For a few years, the Iowa State Fair was bringing in some interesting nostalgic hip hop acts: Vanilla Ice, Tone Loc, The Ying Yang Twins and Coolio all played free stages, but for the last few years hip hop has been absent.
In 2015 it's back in a big way, with rear end enthusiast Sir Mix-A-Lot performing on Aug. 20. The rapper is best known for his hit "Baby Got Back," and for that hit being featured in Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda."
It's a free show, through the stage is still too be announced. He joins a free stage lineup that includes Lita Ford, Jamie Lynn Spears, Big Smo (another hip hop act), Hairball, Here Come The Mummies and others.
