The Benton Franklin Fair and Rodeo has announced that female rapper's Salt-N-Pepa will be performing on the main stage at the 2016 Benton Franklin Fair and Rodeo. The duo along with DJ Spindrella will perform Tuesday August 23rd at 7 p.m.

According to the Benton Franklin Fair's press release:

They are, undoubtedly, the group that changed the face of hip-hop as we know it. 
They also gave females across the globe a voice within their communities and the music
 industry as a whole. Legends, icons, trailblazers, pioneers, innovators and trendsetters
are just a few words often used to describe this group. As the first ever female rap crew,
SALT N PEPA, broke barriers and opened doors that were once   closed to women
in hip-hop. These Queens gave women a voice in a male dominated industry and
transformed the way the music world saw women forever. With the hit songs "Push It,"
"Tramp," "Shake Your Thang," "Shoop" and "Whatta Man," Salt-N-Pepa would defy
everyone's expectations and catapult hip-hop to new levels. Outside of the realm
 of being legends of the hip hop game, Grammy Award winning group, Salt-N-Pepa can
also be called "revolutionaries of rap" and "ground breakers of the game."
Not only using their mic as a means to make big beats and heads bob, but they also
used it as means to get out messages of importance and relevance. From
safe sex to independence and respecting yourself as a woman, Salt-N-Pepa saw the
 urgency and importance of empowering females and using their voices through
the mic to influence millions with their music.
Tickets go on sale at 8 a.m. January 29 at, Kennewick Ranch & Home and the Fair Office. Reserved seats are $15. Fair admission is also required with reserved seats; general seating is free with admission.
