August 12th – Sir Mix-A-Lot was born Anthony Ray in Seattle, Washington, on this day in 1963.
In 1986, Sir Mix-A-Lot started a record label called Nastymix Records with his DJ, Nasty Nes.
He released his platinum selling debut album, “Swass”, on Nastymix in 1988. “Swass” would feature the hit singles “Posse On Broadway” and a hip-hop re-make of the Black Sabbath classic “Iron Man” featuring San Francisco metal outfit Metal Church. The title track would be sampled by The Pussycat Dolls on their 2005 smash hit “Don’t Cha” (featuring Busta Rhymes).
Sir Mix-A-Lot released his sophomore set “Seminar” in1989, also on Nastymix before signing with Rick Rubin’s Def American Records.
In 1992, Def American released his multi-platinum third album “Mack Daddy”, which spawned the huge number one monster hit single “Baby Got Back.” “Baby Got Back” as a single sold over two million copies and won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance. The video became an MTV staple.
Sir Mix-A-Lot has released three more albums to date; 1994’s Chief Boot Knocka”, 1996’s “Return Of The Bumpasaurus” and 2003’s “Daddy’s Home.”
In 2010, Sir Mix-A-Lot released a new single and its accompanying video called “Carz”, which to date has had over a million views on You Tube. “Carz” is from a forthcoming album entitled “Dun 4Got About Mix” on his own Rhyme Cartel label.
Sir Mix-A-Lot is also currently producing new music for artists such as Outtasite, Tomeka Williams and E-Dawg on Rhyme Cartel as well.
Sir Mix-A-Lot has also stayed busy as an actor and narrator in television and film with appearances or narration on “The Simpsons”, “Wheedle’s Groove” and “The Watch.”
