(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.
