Women Who Rock – #46 Salt-n-Pepa
Salt-n-Pepa’s Hot, Cool and Vicious is #46 on RS’s list of Greatest Albums from “Women Who Rock.” Unfortunately Spotify doesn’t have it available, so instead I listened to their Greatest Hits compilation. I wasn’t a huge hip-hop fan in high school, but I did like SNP. (I remember vastly preferring them to the annoying TLC, who many girls in my class liked.) I had the CD singles for “Shoop” and “Whatta Man” pretty much memorised. I liked their sense of humour and their politics. “Let’s Talk About Sex” is just such a perfect bit of early 90’s music and activism, isn’t it?
