    My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns...hun! Oh to be in 8th grade again.

    In advance of the upcoming 20th anniversary of the original release -that'd be May 7, 1992, scorekeepers!- of "Baby Got Back," his chart-topping multi-platinum Grammy-winning hip-hop celebration of female pulchritude, Seattle-based rap icon (and Sony Music Entertainment/Legacy Recordings artist) Sir Mix-A-Lot is bustin' out his "Baby Got Back" app, the ultimate 21st century booty-based app, exclusively for the iPhone.

    A booty-based app? You don't say?

    Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back" app comes fully-packed with a buttload of hands-on features including the Mix Makeover photo lab, the Ba Dunka Dunk club game, Sir Mix-a-Lot's Booty Calls, a social media Text Mix and more. As a deluxe visual bonus, the "Baby Got Back" app includes the old school but still-hot-and-hilarious "Baby Got Back" music video, which was briefly banned by MTV in 1992.

    The Mix Makeover photo feature allows you to take a new or existing photo and manipulate any aspect that appeals. With the twist of your fingers, you can blow-up and stretch any visual assets--fore and aft, tops or bottoms--to suit individual taste before sharing the results with friends.

    The Ba Dunka Dunk game is a fast-paced romp through a virtual clubland where back and booty rule. The aim is to fill hot pants in motion as you tilt your device from side-to-side, maneuvering the booty girls around obstacles and into the right fit. The better you get, the faster the action.

    On Sir Mix-a-Lot's Booty Calls, you can hear the master get down to business and draw the fine distinctions between Da Onion, Donkey, Switch & Drop, the Hip Gripper, the Palm, the Crash Helmet, or Thong blesser.

    Fans can be part of Sir Mix-a-Lot's posse through the Baby Got Back app's Text Mix feature.

    Originally released in 1992, Sir Mix-a-Lot's single "Baby Got Back" (from his Mack Daddy album on Def American) launched a million parties with its unapologetic and unambiguous rallying opening cry, "I like big butts and I cannot lie....," a statement so strong it cannot be denied. The controversial single spent five weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in the summer '92, sold double platinum in the United States, picked up 1993's Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance and added the phrase "Baby Got Back" to the cultural lexicon.

    The Sir Mix-a-Lot "Baby Got Back" iPhone app is the next step in the evolving legacy of a timeless track that continues to put bottoms on top.

    Other trivia: The song was covered by OC metalcore band Throwdown.

    Does this app excite you?
