AUSTIN (KXAN) — Showstoppers Salt-N-Pepa were number one in a hot party show on the LBJ Lawn Saturday, headlining Longhorn City Limits.
Salt-N-Pepa’s was there to help fans shake their thang before cheering on the mighty good men playing Rice in UT’s second home game of the season.
The concert was free to all fly mothers — and other fans — looking to get on out there and dance.
The LBJ Lawn, located on the northeast corner of DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium opened at 2 p.m. for party people coming through. The duo provided a little shoop ba-doop ahead of the game’s 7 p.m. start.
Though many students weren’t old enough to remember the legendary pair in its prime, anyone could appreciate the way they pushed the limits real good, paving the way for female rappers starting in the 80s. Salt-N-Pepa was the first female rap act to have an album go gold and then platinum.
“Salt-N-Pepa have influenced millions of fans and an entire generation of artists during their illustrious career,” said UT Vice President and Director for Athletics Chris Del Conte.
