Salt-N-Pepa stars GG Townson as Salt, Laila Odom as Pepa, Cleveland Berto as music producer Hurby Azor (who recorded Salt-N-Pepa’s first music), Jermel Howard as rapper Treach and Monique Paul as DJ Spinderella. The film is directed by Mario Van Peebles (New Jack City); James and Denton serve as executive producers.
