About the Artists
The iconic Robert Van Winkle, aka Vanilla Ice, exploded on the Rap/Pop music scene in 1990/91, selling 10 million albums in four months and hitting No. 1 on the Billboard charts with the single “Ice Ice Baby” and number one album positions. His worldwide album sales are over 25 million, and individual songs total over 160 million and are still selling.
TONE LOC soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song “Wild Thing” (using a sample from Van Halen’s “Jamie’s Cryin'”) a massive hit winning Grammy’s and countless other awards.
Harlem, New York’s Rob Base began performing with various groups; Sure Shot Seven, Cosmic 3 MCs, Freedom Force, and Disco Enforcers. He and partner DJ EZ Rock (whom he has known since the 4th grade) would eventually separate from the groups to form Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock.
Oklahoma City, Okla.’s Color Me Badd is best known for the hit singles “I Wanna Sex You Up,” “I Adore Mi Amor,” and “All 4 Love”. They have sold over 12 million records, nine Top 40 hits, received two Grammy nominations, and won two Soul Train Awards.
Rapper Marvin Young made his debut as Young MC on the single “I Let ‘Em Know.” In 1989, Young collaborated with Tone-Loc on “Wild Thing,” the first Top 10 pop hit for a black rapper, and the follow-up smash “Funky Cold Medina.” Young stepped out on his own later in the year with the Top Ten smash “Bust a Move,”
