Salt 'n' Pepa: Cool, Hot & Vicious (Next Plateau)

Carol Cooper, Village Voice, The, 27 January 1987

I DON'T KNOW about you but I've been waiting quite a while for a girl rap group to duplicate the success of platinum playboys like Run-D.M.C. and the Beastie Boys. Why? Because they're there, first of all; fly MCs like Debby D and Sha-Rock, Sparky Dee, Pebbly Poo, Roxanne Shante, Lisa Lee, Princessa, and now Salt 'n' Pepa.
