Sir Mix-A-Lot likes big butts. This, we know to be the truth.

Hereâ€™s the deal, though: you can be a T man, or an A man. You canâ€™t be both, Sir Mix-A-Lot. Thatâ€™s why it rang false, or pandering, or brutalizing his legacy, when in 1994, as the follow-up to â€œBaby Got Backâ€ and Mac Daddy, Sir Mix-A-Lot released â€œPut â€˜Em on the Glass,â€ a song inconceivably and unconscionably composed in praise of boobs.
Decidedly more street and crude, â€œPut â€˜Em on the Glassâ€ lacks all of the goofy humor of the song and asstastic video for the #1 hit â€œBaby Got Back.â€ We just werenâ€™t interestedâ€”or simply refused to believe itâ€”when with this song, Sir Mix-A-Lot claimed to be more than just an ass man. Come on, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, of course youâ€™re just an ass-man. Youâ€™re the assman. Youâ€™re the chief boot knocka! Iâ€™m pretty sure thatâ€™s what he was knighted for, his devotion to the defense of the assery of the Queenâ€™s realm.

â€œPut â€˜Em on the Glassâ€ charted nowhereâ€”not the Hot 100, not the R&B chart, not the dance chart, not nothing.
