You've never quite seen "Baby Got Back" performed like this.

Rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot performed his iconic hit with the Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle, turning the show into one unlike any other.

For his hit tune, the rapper called upon the women in the audience to come up on the stage and help him perform.

"What I want to do now is something you really should not do, but since tonight is 'orchestral movements from the hood' night, I'm going to leave some of this open, if a couple of ladies would like to get up on the stage," he said, before launching into his song. "We will not bite unless you want us to."

A group from the audience broke down to the popular '90s hit—quite a sight to see in front of the musicians holding their classical instruments. The symphony tweeted a picture of the performance, saying that he "blew the roof off."
