Perhaps they were under pressure to do so?

He seemed to be back with a brand new mission and it involved rehabbing foreclosures.

Wrong.  Just wrong.

We all know that Miami is his town.
 
2014-02-19 03:40:05 PM  
Well someone had to thank him for doing a Turtles Kraft Mac & Cheese commercial complete with the Go Ninja theme.

He ended up pretty OK for a gimmick one hit wonder, so good on him.

Isn't that a synonym for "become a socialist/destroy America"? Wellington must not be in a red area.

He's so white.

Black rapper makes money, he blows it on rims.

White rapper makes money, he invests it in real estate.

There's nothing more white than that.

It's weird how he kind of became the anti-Hammer, in that he parlayed becoming a one-hit wonder into something more than destitution.

All right, stop.
Collaborate and listen.
Ice was just named the
Outstanding Citizen.

I've actually watched his show - it's a relatively good quality program considering it is a flip-this-house style show. He seems like a legitimately good guy.

There was another version of the show where he provided assistance to Amish families - that one was pretty good as well, though I suspect that the families that participated weren't hard-line Amish, as they probably wouldn't accept hand-outs, and certainly would object to going on television.

I used to live in Wellington. I find it amusing that the guy they're naming OSOTY has been up on charges for domestic abuse, and owns neither a plane or a polo pony.

Wellington is about 10 miles inland and $10M from Palm Beach.

Bang like a porn star daily and nightly
Will it ever flip?  Yo, I don't know
But check out my seminar, improve your cash flow

Having seen some of his show he's the least crazy thing to come out of Florida.

Although he got ragged *major*...for a couple decades or more.  Man, the shiat that guy took was beyond vitriolic....brutal.

/his crew isn't quite as good technically since Handsome Dan left, that dude is sharp.

My aunt lives in his neighborhood and has run into him from time to time and from what she has told me he is a nice guy.

I had to go to youtube to see this.  Wow, that's some pretty ingenious marketing right there.  Kids who saw that movie are hitting their 30's with kids.  The kid is looking V ice like who the fark is he?  And mom is doing the whitest dance in isle 6.  I love it.

Wow, Angelfire.

Me too, there's also this "behind the scenes" interview with him:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISlupo4tlpY#t=63
He seems to be doing pretty well for himself. I wonder if the tattoo is real or if they're just joking around for the video

Actually from the way she describes Rob, he seems kind of vanilla.

That's great.  I'm glad he pulled out of that train wreck that was his life for so long.

This seems surprisingly reasonable for something with the Florida tag attached to it.

Awesome. I was going to make an attempt at a rhyme, but I can't compete with this.

That's racist, slick.

This must really take some of the sting out of going through life as Vanilla Ice.

but it takes him so long to get there, because he'll only take A1A beachfront avenue where the  Girls were hot wearing less than bikinis andRockman lovers were driving Lamborghinis

I just saw that! But I didn't notice any Vanilla Ice in it. In fact I was thinking "where the hell is Vanilla Ice or the turtles?!"
 
2014-02-19 08:55:15 PM  
I wondered if this was somewhere in Palm Beach County. I was eating at the Crazy Buffet down there and he came in and some of the customers were whispering stuff like "ooh its vanilla ice" and such. Didnt know he lived in Wellington.

/crazy buffet is a chinese/sushi buffet fwiw
