* BiggerIsBetterInBed: The infamous "anaconda" line from that one song (three guesses and the first two don't count). Notably [[{{Sampling}} sampled]] for Music/NickiMinaj's "Anaconda".



* UsefulNotes/{{Homophobia}}: Although "Baby Got Back" was very popular of the gay community, most fans were horrified to hear Mix-A-Lot shouting "Punk ass, cake, faggot ass nigga!" in "Seatle Ain't Bullshittin'".

Anthony Ray (1963-), better known by his stage name '''Sir Mix-a-Lot''', is most famous for the OneHitWonder song "Baby Got Back". He's also a record producer, and has done a number of other songs. He's notable because, unlike most other rappers from the era, he's not associated with the violence that often plagues gangsta rappers.
