If Sir Mix-a-Lot is known for one thing, it's his love of booties! Reigning ass queen Nicki Minaj is a huge fan of the "Baby Got Back" musician, even sampling the 1992 single for her hit, "Anaconda." As it turns out, the admiration is mutual!

In a Reddit AMA this weekend, Sir Mix-a-Lot answered questions on the track, expressing a love for Minaj and, of course, big booties. "I like the song, i think it's fun. She has 180something million views right now, and I think I sucked up at least 2 million myself," he wrote. "It's amazing how people—I guess maybe because they're not in the industry—but how people think I should be mad about the song. I think it's cool, she took part of the song, she made a Nicki Minaj song. I love the track, I have fun listening to the track, it's crazy as hell, and for a guy who likes butts, how can i look at the video and say I don't like it? I say more power to it. Go Nicki Go!"

He also shared that he loves being the "guy with the song about big butts," instead of "the guy with the spinning skills." He wrote, "It doesn't bother me at all. I started out as a DJ, and realized, real quickly, that my hands weren't as fast as some of these other DJs, so I figured out that I had to do something else in hip hop culture. Be who you are, and let other people figure it out for themselves, that's the way I live." Too true!
