You can't keep King Vanilla down. Dallas native Rob Van Winkle continues to draw large crowds who yearn to hear "Ice Ice Baby" and "Play That Funky Music" over and over again. Personally, we really want to hear "Ninja Rap" from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze soundtrack, because somehow when we were eight years old it was the most badass thing we had ever seen or heard. As the years have progressed, Ice has become more of a pop-culture treasure than the pop-rapper he once was, guesting on reality shows and various commercials lampooning his questionable musical past. He tours and plays in front of packed nostalgia-drunk houses ever ready to relive the early '90s and their own fashion blunders.
