Salt-N-Pepa don’t want to collaborate with current artistes

The ‘90s rap group had won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance in 1995

Rap group Salt-N-Pepa don’t want to collaborate with any contemporary artists like Nicki Minaj as they don’t understand their rivalry.

The ‘90s rap group had a number of successful hits including Push It, Shoop and Let’s Talk About Sex, and even won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance in 1995.

But the girls — Cheryl ‘Salt’ James, Sandra Denton (Pepa) and Deidra Roper (DJ Spinderella) — have no interest in working with modern pop stars and would much rather team up with acts from their generation including Missy Elliot and Lil’ Kim, reported Contactmusic.

“I love that when we were coming up in music there were so many women and we were all cool with each other. But I don’t understand this rivalry artistes like Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma have with each other. It’s really brutal,” they said.

“There was Missy Elliot, Lil’ Kim and Warren Hill when we started and we all had different voices that represented all the people. We all got along. I think that if I was to do a collaboration I want to do it with one of those ladies. Someone from my era I think would be amazing.”
