Sir Mix-A-Lot Has One Word for Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Video

Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda"

Nicki Minaj's video for "Anaconda," released August 2014.

And that word is: 'DAMNNNNN!!!!!!'

Nicki Minaj is spreading the good word of Sir Mix-A-Lot's size-matters 1992 megahit "Baby Got Back" with her latest single "Anaconda," and her just-released video for the track takes things to a whole new level.

Here's Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Video With Cartoon Anacondas

No one knows this better than Mix-A-Lot himself, who took to Twitter on Wednesday (Aug. 20) to praise Minaj on a job well done – and let her know just how many times he's had the video on repeat.

When "Anaconda" -- which samples the classic track and borrows some of the rapper's vocals -- was first released in early August, Mix told MTV News that Minaj should make a 2014 version of the once-controversial "Baby Got Back" video. "She can direct it, be in it, tell me who else to put in it. Whatever she wants," he said at the time. "That girl is incredible."

Well, it's not quite a remake, but it seems like Mix-A-Lot's OK with that.
