Salt-n-Pepa is an American hip hop trio from Queens and Brooklyn, New York, that was formed in 1985. The group, consisting of Cheryl James (“Salt”), Sandra Denton (“Pepa”), and Deidra Roper (“DJ Spinderella”), was one of the first all-female rap crews.

Originally calling themselves Super Nature (on their first single), James and Denton debuted in 1985 with the single “The Showstopper”, an answer record to Doug E. Fresh’s hit single “The Show”.

“The Showstopper” was produced by Hurby Azor. The song utilized a melody from the 1984 film Revenge of the Nerds.
