It's Been 25 Years Since Sir Mix-A-Lot Was Hooked And Couldn't Stop Staring, But Where Did He Go?

- Page 1

There are few singers who are quite as iconic as Sir Mix-a-Lot. His song "Baby Got Back" came out all the way back in 1992, but it's still well known to this day. The thing is, does anyone know where he actually went? Sure, we still hear the song, but when was the last time you actually saw him?

Sir Mix-a-Lot is actually named Anthony Ray. He was born in Washington in 1963, and it was in the 80s when he developed his love of hip-hop music. He joined forces with Nasty Nes in 1983, and at only 20 years old, he co-founded the Nastymix record label. He released his first single "Posse on Broadway" in 1987 and made the Top 100 charts but quickly fell out of popularity.

His first album went platinum but that's not the one that people remember. They don't even remember his second album Seminar that was released in 1989. The only one that matters is the 1992 hit Mack Daddy.

The single "Baby Got Back" went double platinum and won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance. The song caused a bit of controversy, as MTV would only air the music video at night because of the adult themes. It seems a little ridiculous given that every 90s song is inappropriate, but I guess it made sense at the time.

But where did he go after his huge hit left the airwaves?

There are few actors who seem to care as much as Gene Wilder did. The iconic actor was an absolute treasure and the effort he put into his roles was clearly evident. Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was always a pretty big moment for people when they were kids. You honestly don't know fear until you watch the creepy boat tunnel scene and experience a type of terror that makes no sense. But even though Willy Wonka kind of frightened us, we still loved his goofy nature and his outlandish attitude. Wilder had many hit movies, but it's

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended.

12 Songs You Heard At Every Party In The 80s That You're Definitely Still Obsessed With

Music from the 80s has stood the test of time, and I'm not saying that because I grew up in that decade. The lyrics were catchy, relatable, and upbeat. They also seemed to have choreography to go with it, and we knew how to dance to them all. We definitely had our priorities straight. For example, which scenario would do you better for the long term: Receiving a perfect grade on one math test or knowing how to moonwalk for the rest of your life. The answer is intuitive. There are so many awesome songs that were played at every
