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.
