From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cheryl James (born March 8, 1964), better known as Salt, is an American rapper and a member of the rap trio Salt-N-Pepa, which also includes Pepa (Sandy Denton) and Spinderella (Deidra "Dee Dee" Roper). Salt currently stars in The Salt-N-Pepa Show, a reality TV series focusing on reforming the group.

Musical career

James and Denton formed Salt-N-Pepa in 1984 and Roper joined in 1985. They released five studio albums: Hot, Cool & Vicious (1986), A Salt with a Deadly Pepa (1988), Blacks' Magic (1990), Very Necessary (1993), and Brand New (1997). They were the first female rap act to have gold, platinum, and multi-platinum albums, and the first female rap act to win a Grammy. The group disbanded in 2002 but reformed in 2008.

Salt co-starred in the 1993 motion picture Who's the Man? In 1997, she performed with gospel artists Kirk Franklin and God's Property on the hit gospel/hip hop song "Stomp", from the album God's Property from Kirk Franklin's Nu Nation, one of the best-selling albums in gospel music history. She appeared briefly on VH1's first annual Hip Hop Honors in November 2004 along with Pepa, but they did not perform. All three group members did perform on the second Hip Hop Honors on September 22, 2005. This was the trio's first performance as Salt-N-Pepa since 1999. On October 23, 2008, Salt-N-Pepa performed "Shoop", "Push It", and "Whatta Man" at the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards. In 2009, Salt was featured in the Generation Gospel Exclusive on 106 & Gospel.[1]

  • What's the matter with your life? Why you gotta mess with mine?
    • "None of Your Business"
  • The difference between a hooker and a ho ain't nothin' but a fee
    So hold your tongue tightly, wish you could be like me
    You're poppin' all that mess only to stress and to spite me
    Now you can get with that or you can get with this
    But I don't give a shit cuz really it's none of your business.
    • "None of Your Business"
  • No, I ain't hard like the bitches on a boulevard
    My face ain't scarred, and I don't dance in bars.
    You can call me a tramp if you want to
    But I remember the punk who just humped and dumped you.
    • "None of Your Business"
  • So the moral of this story is: Who are you to judge?
    There's only one true judge, and that's God
    So chill, and let my Father do His job.
