Seattle Man’s Cell Number Used to Belong to Sir Mix-A-Lot
A Seattle man named Jonathan Nichols got a new cellphone in 2012, and Verizon gave him a number that was once used by Seattle hip-hop legend Sir Mix-A-Lot. And there's a reason he knows about it.
He's received countless calls and texts intended for Mix. Initially, it was car dealerships, and music that people wanted him to hear, but it wasn't long before he started getting tons of photos of women in bikinis and stuff. Some of them were just sexy, and others were raunchy.
He figured out what was happening on August 12th, Sir Mix-a-Lot's birthday, when his phone was blowing up. When a reporter contacted Mix to tell him about this guy, he said, "Are you serious? That is hilarious. Poor fella."
