No one likes Mondays, but these two new bizarre rap videos just might make your day.

Sir Mix-a-Lot performs with the Seattle Symphony

You've never seen "Baby Got Back" like this. Seattle native Sir Mix-a-Lot took the stage at Benaroya Hall on Friday to perform two of his hit songs with the Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.

For "Baby Got Back," Mix-a-Lot got the crowd involved, asking women to join him onstage to dance.

Before performing the song, Mix-a-Lot admitted that this was "something you really should not do," but joked that, "since tonight is 'orchestral movement from the hood' night," so he made an exception.

This was all part of Seattle Symphony's Sonic Evolution project, which combines the Symphony with Seattle's reputation as being the launching pad for a lot of popular music careers.

Composer Gabriel Prokofiev orchestrated two of Mix-a-Lot's famous hit songs, and also wrote a brand new composition inspired by the rapper himself.

 Psy releases new music video featuring Snoop Dogg

Psy's viral hit "Gangnam Style" reached 2 billion views recently, but Psy wasn't ready to stay out of the spotlight just yet. Almost two years after "Gangnam Style" was released, the Korean pop artist has a new music video, this time featuring Snoop Dogg.

The unlikely duo's new song is called "Hangover," and in it, the two sing and rap about, appropriately, getting drunk and being hungover.

They sing: "Party's over, it ain't over. Try to make a bad memory over and over."

In true Psy fashion, the music video, released on Sunday night, is very odd, starting with Psy vomiting in a toilet. After that, Psy and Snoop Dogg brush their teeth, take shots, dance, and do other random things that you have to see for yourself. The video is 5 minutes long, but it is definitely worth it.
