The “I Love the ‘90s Tour” is coming to The Wharf and bringing a cavalcade of sounds from the decade that kindled and nurtured hip-hop.
Legendary hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa will be headlining with the fabulous Spinderella working the beats for the set. Salt-N-Pepa were among several notable emcees who helped establish a permanent niche for women in the hip-hop world. While the group broke out in the late ‘80s with such tracks as “Push It” and “Shake Your Thang,” Salt-N-Pepa ruled the ‘90s with hits like “Shoop,” “Whatta Man” (featuring En Vogue) and “None of Your Business.”
Salt-N-Pepa will be joined by a list of ‘90s era hip-hop artists. Rob Base will perform selections from his repertoire, including “It Takes Two.” Kid ‘n Play will showcase both their verbal and dance skills. Coolio will take the crowd into a “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Tone Loc will pump the crowd with such hits as “Wild Thang” and Young M.C. will “Bust a Move” for the crowd.
