Little known facts: Sir Mix-a-Lot kicked off his career repping his hometown of Seattle, not extolling the virtues of large butts. He paints a vivid picture of a city most don't associate with hip-hop, describing everything from a wealthy real estate investor to a Taco Bell. Next time you're trying to impress a girl, mention that you prefer Mix-a-Lot's deep cuts, then invite her to cruise in your "black Benz limo with tha cellular phone." Works every single time.
