WATCH: Sir Mix-A-Lot Raps ‘Baby Got Back’ With Seattle Symphony

Well add this to the things you thought you’d never see.

Last Friday night, rapper Sir-Mix-A-Lot, famous for his 1992 booty anthem Baby Got Back, collaborated with the Seattle Symphony to perform an orchestral version of the song.

According to

Sir Mix-A-Lot’s collaboration with the symphony was part of “Sonic Evolution,” a project aimed at creating “a bridge between the Symphony and Seattle’s storied reputation as launching pad for some of the most creative musicians on the popular music scene.”

It also was a huge audience draw for people who don’t normally attend orchestra concerts.

And check out what happens when Sir Mix-A-Lot invites big-bootied audience members on stage to dance.

The lead Pic of the “Rapper” with the white top on is NOT Sir Mix-A-Lot, but is instead the DJ Mr. Mixx (2 ‘X’s).

Come on, hasn’t the media learnt anything from the Samuel L/Larry Fish Saga yet??? Jeez :-P


Hi Roland! Actually it IS Sir Mix-A-Lot. It’s from 2004, which may be why you are confused, so here’s the deets on the photo:

We thought it was a fitting image for the cool video so we used it. Thanks for commenting!

So why does it clearly say “Mr. Mixx” on his jersey and the fact that he actually doesn’t look like Sir Mix-A-Lot. I’m Black by the way (and *not* Hispanic, btw), I can tell 2 black men apart.

Here’s just a thought, but could it just be that the photographer at the MGM Grand didn’t know who Mr.Mixx was (he’s from 2-Live crew btw), just do a Google image search and you’ll see that I’m right.
