Cultural Theft Or Appreciation? 10 White Celebrities Who Embrace Black Culture

Vanilla Ice

A run-in with Suge Knight would make anyone reconsider their profession. Putting his break-dancing moves to the test, he experienced mainstream success with the record-breaking album, To the Extreme. Ice made major waves in the early 1990s with songs like “Ice Ice Baby” and “Play That Funky Music,” but later shifted to dreadlocks and the Rastafarian movement. While Robert Van Winkle enjoys more of the rock life these days, he still capitalizes on his time as Vanilla Ice. After a pretty steady life of construction and real estate, Van Winkle returned to his Vanilla Ice persona touring with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men in 2013.
