Sir Mix-A-Lot To Join Seattle Symphony For An Orchestral Version Of “Baby Got Back!”
When you saw this headline, if you are anything like me, then I’m sure you started to sing (in an opera tone) “I like big butts and I cannot lie”! Sir Mix-A-Lot is in deed teaming up with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra for a special version of “Baby Got Back!”
The composer who wrote the new version says, quote, “Sir Mix-A-Lot” is actually going to rap on-stage with the orchestra. He’s got this ‘rap persona’ but in reality he’s the softest, he’s only interested in mixing.”
This is the latest in a series called Sonic Evolution, which has previously included orchestral music for other Seattle artists like Kurt Cobain, Alice in Chains and Jimi Hendrix.
