Lifetime has announced the air date for a documentary about the most iconic girl groups in pop culture history — Salt-N-Pepa.
The three-hour Lifetime original movie Salt-N-Pepa, about the groundbreaking hip hop duo, premieres Saturday, January 23 at 8 pm ET/PT.
The movie will be immediately followed by the documentary Salt-N-Pepa Interview Special, hosted by and NAACP award-winning, Loni Love.
According to the press release, Salt-N-Pepa details the journey of Queensborough Community College students Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton as they enter the world of rap and Hip-Hop after recording a song for their friend Hurby Azor.
“Salt-N-Pepa made a huge impact in hip hop by being one of the first all-female rap groups, changing the look of hip hop and unafraid to talk about sex and share their thoughts on men,” the description continued. “Salt-N-Pepa became the first female rap act to go platinum and experienced groundbreaking success with multiple awards, including a Grammy, paving the way for all female rappers to follow. The miniseries will also feature their greatest hits like ‘Let’s Talk About Sex,’ ‘What a Man,’ ‘Shoop’ and ‘Push It,’ among others.”
The group’s legacy pavied the way for the more unapologetically, sexually liberated music releases we see and hear today.
The film will feature performances of Salt-N-Pepa’s greatest hits, including: “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “What a Man,” “Shoop,” and “Push It.” The movie stars GG Townson as Cheryl “Salt” James, Laila Odom as Sandra “Pepa” Denton, Cleveland Berto as music producer “Hurby Azor,” Jermel Howard as rapper “Treach,” and Monique Paul as “DJ Spinderella.”
