Composer Gabriel Prokofiev takes inspiration from the rapper for Sonic Evolution series
In an interview with The Quietus, Prokofiev described the work and the influence he took from the good Sir Mix. “I’m orchestrating two of his most famous hits, and he’s actually going to rap on stage with orchestra. He’s got this rap persona but in reality he’s the softest; he’s only interested in mixing. His most famous hit is ‘Baby Got Back’ which starts, ‘I like Big Butts…’ and so I’m doing a new piece based on the rhythms of his raps.”
