Producers Hurby Luv Bug & Hurby Luv Bug and the Invincibles. Writers Bert Berns, Hurby Luv Bug, O'Kelly Isley & 3 more. Recorded By Andre DeBourg.
Attempting to follow up the crossover success of "Push It," Salt-n-Pepa hastily recorded A Salt With a Deadly Pepa, which essentially tries to replicate the charms of their debut without expanding on them very much. It doesn't end up quite as engaging, and the duo's limitations start to show themselves on the more underdeveloped material here. There are some good moments, but the album's centerpieces are once again borrowed ideas.
