Ooh, baby, baby, Salt N Pepa’s here! This week, Lifetime continued its string of made-for-TV movies with Salt N Pepa, a biopic about the famed hip-hop group. The two-hour Salt N Pepa movie tracks the group from their early days on the New York music scene to their meteoric rise, as well as their quest to become the first female rap group to achieve gold and platinum record status. “Push It,” indeed.
Fans of the iconic group will have plenty to enjoy in Lifetime’s Salt N Pepa, but given the overcrowded nature of the streaming landscape, it’s possible this biopic may have slipped through the cracks of your queue. If you missed the Salt N Pepa movie the first time around, you’re in luck: here’s everything you need to know about Lifetime’s new biopic!
WHAT IS THE SALT N PEPA MOVIE ABOUT?
According to Lifetime’s official description, Salt N Pepa (stylized 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.” The biopic tracks Salt and Pepa as they experience their first success and quickly rise in the ranks of the music world to become the first female rap act to go platinum, an experience that paves the way for a new generation of female rappers.
