Vanilla Ice and Ninja Turtle

Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Vanilla Ice Returning To “The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Reboot?

I thought you may get a quick little chuckle out of this rumor. Twenty years ago, Vanilla Ice was the original “white rapper” and made an unforgetable cameo in The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Part 2 in a scene that has become part of movie trivia history. Well, Vanilla or Ice or Rob Van Winkle, or whatever you want to call him, hinted during a recent interview with MTV, that he may be participating in the reboot for the movie.

If you were too young to remember the Ninja Turtles movie, the scene that includes Vanilla Ice birthed one of the chessiest fight anthems ever, but kids everywhere, including myself ate it up! In the scene, the turtles are battling the bad guys when their fight spills into a nightclub, where Vanilla Ice just happens to be performing. The Ice man improvises a rap song to prevent a panic by creating the impression that the fight is part of his act. And the Ninja Turtle anthem, “Go Ninja, Go Ninja Go” was created! Check out the scene with Vanilla Ice below:

The revamped Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will reportedly start shooting in Vancouver later this year. Watch the clip of Vanilla Ice’ interview below:
