You might have already heard about former El Pasoan Jonathan Nichols in news headlines this week. That’s because he got 90’s rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot’s old phone number at a Verizon store a few years ago. Mr. Anthony Ray a.k.a Sir-Mix-a-Lot is world famous for his song “Baby Got Back.” I found Jonathan on Facebook a few days ago but he did not return my message. I’m sure he’s really busy with interviews and appearances with the BBC, The Seattle Times and maybe even the Ellen Degeneres show! Come to think of it, I think I knew him back when I was a student at New Mexico State 11 years ago. I’m not too sure though. I’m not even sure if he attended NMSU but he kind of looks familiar. His last name also sounds familiar to me.
Jonathan participated in a radio interview on El Paso’s Power 102 FM on Thursday morning. In the story below, Jonathan describes the racy photos and texts he’s received from women who thought they were reaching Sir Mix-a-Lot. He received calls and texts to go test drive luxurious cars. Jonathan was constantly being invited to VIP events. He didn’t accept the offers because he’s an attorney with Magnolia and Associates in the Seattle area.
