The legendary Salt N Pepa who paved the way for women in rap is being honored with a biopic on Lifetime Network. Actress GG Townson plays Sheryl “Salt” James in Lifetime’s new “Salt-N-Pepa” biopic about the iconic hip-hop group. Townson told PIX11’s Ojinika Obiekwe what the hardest music number was to film.

The hip hop world in recent years have seen biopics depicting the iconic life and times of its most beloved artists. We have seen the life of Tupac Shakur, Notorious BIG, and N.W.A. and some say it is about time we get another women biopic after the critically acclaimed Roxanne Shante film that streamed on Netflix.

Salt N Pepa spoke with The Breakfast Club over various topics including the biopic in the video below.

There will always be problems and issues with these type of films in terms of correct history and informing viewers on the inside of the lives of the stars. Salt N Pepa have been brought to life on television screens for the upcoming biopic, but there is one critic who is rightly condemning the film.

Spinderella who was the deejay for the group is a non factor in her view in the story and was not even considered to be apart of the iconic group’s true history. This of course, has brought back the bad blood between Spinderella with the other members in Salt and Pepa.

Check out the following Twitter rant below.

The fans that follow the group seem to be in agreement with her as you can see below.
