The iconic rap group that paved the way for female rappers, Salt N Pepa, provided their fans an inside look at their life and career on Lifetime Network.

The women were an integral part of the 1980’s and 1990’s evolution of the rap game as female rappers starting to sell records just as much as their male counterparts at the time.

As with anything in life, the ladies had their trials and tribulations as they faced a male dominated industry where they had to fight to let their own voices be heard.

The group imploded when Salt (Cheryl James) and Pepa (Sandra Denton) were not seeing eye to eye about their music and the industry lifestyle as a whole.

Another aspect that got a bit messy was the perceived treatment the DJ of the group (Deidra Roper) felt in terms of not being seen as an equal. DJ Spinderella’s issues arose with the other woman once again when the biopic was being filmed as she notes the actress portraying her was not given the opportunity to meet her in person to get to know more about her.

Some fans boycotted the airing of the movie due to the absence of any real storyline for DJ Spinderella. Checkout the fallback in the tweets below.
