Seattle hip-hop legend Sir Mix-A-Lot is back in Seattle, Fremont to be specific, on February 2&3 at the Nectar Lounge!
Mix-A-Lot parlayed a gonzo tribute to women with large buttocks into hip-hop immortality. But even before he struck crossover gold, Sir Mix-A-Lot was one of rap’s, and Seattle’s, great D.I.Y. success stories. Coming from a city 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.
If your posse’s on Broadway…pick em up and drive em to the Nectar Lounge the first weekend in February to see a true Seattle icon.
