MISSOULA - Missoula enjoys its country and bluegrass music, but Thursday night, two platinum selling rappers are in town.
Both Macklemore and Sir Mix-a-lot are performing Thursday night, just three hours apart. Both rappers are from Seattle and coincidentally booked shows in Missoula.
Macklemore will be performing at the Adams Center at 7 p.m. Thursday night while Sir-Mix-Alot's show kicks off shortly after, at the Top Hat around 10 p.m.
We met Sir-Mix-A-Lot at a local radio station. He's best known for his infamous hit song "Baby got Back". This is his first show in Missoula, on the same night as Macklemore.
"It's kind of weird cuz when I found out that we were playing the same night as Mack, I'm like um...did somebody make a mistake? Cuz dude is hot! We playin' at the same time, it be like my mom will be the only one there right? But nah, the way I see it they timing it with this thing, we'll have a ball! And our thing is almost sold out too so we're gonna have a good time," said Mix-A-Lot.
He says he is also coming out with his other album for this first time in 15 years.
Macklemore's show is open to all ages, Sir-Mix-a-lot's show is only 18 and up.
