Biography

Though pilloried without mercy by critics and music fans alike throughout his career, rapper Vanilla Ice was the first hip-hop artist to score a No. 1 record with his debut album, To the Extreme (1990), which featured his hugely successful signature song, "Ice Ice Baby." The record made him one of the biggest pop music acts in the business for about a year before a tidal wave of negative publicity and critical backlash destroyed his credibility. Ice would spend the next decade attempting to find his own way as an artist while struggling with serious drug and emotional issues. He emerged in the new millennium with secondary identities as a home renovator and occasional reality television star, most notably on "The Surreal Life" (The WB/VH1, 2003-2006). If the music community never fully embraced his newer, tougher-sounding material, Ice seemed to have the last laugh on his detractors by not only surviving his long fallow period but also emerging with his self-esteem intact, which did much to elevate him a degree or two above the one-hit wonder status.
