Inextricably associated with his classic hit “Baby Got Back”, Sir Mix-A-Lot’s career has pushed him to hip hop immortality. One of raps greatest D.I.Y. success stories, coming from a city with an almost non-existent hip hop scene, he created his own record label, produced all of his own tracks and made a career for himself.
In 1991 he signed with Rick Rubin’s Def American label, and this coupled with his exaggerated and parodic pimp image carried him to mainstream success. In 1992 he released his album Mack Daddy with his signature hit “Baby Got Back” which went double platinum and peaked at #1 on Billboard. In 1993 he won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.
