Sir Mix A Lot Performed Baby Got Bach Back with the Seattle Symphony

Sadly, Becky was not in attendance.

If for some reason you needed proof that Sir Mix-a-Lot’s love letter to the derriere has become a respected cultural touchstone, here it is! This past weekend the poet of the posterior performed Baby Got Back with the Seattle Symphony, and damn…he did not have to ask for volunteer dancers twice.

The classic ass anthem was arranged by Gabriel Prokofiev (no word yet on how he feels about round things in his face) and was performed as part of Seattle’s Sonic Evolution series, which commissions orchestrations of iconic songs and is all about beggin’ for pieces of that bubble.
