An unlikely duo joined forces to perform a classic 90s hit on June 7. Sir Mix-a-Lot and the Seattle Symphony gave a must-see performance of ‘Baby Got Back’ during a concert in Seattle, and the rapper even invited dozens of ladies on stage to dance to the sexy song! WATCH!
Anthony Ray, 50, better known as Sir Mix-a-Lot, joined the Seattle Symphony on stage to perform his biggest hit during the group’s June 7 concert in Seattle. Things got even more wild when the “Baby Got Back” rapper invited women on stage to dance along to the performance in their symphony attire!
Seattle Symphony & Sir Mix-A-Lot: ‘Baby Got Back’ Hilarious Performance
The Seattle Symphony ditched its classical sound and took a trip back in time to the 90s to perform Sir Mix-a-Lot’s ode to backsides, “Baby Got Back.” The rapper’s debut with the group turned the concert into a dance party with dozens of women. We bet that was a sight to see!
Before Sir Mix-a-Lot began to sing, he told the crowd, “Something you really should not do, but since tonight is orchestral movements from the hood night, I’m going to leave some of this open if a couple of ladies would like to get up on the stage.”
In the video, dozens of women can be seen making a beeline for the stage. There was one woman — she wore a black dress, glasses and a green necklace — who had some serious dance moves! The video, which currently has more than 630,000 views on YouTube, is hilarious!
London-based composer Gabriel Prokofiev orchestrated “Baby Got Back,” as well as Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Posse on Broadway.” According to his blog, Gabriel thought that the rapper was “the most interesting and exciting.”
Seattle Symphony’s Sonic Evolution Series
Sir Mix-A-Lot’s appearance was a part of the Seattle Symphony’s Sonic Evolution series, which commissions orchestral work inspired by Seattle’s music icons. Sonic Evolution celebrated the past, present and future of music and it was inspired by Sir Mix-a-Lot, Bill Frisell and Ray Charles.
