Technotronic is a Belgian Techno band formed by Jo Bogaert in the late eighties. He currently lives in Port St. He was cast in the film "The Helix...Loaded," a parody of The Matrix. This brought some interest in him from the public, and a website, www.vanillaice.com, was launched. In 2004, Vanilla Ice starred in the second season of The Surreal Life on The WB.
His latest album was 2001's Bipolar, a nu metal-style record that did little to rekindle public interest. The album quickly fell off the charts, as did 1998's Hard to Swallow (see 1998 in music), which used a new gangsta rap sound and image. Ice returned to music in 1994 (see 1994 in music) with Mind Blowin', which adopted a brand new, Cypress Hill-influenced sound. He also had performed in the 1991 movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.
For his performance, Ice won the "Worst New Star" award at the 1991 Golden Raspberry Awards. The film was a failure commercially and critically, as he had been overexposed by the time it was released. "Ice Ice Baby" topped the charts beginning late 1990 (see 1990 in music), and he began filming Cool as Ice. He was also, notably, one of the few famous white rappers.
He eventually faced legal problems, as "Ice Ice Baby" sampled the Queen and David Bowie collaboration "Under Pressure" without permission. Robert Van Winkle (born October 31, 1968), better known as Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper, known today for the single "Ice Ice Baby" and the controversy that ensued after it became known that his hardcore gangsta past was entirely manufactured to drive up sales of the single and album, To the Extreme.
