The iconic duo of Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton, are known as the “First Ladies of Hip Hop.”
Cheryl and Sandra met when they were students at Queensborough Community College in Bayside, Queens, where they created a diss track that became a local hit.
Soon after, Deidra “Spinderella” Roper joined the duo as their official DJ and the three ladies would go on to make Hip Hop history!
Prior to the ceremony, Walk of Fame Producer Ana Martinez stated, “This upcoming star ceremony honoring Hip-Hop pioneers Salt-N-Pepa will honor the amazing 80s music we all love and so many grew up with!”
“We’re placing these ladies of Hip Hop royalty adjacent to Amoeba Music and right next to the Walk of Fame star of another Queen of Hip Hop, Missy Elliott!” she added.
Salt-N-Pepa and DJ Spinderella were honored with the 2,738th star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame.
It was really great to see all three ladies together for this momentous occasion considering their fallout years ago that involved a lawsuit and restraining order after Salt-N-Pepa fired DJ Spinderella.
During her speech, Spin called for the ladies to get some unity and do whatever it takes to get things right for the fans.
