Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT featuring Grammy Award-winning hip hop duo Salt N' Pepa plus David Quinn and Vince Velazquez from TV One's ATL Homicide

Lifetime presents a new https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfNQ25ih8EY">biopic about the first ladies of hip hop---Salt N' Pepa---airing TONIGHT at 8 p.m. The film chronicles their rise to international acclaim and becoming the first female rap act to achieve gold and platinum status. They are also the first female rap act to recieve a Grammy Award and are the recipients of this year's Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. I caught up with the ladies this week to chat about the new film, their iconic music and much more. 

TV One's popular true-crime series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ_WlYt6JFw">ATL Homicide is back for third season. The one-hour series features real-life interviews with former Atlanta homicide detectives David Quinn and Vince Velazquez and is paired with dramatic recreations of their most memorable cases. During our two-part conversation, we address the controversial topic of "defunding the police" as well as the Rayshard Brook case and their very own experience of racial profiling while filming this new season.
