Salt-N-Pepa to receive star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Congratulations are in order for Salt-N-Pepa! The legendary hip-hop duo is receiving a highly coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The official ceremony will take place next month, with fellow mic mistresses MC Lyte and Roxanne Shante scheduled to appear as guest speakers.
Salt-N-Pepa’s impact on hip-hop and the music industry at large is undeniable. They made history as the first women in hip-hop to take home a Grammy Award when they won for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1995.
They also broke barriers on the Billboard charts, earning five albums on the Billboard 200, and three No. 1 singles on the “Hot Rap Songs” chart. One of their biggest hits, “Push It,” was the first rap song by a female act to break the Top 40 of Billboard Hot 100. Their hit 1993 album “Very Necessary” still stands as the best-selling rap album of all time by female artists.
