He found major mainstream success, but his success lasted only about one year, and his rapid fall from popularity remains one of the most notorious in American music of recent decades. Though Van Winkle has continued making music, he has yet to recapture anything approaching the level of mainstream success which he once enjoyed.

Career

Early life

Van Winkle was born at Baylor Hospital to Camilla Beth Van Winkle (née Dickerson), a secretary and part-time private music teacher, and Dallas-born William Basil Van Winkle[1], who left the family when Rob was four years old. The French word née (feminine) or né (masculine) (or the English word nee) is still commonly used in some newspapers when mentioning the maiden name of a woman in engagement or wedding announcements. ...


Van Winkle attended R. L. Turner High School in Carrollton, a suburb of Dallas, but dropped out at the age of sixteen. He became interested in breakdancing. Practicing on cardboard in his early teen years, he earned the nickname "Vanilla Ice."[2] In the late 1980s, Van Winkle was the main attraction of many predominantly black local clubs with his freestyle rapping and dancing. He and his group of friends, consisting of Floyd "DJ Earthquake" Brown and several dancers, opened shows for rap heavyweights Public Enemy and M.C. Hammer. R. L. Turner High School is a secondary school located in Carrollton, Texas, United States. ...

Early Life MC Hammer was born in Oakland, California. ...


In 1989, Van Winkle was represented by Jay King of Dallas as part of the rap group Vanilla Ice, Chante, Ambiance, LaRue and New Choice.[3] Van Winkle's first foray into the music industry was the little-known album Hooked, released in 1989 on Atlanta-based independent label Ichiban Records. It sold about 48,000 copies, successful for an independent release, though Hooked is nowadays considered a collector's item among fans due to its limited production. Hooked is the debut album by American rapper Vanilla Ice, released in 1989 (see 1989 in music). ... In popular music, indie music (from independent) is any of a number of genres, scenes, subcultures and stylistic and cultural attributes, characterised by perceived independence from commercial pop music and mainstream culture and an autonomous, do-it-yourself (DIY) approach. ...


His single from the record, "Play that Funky Music," failed to catch on with listeners, and both Van Winkle and the album remained in obscurity until a Georgia DJ decided to flip the twelve-inch single and play the B-side, which was "Ice Ice Baby," a track about Van Winkle's rhyming skills, the Miami street scene, and a gunfight on A1A/Beachfront Avenue. The virtual overnight success of the single was enough for SBK Records to sign Van Winkle and buy the rights to the song for $300,000. In recorded music, the terms A-side and B-side refer to the two sides of 7 inch vinyl records on which singles have been released since the 1950s. ...

Mainstream success and failure (1990-1993)

SBK released Van Winkle's next album, 1990's To the Extreme, which was basically a repackaging of Hooked, as it consisted mainly of new versions of the same songs. Van Winkle's manager and financier, Tommy Quon, chose a limited release for the single, which nonetheless became the first rap single to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.[4] SBK rushed Van Winkle onto the road to promote the album, with a sixteen-year-old Alanis Morissette as his opening act. To the Extreme was not released on vinyl so that fans bought the pricier CD instead, therefore becoming the first #1 album in the U.S. without a vinyl counterpart release; it went on to sell over 11 million copies. On November 1, 1990, To the Extreme ended M.C. Hammer's sixteen-week run at the top of the Billboard Top 200 en route to serving a sixteen-week stay of its own.

Van Winkle's success also brought legal and personal problems. "Ice Ice Baby" sampled the 1981 Queen and David Bowie collaboration "Under Pressure" without permission, acknowledging credit or paying royalties. There was no public court case over the issue, but the copyright holders of "Under Pressure" threatened suit and settled out of court with Van Winkle for an undisclosed sum. Van Winkle later stated "What happened is I was trying not to get sued and it didn't work. So yeah, they're the same songs, in case you were wondering."[5] Ice Ice Baby is rapper Vanilla Ices most famous and popular song, released from his second album To The Extreme. ...

Meanwhile, Van Winkle's debut single, "Play That Funky Music," sampled the 1976 Wild Cherry hit of the same name; however, Wild Cherry singer-guitarist Rob Parissi was not credited as the writer of Van Winkle's version of the song, which was instead credited to Ice and DJ Earthquake.[7] According to a interview for VH1's 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders in 2002, Parissi called his local record store and asked if he was credited as a writer on Play That Funky Music; they told him no.[8] Later he was awarded $500,000 in damages.

