Sir Mix-A-Lot: Chief Boot Knocka (American)

Chuck Eddy, Spin, August 1994

SIR MIX-A-LOT blew it! On his new album, he says he's trying to make Tipper Gore and Rush Limbaugh restless, but he leaves out Reverend Calvin Butts, the Harlem Baptist minister who ran over rap CDs with a steamroller last year (and who has fought cigarette ads in the black community — Butts vs. butts, get it?). Sir Mix should never turn down opportunities to talk about Butts!
