Sir Mix-a-Lot sat down with VladTV to speak about Nicki Minaj sampling his hit song "Baby Got Back" for her new single "Anaconda." The Seattle native said that he knew about the song through Universal, but added that Nicki personally called him up to share some ideas of what she was going to do with the track.
The rapper also spoke about Nicki's video, calling it the "new and improved" version of the "Baby Got Back" video. Sir Mix-A-Lot also explains that he wasn't able to get the really curvy girls for his video, but says that it's a new era now that "Nicki's in charge."
When asked if he's a Nicki Minaj fan, the "Jump On It" rapper reveals that he's liked her ever since "Did It on 'Em," but adds that the Queens rapper has made him a fan for life after "Anaconda." He attributes his feelings to watching Nicki go hard during the making of the song, and remarks that he would feel the same way if she had sampled his song or not.
