Sandra Denton is a Mother of Two: All Details of the Rapper's Relationship with Her Kids!
Best known for the 1986 smash Push It, Sandra Denton is a rapper and actress popularly known as Pepa of the hip-hop girl group Salt-N-Pepa. The 57 years old rapper-turned-actress is a supporting cast member on the music reality television show Growing Up Hip-Hip.
Pepa was born Sandra Jacqueline Denton, on November 9, 1969, in Kingston, Jamaica. She spent her early life on a farm in Jamaica and later moved to Queens with her parents and seven more children. Denton released her memoir Let's Talk About Pep in 2008, listing her battles, toxic relationships, and her career with Salt-N-Pepa. Not to mention, Pepa even honored her place of origin by naming her cat Jamaica.
Denton is a Doting Mother of Two Children!
The Push It rapper, Sandra Denton, is a doting mother of two. One of Pepa's kids is pushing his 30s, and another is in her mid-20s. Pepa had her first child, a son named Tyran Jr. Denton, on July 6, 1990.

Many think Denton had Tyron with her ex-husbandTreach. But that is not the case. Pepa conceived Tyron when she was dating Barry Riddick, rapper Tyran "Tah-Tah" Moore. Pepa and her son have often appeared on episodes of Growing Up Hip Hop, and viewers know the tension in the family's dynamic.
Tyran's father isn't a famous figure in the hip-hop industry like his mother; it is known that Riddick had quite a run with the law back when he was pursuing a career in rap. And, as per Tyran's Instagram bio, the son of Sandra is an entrepreneur and runs a brand called Equally Unique.
Tyran reportedly has a good relationship with Treach, best known for the hip-hop group Naughty by Nature. Pepa and Treach welcomed Tyran's half-sister Egypt Jahnari Criss.

Denton's daughter, Egypt, wants a music career. The 23 years old made it clear from the beginning during her debut on Growing up Hip-Hop, where she showed no interest in college.
Egypt, too, has been controversial, just like mom. She started dating rapper Sam Mattick in season 4 of GUHH. However, the celebrity child received widespread backlash for dating the father of two.
In addition to Egypt's career, she labels herself as the Princess of Hip Hop. It appears that Egypt is religious with a strong faith in God.

The next day, Dean's ex-wife reposts the same picture but slams the Salt-N-Pepa rapper in the comments. Dean's estranged wife, Jordyn Taylor, writes, "When mistresses talk about God, it's laughable," referencing Pepa's caption on the picture.
Taylor claims Dean left her for Pepa while she was pregnant with his second child. Jordyn blames the rapper for keeping Dean away from his children and micro-managing his career.
Pepa has since deleted the post of Dean and hasn't responded to Taylor's comments. Denton geared up for the 2022 MixTape tour, which she will participate in with the iconic New Kids on the Block, Salt-N-Pepa, En Vogue, and Rick Astley.
