Lip Sync Battle, 21 May 2015: An old school hip-hop fan’s wet dream

Lip Sync Battle is hilarious. Sometimes intentionally (like when Anne Hathaway flipped Emily Blunt the bird from a Miley Cyrus wrecking ball or when Terry Crews and Mike Tyson faced off), sometimes unintentionally (like the look on Derek Hough’s face when his sister Julianne danced around to the Lonely Island’s “I Just Had Sex” or the look on my face when the booty-less Julianne Hough tried to twerk to Meghan Trainor’s “All About that Bass”).

Amidst all of the fun, last night was awesome for a completely different reason.

LL Cool J, the host of the weekly celebrity competition, introduced the pair of contestants: Salt and Pepa. If the three hip-hop icons sharing a stage in 2015 wasn’t enough, imagine the sheer joy when Salt decided that she needed to suit up in Adidas and gold chains and lip sync to Run DMC’s “Tricky.”

Talk about an old school hip-hop moment! It could have only been better if Rev. Run and Darryl Mac had joined her onstage in the flesh!

If you don’t already watch the show, check out the clip below, and then set the DVR for Thursday nights on SpikeTV.
