“Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice – 1990

This week Nate Heath of the NotNerd Podcast kicks it in the studio to speculate on the street cred of Vanilla Ice and discuss his 1990 number one hit “Ice Ice Baby.” This song found its way into the mainstream, blazed up the charts to become the first hip hop song to reach number one, only to become disavowed by fans and artists, and mercilessly mocked for eternity. As the subject of an unprecedented copyright lawsuit, and being under the scrutiny of those who weren’t buying the rappers bad boy image, Vanilla Ice’s career is a long, confusing, and possibly completely made-up tale.
Did Suge Knight really threaten to throw Vanilla Ice off a rooftop? What happened to Vanilla Ice’s rat-tail? What does Amish woodworking have to do with hip hop music? All these questions and more will be answered on this week’s episode of Single File.
