Salt-N-Pepa, Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, M.C. Lyte, Kool Moe Dee

For about a decade, few musicians—gender be damned—could match the smarts or wit of Salt-N-Pepa.

Formed in 1985, the trio—including DJ Spinderella, who now calls Dallas home—busted out of Queens with the scratchin' street-funk of "Tramp" and its flipside, the sultry schoolyard-rap chant "Push It." Later came the consciousness-raising "Let's Talk About Sex" and what's perhaps Salt-N-Pepa's best-known work: 1993's Very Necessary, which contains "Whatta Man," "None of Your Business" and the almighty "Shoop."

After disbanding in 2002, the act reunited five years later. And, with a new album reportedly in the works, their ladies-first sentiments and strong, empowering voices will no doubt be welcomed with open arms.
