Salt-N-Pepa Turned a Diss From Russell Simmons Into “Fuel” For Their Success

Salt-N-Pepa have been changing the game since the beginning.

So, even after receiving less-than-positive feedback from “Father of Hip Hop” and Def Jam Recordings founder Russell Simmons during the earlier part of their career, Cheryl James and Sandra Denton (Salt and Pepa, respectively) continued to do things their own way.

“Someone happened to ask [Simmons] about the Salt-N-Pepa girls, ‘What do you think?’ And Russell gave us a thumbs down,” Salt recalls in this clip from Sunday’s new True Hollywood Story. “And I remember feeling like I can either listen to the father of hip hop and fold, or I can use that as fuel.”

Suffice to say, they didn’t listen. Trailing their first album’s debut success, Salt-N-Pepa went on to become the first female rap act to earn a platinum certification and later, in 1995, the first female rap act to win a Grammy Award.
