Vanilla Ice – The Artist
Robert Matthew Van Winkle (born 1967), known professionally as Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper, actor, and television host. Born in South Dallas, and raised in Texas and South Florida, Ice released his debut album, Hooked, in 1989 on Ichiban Records, before signing a contract with SBK Records, a record label of the EMI Group, which released a reformatted version of the album in 1990 under the title To the Extreme which became the fastest-selling hip hop album of all time and contained Ice’s best-known hits: “Ice Ice Baby” and a cover of “Play That Funky Music”. “Ice Ice Baby” was the first hip hop single to top the charts and has been credited with helping to diversify hip hop by introducing it to a mainstream audience.
Play That Funky Music- The Song
‘Play that Funky Music‘ is a hip hop song by American rapper Vanilla Ice. It is his interpretation of the original “Play That Funky Music” written by Rob Parissi and recorded by the band Wild Cherry. The original single was the first released by the Cleveland-based Sweet City record label in April 1976 and distributed by Epic Records. It was popular in both the US and the UK selling over 2.5 million copies. Songwriter Robert Parissi was not credited on the Vanilla Ice version but was later awarded a considerable sum in a copyright infringement lawsuit.
The Cherub Logo – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of the Vanilla Ice logo which consists of a angelic cherub holding an automatic firearm. A cherub is one of the unearthly beings who directly attend to God, according to Abrahamic religions. The numerous depictions of cherubim assign to them many different roles, such as protecting the entrance of the Garden of Eden.
