The "My Posse's On Broadway" Tour

Sir Mix-A-Lot and Posse on the corner of John and Broadway 
with Dick's Drive-In lit up in back, on the left.

From the 1988 Debut Album, Swass

Me and Kid Sensation and that home away from home
In the Black Benz Limo with the cellular phone
I'm callin' up the posse it's time to get rippin'
The freaks a need a sunroof to keep you sucka's trippin'
Everybody's lookin' if you're jealous turn around
The AMG kit keeps us closer to the ground
we're gettin' good grip from the 50 series tires
the Alpine's bumpin' but I need the volume higher
cause the 808 kick drum makes the girlies get dumb
we're rollin' Rainier, and the jealous wanna get some

Rainier and Martin Luther King. Gang territory line.

Every time we do, the sucka M.C.'s wanna battle
I'm the man they love to hate, the J.R. Ewing of Seattle
Picked up the posse on 23rd and Jackson
23rd and Jackson. Ignore the crack heads begging for money.

 headed for the strip, yes we're lookin' for some action
the limo's kinda crowded, the whole car was leanin' back
Maharaji's watchin' T.V. with two girlies on his lap
On Martin Luther King...the set looks kinda dead


 
Martin Luther King and Graham

we need a new street so posse move ahead
we all look kinda' SWASS the crew you can't forget
the Mix-a-lot posse co' rippin' up the set

My posse's on Broadway

My posse's on Broadway (posse up)
My posse's on Broadway
My posse's on Broadway


Ahhhh Rrrollin' with my posse we're gettin' kinda' bored
there's not another posse with more points scored
we don't walk around like criminals or flex like big gorillas
my homeboy Kid Sensation is the teenage lady killa'
Maharaji's on the def side dancin' like a freak
Rapper Maharaji "Maha" on the left.
 
the girlies see his booty and their knees get weak
Larry is the white guy people think he's funny
a real estate investa' who makes a lot of money
Mix-A-Lots manager, Larry Serrin is on the left.

Clockin' lots of dollas' we all got gold
cruzin' in the Benz ain't got no place to go
wheelin' 23rd we saw nuthin' but thugs
the girlies was too skinny from smokin' all them drugs
cause the rock man got 'em and their butts just dropped
the freaks looked depressed 'cause the Benz won't stop
at 23rd and Union the driver broke left
23rd and Union, where the driver broke left.

  Kevin shouted Broadway it's time to get def
my girl blew me a kiss, she said I was the best
she's lookin' mighty freaky in her black silk dress
the closer that we get, the crazier that I feel
the posse's on Broadway it's time to get ill


 
Broadway and Union. You can see in the video for the song that 
they approached from the right and took a right onto Broadway 
and headed north.

My Posse's on Broadway.........(chorus)

Crusin Broadway and my wheels spin slow
Rollin with your posse is the only way to go
The girlies by the college was lookin' for a ride


   Girlies in front of the Broadway Performance Hall at
 Seattle Central Community College on Broadway and Pine. 
 
And a recent shot at the college.

We tried to pick em up but we had no room inside
We put em on the trunk we put em on the hood
Some sat up with the driver they made him feel good
The posse's gettin' bigger there's much too many freaks
My muffler is draggin' my suspensions gettin' weak
Now the freaks are gettin' hungry in Mix A Lot's treatin'
We stopped at Taco Bell for some Mexican eatin'
Former Taco Bell at Broadway and Mercer. Condos are there now.
 
But Taco Bell was closed the girls was on my tip
They said go back the other way we'll stop and eat at Dick's
Dick's is the place where the cool hang out
Dick's Drive-In at 115 E. Broadway.
 
The swass like to play and the rich flaunt clout
Posse to the burger stand so big we walk in twos
Were gettin' dirty looks from those other sucka crews
Kid Sensation dropped a 20 and didn't even miss it
Now known as Xola Malik, he lives in Tacoma and writes sports
 teams jingles. He also let Ken Griffey, Jr. rap on his 1992 song 
"The Way I Swing."

this skeezer from anotha crew she picked it up and kissed it
Her boyfriend's illin' he went to slap her face
My homeboy PLD cold sprayed the boy with mace
Cus I never liked a punk who beat up on his girl
If you don't have game then let her leave your world
We took the girl with us
With him she rode the bus
She gave the boy the finger and the sucka starts to cuss
Boy I got a def posse you got a bunch a dudes
You're broke cold crying about the rock man blues
Ya beat up on your girl and now you're all upset
She's with the Mix A Lot posse on the Broadway set
