Wednesday’s Way-Back-Play-Back featuring “Vanilla Ice.” [VIDEO]
You love this song and crank it up every time its played on the radio. This Wednesday we put the spotlight on “Vanilla Ice.” Ice was the first rapper (white or black) to top the Billboard Charts. His debut label album “To The Extreme” became the fastest selling hip hop / rap album of all time and stayed on top of the Billboard 200 for sixteen weeks in 1990-91, eventually selling over 11 million copies.
Ice hasn’t had much success on the Billboard charts since the early 90’s but he continues to tour today and sells out most of the venues he plays. He’s had stints on various reality shows over the years including “The Surreal Life” and “The Vanilla Ice Project.” Ice or Rob Van Winkle as his friends call him, has two American Music Awards and Peoples Choice Award for Best New Song under his belt. He was also nominated for a Grammy for Best Solo Rap Performance for “Ice Ice Baby.”
