Hellooooo… Everybully! And WELCOME! to Songs on Saturday!

This week Umma actually attempt to regale you with a song. My song!

Bet you didn’t know I, too, am a talented songwriter and performer? BOL!

Vanilla Ice

This is a little ditty I call “Ice Cream Baby”inspired by my love of vanilla ice cream and specifically Trader Joe’s French Vanilla Ice Cream (shameless product plug endorsed with the #bullDogENdorphiNATION four ‘s seal of approval)!

The tune is inspired by Grammy Award nominated one hit wonder and used to wannabee bad boy Robert Matthew Van Winkle (born October 31, 1967), more popularly known by his stage name Vanilla Ice.

I am not ashamed to admit She lubbed the tune back in the day, and we still lub it now! It’s still pullin’ us up on the dance floor after all these years! So go ahead and laugh. Got that outta’ya system? Let’s continue…

Vanilla Ice, a rapper from middle class suburbs in Texas and South Florida, released his debut album, “To the Extreme” featuring the smash hit single “Ice Ice Baby.” The tune was the first hip hop single to top the Billboard charts catapulting Mr. Van Winkle into instant stardom and hip hop history in 1990.

But there was a pricetag. Van Winkle had manufactured a hard knock  life bio designed to give him “street cred” with hip hop audiences. Both his credibility and reputation were irrevocably destroyed, however, when, like Milli Vanilli, the truth, specifically about Van Winkle’s middle class background and upbringing surfaced.

Mr. Van Winkle suffered other assaults to his credibility as well, including the appearance of plagiarizing intellectual property without assigning the requisite credit(s).

On the liner notes of the album “To The Extreme,” composer credit is given to Vanilla Ice, Earthquake, and Mr. Smooth. The record producers also thanked MC Hammer, Ice T, Public Enemy, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Cash Money, EPMD, and 2 Live Crew.

However no mention at all is given Queen or David Bowie whose 1980 hit “Under Pressure” were taken. Vanilla Ice never sought permission to use it.

According to industry insider Hans Ebert, Brian May of Queen heard the tune at a disco in Germany. He asked the DJ what it was subsequently discovering it was #1 in the US.

Although no lawsuit was ever filed, rumor has it Vanilla Ice agreed to pay Queen and Bowie a settlement.

So much fur the abbreviated version of the Vanilla Ice story.

And so now, without further ado, Songs On Saturday proudly presents ThatOne’s ode to Trader Joe’s. Anipals and furriends– Give it up fur Ice Cream Baby!
