Salt-N-Pepa to receive Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Before the female rappers of today, there was Salt-N-Pepa.

The group, much known for their musical works in the the early 90s, is due to get their much deserved recognition on November 4th. At 11:30am PST, they will receive their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame where MC Lyte and Roxanna Chante will also deliver speeches on the group's large impact.

The group was formed back in 1985 with "Salt," Cheryl James, and "Pepa," Sandra Denton, and would go on to become the first all female rap group. Their best known hit "Push It" became the first rap song by a female act to reach Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In addition, 1995 would mark the year they would win a Grammy for best rap performance by a duo or group.
