Pepa recently stopped by our office, and oh my god this interview was so much fun. Above, we talk bout Let’s Talk About Pep, her new reality show, and the years of celibacy she brought to it. Below, pretty much the best thing that ever happened to me is caught on tape: after some talk about Pep’s pop-culture longevity, together, she and I rap the first verse of Salt-N-Pepa’s 1990 hit “Expression,” and nail it on the first take. As someone who’s loved Salt-N-Pepa for the majority of my life, this was a dream come true.
