This joint right here is one of the first albums that Salt-N-Pepa released back in `86, recorded by the original Salt-N-Pepa line up; Cheryl "Salt" James, Sandy "Pepa" Denton & Latoya "Spinderella" Hanson who was replaced later on by Deidre "Spinderella" Roper. Produced & written by Hurby "Luv Bug" Azor "Hot, Cool & Vicious" gave Salt-N-Pepa the first female rapper Grammy nomination. It also contained "Push It", one of the first Rap songs to hit #1 on the Dance Singles Charts. Other stand out jointS include "My Mic Sounds Nice", "I`ll Take Your Man", "Tramp" (a lil` ode to that Soul CLaSSiC by Otis & Carla), but my my fav` track would have to be "The Show Stopper", a DiSS/answer back record to Doug E. Fresh`s "The Show"...
