Salt-N-Pepa Announce ‘Legends of Hip-Hop’ Tour


Legendary rap trio Salt-N-Pepa are repping for the old school set in 2011. Cheryl “Salt” James, Sandy “Pepa” Denton, and Deidre “Dee Dee” Roper (aka DJ Spinderella) are spearheading a 20-city “Legends of Hip-Hop” tour, commemorating the 25th anniversary of their 1986 debut Hot, Cool, & Vicious.

The tour sees the groundbreaking ladies hitting the road with a star-studded roster of veterans including Kurtis Blow, Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, Slick Rick, Whodini, Kool Moe Dee, Rob Base, Naughty By Nature, and Biz Markie. Kicking off the tour on February 4 in Cleveland, Ohio, the crew will make stops in Miami, Philadelphia, Memphis, and more before wrapping up the trek at Atlanta’s Civic Center on April 2.

“We encounter so many people who said they long to hear and see us again in concert,” said Salt in a statement. “People really miss seeing us out there. They come up to us and mention that our music touched them, brings back so many great memories for them, and helped them just see life differently.”

Salt-N-Pepa, who stirred up controversy with their hits “Push It,” “Let’s Talk About Sex,” and “Whatta Man,” conceived the tour after selling out performances in 2010. “Last year, the response was incredible. From Atlanta to D.C., we sold out each date,” said Pepa. “People really want to see us and we really wanted to make this happen for our fans. Also, the timing was just right and it just all came together perfectly.”

  18. lobstafayce

    90% of Rap artists today could only dream of having flavor like Biz and the rest of this lineup. These are the original architects of the industry that feeds today’s rappers. It’s amazing how young people today have no respect for even the hands that feed them. Stupid. If you bite that hand you may soon run out of food.


  19. QueenB

    This young generation doesn’t realize if it wasn’t for greats like Salt n Pepa there wouldn’t be any hip hop right now!

    I’m making plans to be in the house when they come to VA. I love Salt n Pepa and Lyte.


    ricky Reply:

    @QueenB, what the younger generation doesn’t realize is that we witnessed a new style of music . they don’t realize how awesome that was, so they can’t relate to it.


  20. tdonag3

    looking forward to starting off the tour with all my fav’s from back in the day in Cleveland this friday! The younger kids don’t realize half of the music they listen to today is either remix or stolen beats from these founders of hip-hop.


  21. Dottie Connor

    I am so looking forward to this old school party. It has been a long time coming.I wish Heavy D could join..Thank you.


  22. concerned

  23. KDM(keep dat money)

    Please Understand that You are a serious Hater! You came on a site dedicated to them to Criticize them!
    Deep down inside You like ‘em! Well, I’m sure you’ve got a billion “comebacks” and excuses, but at the end of the day…Them “has been Bitches, count the tour dates and multiply that by AT LEAST 30K! AT LEAST! I’m sure more.
    Here’s the deal! They “HAS BEEN” to the bank waaay more times than YOU!


  24. Coolyfett

    I read the Show in cleveland was bad!!! I really hope the review was from a young stupid fan instead of someone who grew up during this era. Was anyone here at the Buffalo or Cleveland show to share how it went??


  25. Coolyfett

    Its very interesting to see young people disrespect The Legends of Hip Hop, with no remorse or anything. Shows you the difference between 80s fun hip hop & the egoswag hip hop of today. For all those people who grew up to watching Fab Five Freddy on Yo MTV Raps or Chris Thomas on RapCity, To those people who know what dookie ropes & Cazels are, To those people who used to high speed dub their cousins new Salt N Pepa tape so you could have a copy…..YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. Buy a ticket & hit Itunes. All the music is there. Do The Right Thing. Peace.


  26. jerry

    The Cleveland show was off the chain. It lasted about 3 1/2 hours and we were on our feet dancing the whole time. No one disappointed, if you get a chance to go to concert, make sure you are there!


  27. youngin

    i dont see why you all say ‘youngsters’ are ignorant about rap. im young, but could not be more excited for this to come to dc. just because some people my age dont think about real rap doesnt mean we all do.



    I am very excited about the show coming to the Baton Rouge area. The last time I saw Salt N Pepa was in 87′ and I had the time of my life. I told my children that this was REAL RAP. This rap had meaning, it was something you could relate to. Todays rap artist use to much bad language and they are so degrading of females. Me and my sons compared the rap of today with the old school rap and he actually told me, “Mama, I see what you mean, I like this. So with that being said, I have already purchased family tickets to the concert booked the hotel and cant wait for the show.

    This had been a LONG TIME COMING!!!!!



    If you are not a fan of Hip Hop it is perfectly ok, but please refrain from calling people out of their name and with the way some of this youngest are today(U), I am sure Salt N Pepa are not trying to put themselves in your place.


  30. gloriya

    The concert in Columbia was so wonderful. I can’t stop smiling. I am a fan for life. Queens for life!!!!! They looked so beautiful. I am in Aw


  31. malison

  32. Patrick
