Denton is best-known as part of Salt-N-Pepa, an all-female rap group. Additionally, she has appeared in several films such as crime drama “3 A.M.” and romantic comedy “Book of Love.”
Early Life and Education
Denton was raised on farms in a tight-knit community. While visiting friends often required hiking through cornfields or down country roads, she expanded her worldview through reading, traveling and creating games with her mother’s dress-up clothes – including her beloved fox stoles, prim hats with long veils dangling over her eyes and formal prom dresses that her daughters fondly remember from this period in time.
Studies suggest that early life is an integral time in brain development and education. From birth to eight years old is considered the ideal window for learning; one of the greatest investments any nation can make in its people. Furthermore, this period can have an enormous effect on child health and wellbeing; access to quality prenatal care can prevent complications like eclampsia or phenylketonuria while social programs detect any child abuse incidents early.
Denton appeared in both Joe’s Apartment and Oz and The Surreal Life on HBO television series, in addition to several music videos such as those for hits “Need U Bad” and “Let’s Talk About Pep”.
Denton is one of the founding members of hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa, which released their debut album Brand New in 1996. Although disbanded in 2002, Salt-N-Pepa reunited in 2008 and are currently working on new material for release.
Denton published her autobiography Let’s Talk About Pep in 2008. In it she discusses her life, including revealing she suffered sexual abuse as a child and was introduced by Queen Latifah. Denton currently stars on VH1 reality show Growing Up Hip Hop.
