Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There are two ways of combating the blazing misogyny of gangsta rap: with water or with fire. Journalists, teachers, and ministers have been trying to douse the flames of sexism with intellectual and moral arguments. The reasoning is persuasive, but it's doubtful it reaches rap's hard-core young audience. For that crowd, you have to fight fire with fire, and that's just what the female rap trio Salt 'N' Pepa have done so successfully with Very Necessary. With their explicit rapping about bedroom gymnastics, Salt 'N' Pepa are unlikely to be held up as role models in classrooms or churches anytime soon. For a sexually active teenage girl, however, the trio shows how you can get your pleasure without putting up with any disrespect. Salt 'N' Pepa's hit singles "Whatta Man" and "Shoop" are both sensual appreciations of the men they like, but the album also contains some hilarious, pitiless putdowns of the men who don't treat them right. --Geoffrey Himes

4.0 out of 5 stars Salt 'n Pepa is a great group of talented rappers! December 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Very necessary by Salt 'n Pepa is one of the best rap albums I have heard. I give this CD 4 stars, though, because not all of the tracks are excellent. "Shoop", "None of your business", and "Step" are the best tracks on the album. If you like women rappers, this is a must-have for your collection. Salt 'n Pepa is a very talented group and all of their albums are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply The Best Album Ever! October 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Salt 'N Pepa's "Very Necessary" is one of the few albums where you never think of skipping a track. Every song is not good, not great, but EXCELLENT. They were, of course, the first and best women in hip-hop music (not to mention the cutest). Although only three of the songs on Very Necessary made it to the Billboard Top 40, they're all on the list of my 100 favorite songs of all time. If you were a kid in the '90s, you'll certainly love Salt 'N Pepa's 1993 album Very Necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Salt N Pepa February 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed recieving this CD. I had it before, but it was stolen by some near-do-wells who couldn't buy there own. Anyway, it is an excellent CD for you old school-ers by a group of ladies that knew how to rap. You won't find this type of sophisticated rapping anymore (at least not in my age bracket).

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i've enjoyed these women for years.they don't always get there props and that ain't right cuz they have meant alot not only to rap but to other forms of music.if it was just to look good and rap then that would be one thing but these women have the goods musically and looks.this disc has some great jams like shoop among others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too too true May 18, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No one does it better than Salt N Pepa when it comes to hardcore rap lyrics mixed with sweet funky rhythms. And do these women tell the truth? Check out "Sommatime Man" "Somebody's Gettin' On My Nerves" or "Whatta Man" and see if you don't find yourself adopting their p.o.v. as your own! Totally crucial S&P!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic and a must own. January 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite albums. I grew up listening to Salt-N-Pepa throughout the 80's and 90's. This album rules. I wonder what ever happened to Salt-N-Pepa. Did they split up or just quit the music business?
