After a Seattle law student started receiving strange calls and texts, he realized his new phone number used to belong to Sir Mix-A-Lot.By Grant Suneson | January 12, 2016
We’ve all been on the receiving end of an occasional text or call from the wrong number, but when Seattle University law student Jonathan Nichols started getting calls from Ferrari dealerships and receiving raunchy texts, he knew something was up.
He eventually realized his phone was "blowing up off the hook" because people were trying to reach Anthony Ray, better known as Seattle rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot. (Video via Rhyme Cartel Records)
Turns out, Verizon gave Ray’s old number to Nichols after the hip-hop icon switched phone numbers, but plenty of Mix’s acquaintances didn’t get the memo.
