Salt, along with Sandra “Pepa” Denton, formed Salt-N-Pepa in 1984, and Deidre “Spinderella” Roper joined in 1986. The trio released five studio albums and was 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 starred in The Salt-N-Pepa Show, a reality TV series about the group’s reformation.
