Long before the rise of Lil Wayne protAcgAce Nicki Minaj, even preceding the likes of Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, Eve and Foxy Brown, the genre of hip-hop and rap was squarely a male-dominated idiom. This completely changed with the emergence of Salt N Pepa, the first all-female rap crew. Able to create mainstream appeal with a unique blend of crossover pop, dance-oriented beats and prideful feminist rhetoric, the group's standout record, “Very Necessary” (with hits “Shoop” and “Whatta Man”), is regarded as a touchstone of the early '90s. Supported by the performance of fellow artists Biz Markie, Doug E Fresh, MC Lyte, and Naughty By Nature, Salt N Pepa are scheduled to perform at the Richmond Coliseum on Friday, March 25, at 8 p.m. $39-$75.
