Video Review: Salt-N-Pepa “Shoop”

Salt, Pepa and Spinderella drive to the beach at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Mohammed and Jarobi White play dice on the pavement.

Salt, Pepa and Spinderella dance on stage.

They check out the young men playing dice as they walk on the boardwalk.

They walk down the streets of Brooklyn and watch Chauncey, Teddy, Dave and Levi play basketball.

While on the beach, they sit on lounge chairs and watch Devante, Mr. Dalvin, K-Ci & JoJo play football near the shore.

R. Kelly talks with Pepa. Salt crawls on her hands and knees as she watches Johnny Gill take off his pants.

On stage, Salt puts her hands on her face as she spots Big Twan standing in the corner. He sits in a chair as Salt dances by him.

They watch the men do jumping jacks on the beach. Pepa points to one of the men. The men run on the sand as they play football.

Rating: 2/5

Spinderella chooses Devante as her man. Pepa says they can share and offers up her second pick. Salt shrugs and asks them why they don’t like R. Kelly. Spinderella tells her there’s something off-putting about him. Pepa says she’s heard some sickening rumors. Salt ays they are just rumors and that it doesn’t mean it’s true. Spinderella tells her there are plenty of options.

At the ice cream stand, Salt buys two fudge bars for Spinderella and Pepa. R. Kelly gets out his wallet and pays for her order. He also buys an ice cream sandwich for her. She says that it’s ok. He gives it to her and tells her she’ll be hungry in a few minutes. They talk and she says she has to give her friends their ice cream. Spinderella mouths to her “be safe.”

Pepa whispers to Spinderella that she may go over and ask to play football. Spinderella laughs and she doesn’t know what first down means. She gets out of her chair and asks her to what it is. Spinderella explains and tells her to leave some men for her.

Spinderella crosses her leg as she sits on the lounge chair. She waves to the men and blows them kisses. One of the men offers to buy her a drink. He helps her off the chair and she calls him a gentleman. She glances over her shoulder and looks at the other guys. She sips her drink and tells them they should walk back to the chairs. He was handsome but she didn’t want to stray too far from her friends. She hadn’t planned on meeting anyone. However, he was too good to pass up.
