The first all-female rap group, Salt-N-Pepa, will make its second visit to the Great New York State Fair’s Chevy Court stage on Wednesday, September 2 at 2:00 p.m. The show forms the first half of a full day of classic rap and hip hop on the Chevy Court stage. Their appearance starts an all-classic rap lineup for the day, which ends with Snoop Dogg at 8:00 p.m.
Legends, icons, trailblazers, pioneers, innovators and trendsetters are just a few words often used to describe Salt-N-Pepa. From Grammys to MTV Video Awards, they have won them all. Whether it’s the top of the charts or on stages at sold out coliseums across the country, they have done it all. They are Cheryl James, Sandra Denton (“Salt” and “Pepa”, respectively) and Deidra “Dee Dee” Roper (DJ Spinderella).
As the first ever female rap crew, Salt-N-Pepa broke barriers and opened doors wide open that were once closed to women in hip-hop. They gave women a voice in a male dominated industry and transformed the way the music world saw women forever. With the hit songs “Push It,” “Tramp,” “Shoop” and “Whatta Man,” Salt-N-Pepa would defy everyone’s expectations and catapult hip-hop to new levels.
The Grammy Award-winning group can also be called revolutionaries of rap and groundbreakers of the game because they used their performances to empower women with messages ranging from safe sex to independence to respecting yourself as a woman.
