Sir Mix-a-Lot has one word for Nicki Minaj and her recently released “Anaconda” video.
On Wednesday, Minaj dropped the visual for her single which samples Sir Mix-a-Lot’s classic 90’s hit, “Baby Got Back.” In the video, Minaj can be seen bouncing her backside up and down while parading through a jungle. And much like the rest of the world, Sir admitted to watching the video dozens of times before revealing on Twitter that he thoroughly enjoyed every second of it.
“Ok after watching
@NICKIMINAJ Anaconda 37times I only have one word to sum up my feelings. DAMNNNNN!!!!!”
What a compliment coming from the famous rapper himself right? Minaj quickly took to the social media website to respond to the 51-year-old.
“LMFAOOOOO. Life is so crazy. Thank u Sir MixALot. Still influencing us decades later. YouDaMan,” she wrote.
“Anaconda” is the debut single for her forthcoming album, The Pinkprint. As of Thursday morning, the video has been viewed 21,803,279 on Vevo.
