Vanilla Ice -- word to ya mutha -- was a beloved white rapper in the early '90s. Check those groans and eye rolls at the door, kids. Don't care what a washed-up rapper has to say about the current crop of teenage dreams like Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik...
For a guy who has often been mocked in the 20-plus years since 'Ice Ice Baby,' Vanilla Ice has a good sense of humor. Ice stars in a new comedic video in which he pretends to move to the L.A. neighborhood of Echo Park to try to win over hipsters with his reinvented indie rock sound.
Vanilla Ice, of all people, said he thinks that Justin Bieber will be "forgotten" within a few years -- but the 'Ice Ice Baby' rapper is now backing down from his controversial comments, saying he was just trying to give the teen pop star advice.
Since we last heard from 8-year-old YouTube rap star MattyB, he's apparently learned to drive! Oh, and he became best buds with Vanilla Ice, too. In his latest rap overdub, the determined shortstack rapper tackles the 1990 hit, 'Ice Ice Baby,' alongside Mr. Vanilla himself.
We can't make this stuff up. 'Ice Ice Baby' rapper Vanilla Ice is still swinging from pop culture's short hairs. According to Us magazine, the former musician-turned-home-remodeling-reality-show star is becoming a pantomime.
