Sir Mix-A-Lot Vancouver Show 2014

Dec 19 2017, 8:34 pm

Before there was Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj or even Iggy Izalea, this man made the juicy double famous. Sir Mix-A-Lot parlayed a gonzo tribute to women with large butts into hip-hop immortality.

But even before he struck crossover gold, Sir Mix-A-Lot was one of raps great D.I.Y. success stories. Coming from Seattle with barely any hip-hop scene to speak of, Mix-A-Lot co-founded his own record label, promoted his music himself, produced all his own tracks, and essentially pulled himself up by the proverbial American bootstraps.

Even before Baby Got Back, Mix-A-Lot was a platinum-selling album artist with a strong following in the hip-hop community, known for bouncy, danceable, bass-heavy tracks indebted to old-school electro. However, it took signing with Rick Rubins Def American label coupled with an exaggerated, parodic pimp image to carry him into the mainstream and now he lands in Vancouver for what will be a must see for hip-hops in the city.
