    1. Biter. Ripping Queen/Bowie’s “Under Pressure” bassline for your piece of shit song. I hope Hell is especially hot just for you, Ice.

    2. My new desktop background! That stare is intense.

      LT, lighten up. Your attitude is in line with that of RIAA and the major recording labels: sampling is only allowed if it profits us/suits our taste/etc. Remember Weird Al’s “Amish Paradise?” Coolio didn’t consider it “good enough.”

    3. My 2 cents…

      Vanilla Ice made bad music, however, the last time I turned on the radio I was aurally raped by many equally bad artists. Soulja Boy… Vanilla Ice… sounds like names from the same “retard name generator” to me. Vanilla Ice was definitely not alone in making bad music.

      One thing to note is this – he did get rich and fuck a lot of hot women by making his bad music. I would do much worse than making bad music to get the same pay and chicks. Cut the man some slack.

      Ripping off Queen / Bowie… its rap music. There is not a thimble full of musical creativity in rap music. Sampling is simply expected.

      I cannot think of a single rapper that writes good music. The lyrics and rap, sure (it’s debatable, but I will give due credit, it is original and can be good). But the backing music? It will never stand on it’s own; it’s too simple or is a sample-loop. The backing music is just not a priority in Rap.

      I consider this sad, but still a welcome blessing. Thanks to Rap music not being able to stand without the vocals, I will never be tortured by this crap Rap music in elevators and waiting rooms.

      Later.

    4. I’m nearly 100% certain that there were royalty payments made for that bassline, so there shouldn’t be any serious talk about ripping off or stealing.

    5. My favorite Vanilla Ice story is Suge Knight hanging him off a balcony until he signed away whatever rights he had.

    6. I like that song he did with The Bloodhound Gang.

    7. Actually there were no royalty payments.

      Ice’s claim was that he didn’t steal the baseline, because the original goes:

      “bah-bah bum bah-bah banum”

      And his goes:
      “bah-bah bum bah-bah banum tsss”

      With the little drum snare at the end, making it different, so he piggybacked the idea without full on stealing it.

      One of the few things I’d learned from VH1

    8. Mista Rob Van Winkle…

      Actually I kinda like “BOOM”, the song he did with the Bloodhound Gang, if only for the awesome lyrics

      …I’m not Quasimodo, but I still got a hunch
      And like the Jim Jones Gang I’ll take you out with one Punch…

    9. He lives in my area of south Florida, and the local radio station hosts their annual Christmas party at his house, well, mansion, I guess. He performs, some local bands perform, many drunken shenanigans ensue.

      I have to admit, I think it’s pretty damn cool of anybody to open their house up to a few hundred strangers, but for a quasi-celebrity to do it, well, I do give him the tiniest bit of respect.

    10. ack, when you talk about musical creativity in ‘the rap music’ you sound like my grandma.

      Listen to almost anything produced by Dan Nakamura (Automator). There are dozens, maybe hundreds of other examples.

      Now, most rap is crap, I’ll agree. But using samples in music doesn’t make it any less creative or musical. There’s plenty of music ‘made from scratch’ that is crap, too.

      ‘Mixed media’ art is a good analogue. Even if you’re just cutting and gluing, it can be done creatively, or it can suck.

    12. And through all that no one’s noticed he looks like there’s a magic marker up his ass

    13. @Kaze,

      You are correct. I saw that VH1 thing too. He’s a douche.

    14. A magic marker? So that’s why his hair looked like that…

    15. Say what you will Tiki, but you’re wrong about it. Ice ripped the bassline straight from Queen/Bowie’s “Under Pressure”, added one A note in every other pause, and made millions. He also stole the idea for the main focus of the song from a national black fraternity without permission or credit to either Queen/Bowie or Alpha Pi Alpha.

      True, he is a terrible musician as well; this doesn’t merit mentioning, as just about every hip-hop artist to follow him were and are terrible musicians as well. What is worth mentioning is that the “Iceman” is a biter and a fraud. As an actual musician I’m offended that any part of this poser’s music lives on to this day.

