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 gangster rappers.

He also was the narrator in the very short-lived ''The Watcher'', a show in Creator/{{UPN}}'s inaugural season.

But my homey P.O.B. cold sprayed the boy with mace\\
Cuz I never liked a punk who beat up on his girl..."
