Sir Mix-A-Lot, best known for his 1992 hit "Baby Got Back," is reinventing himself and rundown homes in 2018.
The Grammy award-winning entertainer, whose real name is Anthony Ray, is launching a one-hour special on the DIY Network called Sir Mix-A-Lot's House Remix on June 30. According to the network, Ray wants the world to know that he's "not just a rapper," and so he plans to revamp his image by showcasing his skills as a real estate expert.
"The one-hour special will feature Sir Mix-A-Lot as he buys, transforms, and flips a rundown home in his beloved Seattle hometown," the release states. "Seattle is my home, and it’s booming," Rays adds. "It’s a music city, a tech hub and the hottest real estate market in the country.”
Some of the changes Ray plans to make to the Seattle property are to open up the main level, add a kitchen, incorporates two new bathrooms, and create a spacious entertainment room, transforming the house into a "tech-savvy smart home."
The show is a slight departure from how Ray first rose to prominence with "Baby Got Back," which Nicki Minaj resurfaced by using it as a sample in her single, "Anaconda," in 2014. The move reportedly earned Ray millions in royalties.
"I just look at my lifestyle and where it's been since 1992, and it hasn't fallen off," Sir Mix-A-Lot told Vlad TV in 2014, adding that "Baby Got Back" made over $100 million. Yep, that kind of money can buy a lot of houses.
Sir Mix-A-Lot's House Remix premieres Saturday, June 30, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
