    Rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot had a huge hit in the early '90s with his booty-celebrating anthem "Baby Got Back." Nicki Minaj sampled the song for the modern and millennial era in her new hit "Anaconda," and it gets the originator's stamp of approval.

    "I really like it and it's funny because some people tell me, 'Oh, that's not the meaning of 'Baby Got Back,' because it's not "Baby Got Back!'' Don't get me started on that. But, when I first heard it, I really liked it. I liked the change in feel. She did a lot of things, like at one point she really slowed the track down at half-speed and then went back to full speed. It was pretty fun. It was a cool song."

    He also said that Minaj got in touch and they had a very vibed out conversation.
