Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Whatta Man" by Salt-n-Pepa

As far as the songs go, it was pretty much a toss up choosing between "Whatta Man" and "Shoop," both off of Salt-n-Pepa's 1993 album Very Necessary.  I decided to opt for "Whatta Man" because I like the video better, primarily for two reasons:

One, it also stars En Voguewith a brief appearance by Tupac Shakur as well.

And two, it features a brilliant editing technique first mastered by Paula Abdul two years earlier; if you're not quite as skinny as you'd like to be for your sexy music video shoot, you can just squish it together a little bit after the fact.