In 1991, the biography Ice by Ice: The Vanilla Ice Story in His Own Word was released. The book chronicled a false background story in an attempt to give Van Winkle street credibility. The biography claimed that he was a gang member who had been raised in the ghetto of Miami Lakes, Florida, and had attended the same predominantly black high school as 2 Live Crew's Luther Campbell. The biography also erroneously claimed that Van Winkle, an actual Motocross enthusiast, had been a national champion. Although attributed to Van Winkle, he later stated that it had actually been written by ex-manager Tommy Quon and that he had no part in the book's authorship. [9] “Cred” redirects here. ...

The same year, he starred in the 1991 motion picture Cool as Ice, which was a very loose update of Rebel Without a Cause, starring Van Winkle as Johnny, a biker gang member modeled on the Vanilla Ice character. Johnny falls in love with a preppy girl he meets while riding through a small town. The soundtrack album featured several new tracks, including a duet with Naomi Campbell.[10] The film was both a commercial and critical flop, and Van Winkle won the "Worst New Star" award at the 1991 Golden Raspberry Awards. Cool as Ice lasted less than a month in U.S. theaters and slipped into obscurity with only a limited VHS release. The film was also the centerpiece of his eponymous second studio album. Van Winkle also made a cameo appearance in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, where he performed a self-penned song named "Ninja Rap" during one of the film's climatic battle scenes.

Revisiting his songs for a third time, Van Winkle's next album was a live version of To The Extreme titled Extremely Live. Though he received a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist and Extremely Live was certified gold, his fame had faded significantly by the time the record was released in 1991. Van Winkle had now become a regular subject of parody and was regularly mocked by his peers, most notably in 3rd Bass' 1991 hit single "Pop Goes the Weasel".[11] The music video featured Henry Rollins dressed like Vanilla Ice and being assaulted by the members of the group. Van Winkle later stated "I loved what they did. It showed how I was having an impact. I sold 17 million albums. Let them do whatever they want to me."[12] Van Winkle also appeared in Madonna's book Sex, which was released in 1992. This page is a candidate for speedy deletion. ...

Rebranded image (1994-2001)

Van Winkle returned to music in 1994 with a new album titled Mind Blowin. His image had been changed to a dreadlocked, marijuana-obsessed, tattooed hardcore rapper with a G-funk style similar to that of Dr. Dre. Mind Blowin failed to crack the Billboard Top 200 and led to SBK dropping Van Winkle from the label. On July 4, 1994, Van Winkle attempted to commit suicide, and made another attempt later that same year, citing drug abuse and depression surrounding his flagging career.

It was widely reported that Van Winkle had been threatened and assaulted by Death Row Records CEO Marion "Suge" Knight, who had demanded that royalties for "Ice Ice Baby" be paid to Mario "Chocolate" Johnson, a Dallas rapper and former associate of Knight who claimed that he had co-written the single. Van Winkle later stated that Knight "took me to the balcony and talked to me... but it's funny how the story gets turned around...

In 1996, he appeared on the Bloodhound Gang track "Boom" under his real name, which led to a moderate revival in popularity and thus the first new Vanilla Ice album in four years. Hard to Swallow, released in 1998 and produced by Ross Robinson, known for his work with bands such as The Deftones, Korn and Limp Bizkit. The album was radically different from Van Winkle's previous works as it featured nu metal rather than hip hop. The album also included a new version of "Ice Ice Baby," renamed "Too Cold," and reinterpreted as a stomping nu metal anthem. Guest artists on the album included Doug Ardito of Puddle of Mudd and Scott Borland, brother of guitarist Wes Borland.

A Day in the Life of Thomas Jefferson: At-home Activity - Ice Cream (572 words)
Jefferson was able to enjoy ice cream throughout the year because ice was "harvested" from the Rivanna River in winter and taken to the Monticello ice house, which held sixty-two wagon-loads.
The ice house located in Monticello's north dependency wing was used throughout the year primarily to preserve meat and butter, but also to chill wine and to make ice cream.
There was no crank to turn it; when Jefferson wrote "turn the Sabottiere in the ice 10 minutes," he meant for someone to grab the handle and turn the cannister clockwise and then counterclockwise.
