Vanilla Ice: I Don't Like Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and Juicy J Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Song

(AllHipHop News) In the really early 1990s, few rappers had a better understanding of fake ninjas than Vanilla Ice. In a recent interview with GQ, the “Ice Ice Baby” rapper explains his distaste for Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J and Ty Dolla $ign’s song for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie.

The collaborative song between the three artists, entitled “Shellshocked” was released back in late July. Vanilla Ice contributed “Go Ninja Go (Ninja Rap)” for the 1991 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II film. During the interview, Ice believes the problem with “Shellshocked” is the artists’ lack of authentic connection to the series and corporate influence:

It feels a little artificial — what I mean by that is that it sounds like a bunch of executives in the corporate world put it together. It really does not fit the theme of the Ninja Turtles legend. I think you have to understand, and be a true ninja, to possess the magic to really pull off the secret sound.

Check out Vanilla Ice’s music video for 1991’s “Go Ninja Go” below:

    go ninja go is the secret sound ? nah , the executives did the same as they did with you in 91 . only difference is they didn’t go with the ” new white rapper ” thing . you know , ” the secret sound ” . don’t get me wrong , they did get some trash to do it .

      “The wackest rapper ever. There are no rappers ever gonna top Vanilla Ice on this.”

        Wat about riff raff

    • meanygreene

      have you heard any rap songs post 2000?

  • jd

    Ever wanted to know what the saying “The pot calling the kettle Black” means? Yeah. This.

  • Jeff Active Reynolds

    I have no interest in listening to this song but I do know one thing. Every single time Vanilla Ice opens his mouth he spews out bullsh*t. Dude has not made even close enough of an impact in the game to even speak on hip hop like he does.

  • Papi Peligro

    I’m sorry but Vanilla Ice at the time was a little more child palatable than Juicy J and Whiz Kalifa. You should have just brought Vanilla Ice Back. I ain’t heard the song and been a Juicy J fan since 91. LOL.

  • justus182

    You can’t even really hate on Vanilla Ice, this dude is almost 50, still looks damn near the same as he did 20yrs ago and has more money still than your favorite rapper.

    • Immortal

      He did have his hey day in music, but his money trail is in real estate. Not a bad move in todays society when you’re flippin million dollar homes and have your own show to prove it. He’s doing a lot better than most rappers of that era and todays without all the ignorant beef that goes with it

  • Brindle

    I didn’t know Iggy was a man

  • ZUBU

    He had his moment in the sun and, because he was a white guy (not being racist, just being honest) he really, really capitalized on it money-wise. Now true talent wise GTFOH…. Who is he to be critical of anyone… ok he can be critical of Milli Vanilli…

    Em, sold a lot as well because of the white market, but Em really got mad skills so I got respect for Em as a true artist, but this clown lol… He (Vanilla Ice) better shut up lay low before someone tells Suge and Suge dangle his ass off a balcony again……..

    • hoeyuno

      Vanilla ice was a complete scheme put together by a record company..he was into hip hop and rapped but they signed him and created this fake image to sell him..the story was he was a gang banger(only white kid In a black neighborhood of course)who lost half his blood from being stabbed in a gang fight. ..when that and other ish was proven false by some magazine who went to his moms for the truth vanilla ice fell off like a muddachukka…dude was a pro motocross racer before that ish though. .

      • ZUBU

        True indeed, I forgot he was marketed in that manner some of it I heard before, and other info I didn’t know…….. They had a nice plan to make money without a ton of talent…. Here Come Suge….Round 2 lol

      • hoeyuno

        I wont front I had the album and bumped it before literally dubbing over it with cypress hill…suge know how to get business done quick though haha

  • Markus

    Got to agree with the Vanilla one. The best Turtles song is Turtle Power by that great artist Snap. Straight from the original movie. Lol.

  • stackzscrilla

    Rollin’ in my 5.0 put my rag top down so my hair can blow…. #BARZ!!! LOL!!!

  • Poseidon

    Lol, I hate to say it, but I can only agree with him here. These artists ain’t right for making theme music for a kid’s movie. Definitely an in-house corporate move. Hell, Universal, Warner, Dreamworks, and Sony now own all the music of the world too. Consolidated media…. The new era.

  • Sean Power

    ice is right on this one…….. go ninja go ninja go

  • Mark Lamount Burns

    I have to agree with Vanilla Ice on this one. Back then the “Ninja Rap” song was right for it’s time. It was the early 90’s, hip-hop was in a very innovative period, so this song fit right in (to me anyway). “Shellshocked” just sounds boring and saturated by the corporate nonsense that’s already out on the radio. There was nothing unique about it at all. When you’re spewing out garbage about “gettin’ paper” or “green in my pocket” or even about rocking rollies to go on a soundtrack for a movie about four mutant turtles and their sensei who’s a rat that lives in a sewer, I just can’t help but to throw up my hands in the air, switch to screwface mode and ask “Why…just why?” (Sorry for going to deep on this. TMNT was a huge part of my childhood, so I got a little sensitive. HAHA!)

    • Papi Peligro

      Exactly Vanilla Ice song was relative to what was going on. It was commercial I get it but it was children commercial like all them kids dancing on a Disney show. It would have been like bringing NWA to Sesame street. Like it just don’t mesh.

  • Boss

    Who’s better vanilla ice or riff raff lol I think ice can’t out rap riff raff

    Vanillas song was good for a kids movie rap..he was in the movie performing the song in a club and the turtles and foot clan end up scrapping and pushing vanilla and crew off stage…

    And then there’s the das efx/ninja turtles connect….straight up sewaside!!!

  • how does go ninja go connect more tho? lmfao

    V ice was a fake and a fraud and now that his time has pass he passing judgment

    • FRUKOH

      If so he must feel at home with all the fakes and frauds in todays industry

  • Killuminati

    I think the real answer to vanillas trash song for tmnt and wiz and juicy j’s is not to have a hip hop group do the track….a rock or techno type would have been much more fitting
