B- album. I don’t know about a revolutionary narrative for Vanilla Ice because, wasn’t House of Pain and Beastie Boys around at the same time, if not earlier? The rhymes were OK. The story telling wasn’t bad, too, but I felt like his skills weren’t too developed and that he was trying too hard to sound like someone he was not, especially on track “I Love You” where he sounded like LL.
Favs: “Hooked,” “Yo Vanilla,” “Go Ill,” “Stop That Train” -I don’t have a fifth although when I was like 4 or 5 I remember singing “Ice Ice Baby” as it played on the radio.
What did you all think of Vanilla Ice when he came out?
