Sir Mix-a-Lot is the rare rap artist whose style is so distinctive that even a hip-hop dabbler can name that rapper within a couple of notes. Whether it's his semi-singing rap delivery or his trademark lashing beats, he put Seattle on the rap map with his distinguished sound.
Mix--who wrote, mixed, arranged, engineered and produced--has created an album that incorporates more '70s funk than his three earlier efforts. Compliments of Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and a Bootsy Collins sample, "Sleepin' Wit My Fonk" includes one of the year's heaviest, grooviest bass lines. Best known for his big booty opus "Baby Got Back," Mix maintains his love of the female anatomy--always more schoolboy horny than offensive--on the title song.
