pepa have been delighting audiences for more than three decades, with hits including, ‘Let’s Talk About Sex’, ‘Push It’, ‘Shoop’, ‘Whatta Man’ and many more. They became the first female hip hop/rap artists to win a Grammy Award, and their 1993 album, ‘Very Necessary’, remains the best selling album for a female rap act.
