Ah, Push it! Ah, Push it, Ah, Push it real good! Do those lyrics sound familiar? The iconic all women Hip-Hop group Salt-N-Pepa is coming out with a biopic! 

You probably know the group from the late 80’s early 90’s, with all their fun bright colors and high energy. Salt-N-Pepa is known for being pioneers in the Hip-Hop world with their catchy hooks, sexy lyrics and music videos you could only wish to be in! Salt-N-Pepa won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1994. Through the years, the group has gone through its ups and downs. Even though Spinderella sued the group about royalties in 2019, her character will still appear in the film.

G.G. Townsen is set to play Cheryl ‘Salt’ James, Laila Odom as Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton and Monique Jasmine Paul as Dee Dee ‘Spinderella’. In an interview with The Real Talk Show, Pepa’s daughter, Egypt Criss, said she auditioned for the role of her mother, but unfortunately, she didn’t get the role. On the bright side, she did say she might still have a role in the film, just not playing the role of her mother. 

The film is set to depict the trials and tribulations the group went through and how they overcame their struggles to get to the top! You can expect to hear some of their hit songs like, “Push it”, and of course the unforgettable song “Shoop”

There currently isn’t a release date for the biopic, but it is confirmed that it will premiere on Lifetime.
