Sir Mix-A-Lot And His Anaconda Are Fans Of Nicki Sampling ‘Baby Got Back’

The 'Baby Got Back' MC tells some of the back story to Nicki's new single.

Nicki Minaj’s new single, “Anaconda,” has a bit of a musical forefather in the form of “Baby Got Back.” The ubiquitous 1992 hit from Sir Mix-A-Lot is sampled in the beat for the Young Money rapper’s new song, which dropped on Monday (August 4), and some of his iconic lines — “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, hun;” “Little in the middle but she got much back;” “Oh my gosh, look at her butt” — are used throughout.
“Initially, it was more the music, and she was trying to weigh out a chorus,” Sir Mix-A-Lot told MTV News, adding that her managers at first reached out asking to sample the song, and he and Universal cleared the move. “Next thing I knew, she was feeling good about it. And the ‘Anaconda’ version, I never heard until she was done; I heard it with everybody else.”
