And Sir Mix-a-Lot was among the viewers as he officially weighed in on the clip for the song, which samples his ‘90’s classic “Baby Got Back.”
“Ok after watching @NICKIMINAJ Anaconda 37times I only have one word to sum up my feelings. DAMNNNNN!!!!!” the approving Mix-a-Lot expressed on Twitter.
Minaj’s backside is on full display in the “Anaconda” video, which shows her bouncing her moneymaker up and down while parading through a jungle. Upon getting the 51-year-old rapper’s co-sign, Minaj took to Twitter to show her appreciation for Mix-a-Lot.
“LMFAOOOOO. Life is so crazy. Thank u Sir MixALot. Still influencing us decades later. YouDaMan,” she tweeted.
“Anaconda” is the debut single for Minaj’s forthcoming album, “The Pinkprint.”
