The duo consisting of Salt  — Cheryl James — and Pepa — Sandy Denton — will join previously announced honorees Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott.

They made history with that album as the first female rap group to have an album certified platinum. Salt-N-Pepa reached the height of their success in 1993 with their five-times platinum album, Very Necessary, featuring their hits “Shoop” and “Whatta  Man” with En Vogue.
