Though their first album was released in 1986, rap trio Salt N Pepa peaked commercially and creatively in the early nineties. On the strength of singles “Shoop” and “Whatta Man,” they sold over five million copies of their 1993 album Very Necessary. “Shoop” was ruined by a tacky and unnecessary use of the r-word by whoever that uncredited guest rapper guy was, but “Whatta Man” is a classic. “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “None of Your Business,” and “Push It” are all also great, confrontational songs from an era when female rappers got little to no airplay. The I Love The 90s tour also includes Color Me Badd, Kid N Play, and Young MC. The cheap tickets are unfortunately gone already.
