Daily SAll-Musician......?

Vanilla Ice.

Just chew on that for a moment.

Do those words bother you? Inspire you?(Lord, I hope not) Do those words invite you to hearken back to a simpler time?

For me the third is certainly the case.

To me, Rob Van Winkle represents my childhood: white and possessing zero street cred. Perhaps that's why his star rose so fast. Or perhaps it's because he sampled one of the finest bass lines ever for his big hit "Ice Ice Baby."

Regardless, Vanilla Ice is a 90s icon. For better or worse.


Mr. Ice's Opus

His only other "hit"

In my opinion, VI's greatest work, from the 1991 film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze, one of my favorites
