Sir-Mix-A-Lot, or the legendary rapper and Seattle dweller Anthony Ray, performed with the Seattle Symphony as part of their Sonic Evolution Project. But when you have Sir-Mix-A-Lot in the house, you know his famous rap anthem “Baby Got Back” has to come on at some point.
According to The USA TODAY, Seattle Symphony Director Ludovic Morlot and Conductor Gabriel Prokofiev made a new song inspired by Sir-Mix-A-Lot called “Posse on Broadway.”
But then Sir-Mix-A-Lot had to get back to what made him global:
“What I want to do now, is 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,” Sir-Mix-A-Lot said. “We will not bite unless you want us to.”
And then a lot of, frankly, hot women (I think, one black) got up out of their seats, got on the stage, and when the Seattle Symphony went to work, they went off.
Where’s Hope Solo?
Especially the cute woman in black who was shaking her butt and rapping.
Everyone wants to know! She’s got a Twitter fan base!
