Robert “Vanilla Ice” Van Winkle was one of the first waves of rap artists to gain worldwide fame, and remains a culture icon who is often referenced in today’s most popular television shows, movies and songs.

That same year, the song topped the Australian, Dutch, Irish, New Zealand and UK charts, which helped diversify hip hop by introducing it to a worldwide, mainstream audience.
Van Winkle’s current live performances feature a mix of newer, rock-influenced material and old school hip hop. He signed with Psychopathic Records in May 2011 and is scheduled to release his latest album WTF – Wisdom, Tenacity & Focus sometime this year.
