Grammy Award-winning trio Salt-N-Pepa were one of the first rap groups to cross over into the pop mainstream with the singles "Push It" and "Let's Talk About Sex." Their songs were primarily pro-feminist love anthems driven by big beats. Their 1994 release Very Necessary sold over five million albums and yielded two Top 5 Billboard singles "Shoop" and "Whatta Man."
Harlem rapper Biz Markie is best known for his 1989 anthem "Just a Friend" which peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Biz Markie proved with his distinctive silly humor that hip hop could be funny and melodic without sacrificing its street credibility. The Biz released five studio albums throughout his career and lost more weight than any other competitor in the first season of VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club."