    16. I don’t care about his Queen music fiasco, i just want to know why he hasn’t been shot yet?

    19. Yeah, vanilla ice is the only singer to use someone else’s shit…what about cant touch this and super freak? Oh, that’s right…nobody cares about blacks.

    20. There are a gazillion musicians from every genre, who have rehashed, remixed, remade or otherwise butchered older songs. It’s called art. Sometimes it sucks, sometimes it’s great. I don’t understand why people are so quick to denigrate musicians to try to recycle old ideas in new ways. It happens all the time, and in more ways, and by more musicians than a lot of people seem to realize…

    21. It’s called making things better. or what not.
      You can’t put something out there and expect nobody to use that or edit it in some way.

    22. Hey ack, have you ever listened to the Wu Tang Clan?
      Excellent lyrics, and some of their tracks are remixed as instrumentals. Most of the Clan has serious talent. Even if you don’t like some of them, there’s so many different styles being represented that you’re bound to enjoy some of it. I think you suffer from being exposed to too much pop music, and not enough urban poetry.

    23. There’s only a few Wu-Tang hits I’ve liked, but damn do they have a good taste in movies: 36th Chamber and 8 Diagram Pole Fighter have got to be the two best action movies ever made.

    24. “All right stop
      collaborate and listen
      Ice is back with my brand new invention
      Something
      grabs a hold of me tightly
      Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
      Will it ever stop
      yo
      I don’t know
      Turn off the lights
      and I’ll glow
      To the extreme
      I rock a mic like a vandal
      Light up a stage
      and wax a chump like a candle

      Dance
      go rush to the speaker that booms
      I’m killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom
      Deadly
      when I play a dope melody
      Anything less than the best is a felony
      Love it or leave it
      you better gain weight
      You better hit bull’s eye the kid don’t play
      If there was a problem
      yo I’ll solve it
      Check out the hook
      while my DJ revolves it

      Ice, ice, baby
      vanilla
      Ice, ice, baby

      Now that the party is jumping
      With the bass kicked in
      and the vegas are pumpin’
      Quick to the point-to the point no faking
      I’m cooking MC’s like a pound of bacon
      Burning ’em
      if you ain’t quick and nimble
      I go crazy when I hear a cymbal
      And a hi-hat
      with a souped up tempo
      I’m on a roll
      it’s time to go solo
      Rollin’ in my 5.0
      With my rag-top down so my hair can blow
      The girlies on standby
      waving just to say hi
      Did you stop?
      no, I just drove by
      Kept on
      pursuing to the next stop
      I bust a left
      and I’m heading to the next block
      The block was dead
      Yo so I continued
      to A1A
      Beachfront Avenue
      Girls were hot wearing less than bikinis
      Rockman lovers driving Lamborghinis
      Jealous
      ’cause I’m out getting mine
      Shay with a guage and Vanilla with a nine
      Reading
      for the chumps on the wall
      The chumps acting ill
      ’cause they’re so full of eight balls
      Gunshots
      rang out like a bell
      I grabbed my nine
      all I heard were shells
      Falling
      on the concrete real fast
      Jumped in my car
      slammed on the gas
      Bumper to bumper the avenue’s packed
      I’m trying to get away before the jackers jack
      Police on the scene
      you know what I mean
      They passed me up confronted all the dope fiends
      If there was a problem
      yo I’ll solve it
      Check out the hook
      while my DJ revolves it

      Ice, ice, baby
      vanilla
      Ice, ice, baby

      Take heed
      ’cause I’m a lyrical poet
      Miami’s on the scene
      just in case you didn’t know it
      My town
      that created all the bass sound
      Enough to shake and kick holes in the ground
      ‘Cause my style’s like a chemical spill
      Feasible rhymes that you envision and feel
      Conducted and formed
      It’s a hell of a concept
      We make it hype
      and you want to step with this
      Shay plays on the fade
      slice like a ninja
      Cut like a razor blade so fast other DJs say damn
      If my rhyme was a drug
      I’d sell it by the gram
      Keep my composure when it’s time to get loose
      Magnetized by the mic while I kick my juice
      If there was a problem
      yo I’ll solve it
      Check out the hook
      while my DJ revolves it

      Ice, ice, baby
      vanilla
      Ice, ice, baby

      too cold, too cold… “
