Can we all appreciate the greatness of the masterpiece “Ice Ice Baby”?
 

 


When I was coming up I used to think this song was corny af, but after listening to it again on an old school rap radio station and watching the video, I realize how dope it is:
-lots of energy
-fun, eccentric dance moves that are both fun to do and hilarious
-unironically good, multi-syllabic rhyme schemes:

To the extreme, I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle

-Had an amazing beat that Ice ended up keeping even though Queen won the case
-Has really good storytelling elements
-Responsible for exposing a lot of the mainstream to hip-hop
-Didn’t use cursing, something unheard of today
-Was written when Vanilla Ice was only SIXTEEN!
-Just an overall catchy, fun tune

No, he wrote it himself when he was 16, he just had to wait until he was 19 to afford to shoot the video for it

Nice song,

Had some very questionable lyrics that made no sense

And Eminem had to come through and cleanse the disaster Ice created. Ice made it hard for other white rappers because labels thought they would be just another vanilla ice. Which was “couldnt rap”.

Eminem came out and made folks look like “hey…. This white boy knows how to RAP RAP” and it became cool to look for white rappers. Everyone wanted them one on the label

If not for Em, labels probably woulda still been thinking white boys are just gonna be another vanilla ice who has no skills and can’t be taken seriously

You’re a weirdo for not being able to like a good song regardless of who made it

Even though I never really liked Eminem’s music like that this is the truth it was like all of a sudden overnight white rappers became more excepted and the stigma of being a white rapper went away.

That was all lies… they just made that up so the dude “chocolate” could get paid.. Mob James admitted it in an interview. He was a homie of suges. They clearly hit a lick..







You think this guy wrote “rolling in my 5.0 with the ragtop down so my “HAIR CAN BLOW””??

Yes, the Queen/Bowie straight sample was unoriginal enough, but obviously most of y'all don't know Vanilla Ice's corny a*s also stole the Black fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha's step song Too Cold for the chorus.

The Alphas have been doing that chant for a long time -- here's a video from School Daze (the movie came out in 1988, 2 years before Vanilla Ice's song).



The cornball could've at least shown some respect and had some Alphas in his video, but nah ... just stole it.

You clearly don't know what a multi syllabic rhyme scheme is moron
