The Legends of Hip-Hop tour coming to Municipal Auditorium

Salt N Pepa: grown and sexy.
  • Salt N Pepa: grown and sexy.

It's been about 25 years since Salt N Pepa met each other at Queensborough Community College and started rapping together, and 1986 was also the same year that they released Hot, Cool & Vicious with their breakthrough hit, "Push It." (Yes, you are getting old.)

After winning a Grammy, making their acting debuts and selling a ton of records, they broke up in 2002. Five years later, Cheryl 'Salt' James Wray and Sandy 'Pepa' Denton starred in their own VH1 reality show, The Salt-N-Pepa Show. It chronicled Denton's bitterness about the breakup, Wray's relationship with the man upstairs, hair-weave endorsements, and the conflicts that ensue when Pepa wants to perform again and Salt can't hang with the questionable lyrics.

Now, fast-forward to 2011. Wray is back in the saddle, and the first ladies of hip-hop are bringin' the show to Municipal Auditorium for the Legends of Hip-Hop Tour.

Expect all the greatest hits, from "Shoop" to "Let's Talk About Sex." Other performers on the tour include the oft-sampled but never duplicated Whodini; champion beatboxer Doug E. Fresh; the first rapper with a major record deal, Kurtis Blow; and "Just a Friend" singer, Biz Markie.

Tickets are running $39.50 and $49.50 for the show on Sunday, February 13.
