"Baby Got Back" is a 1992 hip-hop song by Sir Mix-a-Lot. The song famously starts with a discussion between two valley girls (voiced by Katherine Reynolds), with one girl remarking to the other "Oh my God, Becky! Look at her butt! It is so big." At the time of its original release, the song caused a minor controversy with its outspoken and blatantly sexual lyrics on the female anatomy, and the video was briefly banned by MTV[1]. However, it has remained very popular over time. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...
