Rapstress-Turnt-Actress: 9 Amazing Female Rappers to Watch on Screen


The Pop Princess: Pepa

Pepa is a much-loved rapstress. Having entered our hearts as half of the dynamic duo Salt-n-Pepa, this star has been shining independently for a number of years. Her recurring role on TV’s “Oz” as Officer Andrea Phelan has primed her for even bigger things. After small roles in the films “The Perfect Holiday” (2007) and “Love and a Bullet” (2002), Pepa could use a stand-out part that showcases her spunk. With more African-American superstars like Will Smith and Tyler Perry producing films, roles like this could soon be on the horizon for her.
