Sir Mix-A-Lot sang Baby Got Back with a symphony orchestra and it was spectacular

Sir Mix-A-Lot

Sir Mix-A-Lot joined the Seattle Symphony Orchestra to perform his signature song, “Baby Got Back.” He was accompanied on stage by women from the audience, many of whom had serious junk in the trunk. One in particular dominated the stage, wildly gesticulating and twerking in a spectacular booty moment.

How about that lady in the black dress though? She was clearly the star of the show. Attention whoring it up with her big booty.


For three years, the Seattle Symphony has joined together with a popular musician to produce something like this. It just so happens that Seattle is Sir Mix-A-Lot’s hometown.

Now in its third year, Seattle Symphony’s critically acclaimed Sonic Evolution project creates 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. Each year, in celebration of the past, present and future of our city’s musical legacy, Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony commission world-class composers to write orchestral world premieres inspired by bands and artists that launched from, or are related to, Seattle.

In addition to writing a brand new composition inspired by Seattle’s own Sir Mix-A-Lot, composer Gabriel Prokofiev also orchestrated two of the legendary rapper’s most famous hits for this year’s concert, including “Baby Got Back,” for which Sir Mix-A-Lot joined Ludovic Morlot and the Orchestra on stage at Benaroya Hall.

I love everything about this video and can only hope that the Seattle Symphony joins up with 2 Live Crew for “Me So Horny.”
