Legendary hip hop artists Salt-N-Pepa are receiving the biopic treatment this weekend courtesy of a revealing movie on Lifetime. Salt-N-Pepa follows Cheryl "Salt" James and Sandra "Pepa" Denton from their humble days as extended warranty salespeople at Sears and nursing students to the heights of music superstardom, and with 35 years of career in their rearview mirror, there's a lot to be told. Executive produced by the icons themselves and starring GG Townson (Salt) and Laila Odom (Pepa), the film is a compelling homage to this pioneering duo; the first female rap act to go platinum, receive multiple Grammy Awards, and pave the way for a host of female rappers to follow.
