I’m so excited to share reunion photos of our ole school female rap legends from back in the day! Salt & Pepa, Spinderella, Yo-Yo and MC Lyte BACK together for a performance at the 2016 Trumpet Awards held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. Ok… so I was backstage and did not get a chance to actually see the performance but I got pics and they ALL look great. 🙂
Backstage, Yo-Yo gave us a lengthy overview of her fight to help young kids in school, Salt & Pepa snapped selfies with the media and ALL the ladies seemed to be really happy to participate in this celebration of black achievement. Stay tuned to watch the performance which will air February 20, 2016!
