I just can’t get over it. It’s my April Vibe Dingbat.
After recently reporting (ha!) the comeback Tour of Vanilla Ice WITH MC Hammer, the interest I had as a 12 year old has been re-perked.
Turns out there’s some remixes out there. And some bloody good ones.
Vanilla Ice went house. This mix fukn rocks. Granted, I’m a tekno junkie.
Even JT aka Justin Timberlake jumped on the bandwagon, albeit so lamely. Embedding is disabled by request, but thank God, since JT, with exponential production values coming out the proverbial, manages to completely remove all passion from the song. FAIL.
And the bloke still raps live.
Arguably, his cred was lost not by himself but by a million plus paycheck offerred when he was 19.
Anyway it turns out it took another 10 or so years for white rap to emerge properly.
But check out the mashup.
And speaking of mashups… Gunners and Snoop Dogg… shit, it actually works… but only just.
(There you go Angus. Is the countdown clock off the first page now?)
PS Still Not Sorry, Queen.
Oh BTW This is where house is really at.
And really AT…
The destruction of the main page at Tizona’s had to stop. Hence the clips have been put below the fold. BTW, apart from the last three clips, the rest are meant to be very tongue in cheek. Seriously, what kind of a name is ‘Vanilla Ice’??? It’s almost as bad as ‘bingbing’. And to think, Hammer pants were all the rage once. Ahhh, early nineties pop. Such a tragedy. So much so that the record industry got the shits and the next year shat out Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine.
The Eminem/Vanilla Ice mashup now has been visualized. Bet that made you’re days, didn’t it?
