Salt-N-Pepa pioneered a role for women in hip-hop with a string of sultry dance-floor hits in the 1980s and '90s.Led by rappers Cheryl James, or Salt, and Sandra Denton, or Pepa, with DJ Spinderella on the turntable, Salt-N-Pepa broke into the US mainstream at a time when much of white America looked at hip-hop with suspicion, seeing it as a passing fad rooted in street culture.Salt-N-Pepa -- whose other hits included "Push It," "Shoop" and, with En Vogue, "Whatta Man" -- have not released a studio album since 1997, although the rappers said they are working on new material.In a sign that hip-hop has quickly emerged from its roots in African American culture, Salt-N-Pepa will now perform mostly to white audiences, said Jeff Allen, co-owner of Universal Attractions Agency, which is presenting the tour.Other rap stars from the era will join Salt-N-Pepa on some dates.
