Anthony Ray (1963-), better known by his stage name Sir Mix-A-Lot, is most famous for the One-Hit Wonder song "Baby Got Back". He's also a record producer, and has done a number of other songs.
Fair or not, to many he's become a symbol of what's wrong with rap music, with the misogyny (it's still debated whether the song's point is "women are objects" or "I'm just celebrating my Fetish"... or both), along the bling and fur coats. The song has even been interpreted by at least one (black) feminist as a celebration of women's bodies and an attack on the prevailing beauty standards of the day, and he's not associated with the violence that often plagues gangster rappers.
He also was the narrator in the very short-lived The Watcher, a show in UPN's inaugural season.
