Sir Mix-A-Lot

Sir Mix-A-Lot

Biography

As the first superstar rapper from Seattle, veteran emcee Sir Mix-A-Lot blazed up the pop charts with his crossover smash "Baby Got Back" in 1992. His nasal flow, catchy production (provided by Mix, Strange, and Rick Rubin), and praising of ample booty was the perfect formula for mass success. Mix-A-Lot's party-time rhymes were more concerned with bustin' nuts than bustin' caps, and the public was feelin' it. His reign was short lived however, as Gangsta Rap became more and more popular, Sir Mix-A-Lot's star began to fade, and, though he went on to release two more albums, many dismissed him as a one-hit wonder.
