Florida Town Names Vanilla Ice 'Outstanding Citizen of the Year! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"It`s official: rapper-turned-reality-TV-star Vanilla Ice (real name: Rob Van Winkle) will be named Outstanding Citizen of the Year.


Not by the entire universe or anything, just by the Florida town where he lives, but still. The Wellington Chamber of Commerce will present Mr. Ice with the honor at an even later this month, the Palm Beach Post reports. Officials selected him for his for his spirit of giving and dedication to the town."

All right haters: Stop, Collaborate and listen, Ice is back with a brand new award, not a Grammy, but an "Outstanding Citizen of the Year"  award.

Vanilla Ice has lived in Wellington for ten years and films his DIY Network realty show, The Vanilla Ice Project, there as well.

Ice couldn`t make it as a rapper in Hollywood but now he`s living large flipping houses and making millions in the small Florida town of Wellington.

I make fun of Vanilla Ice the rapper whenever his name comes up in a conversation, but in my shower I`m rapping at the top of my lungs:

Yo, VIP, Let`s kick it!

Ice Ice Baby, Ice Ice Baby
All right stop, Collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop? Yo " I don`t know
Turn off the lights and I`ll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle.

Word to your Mother: Vanilla Ice is Hype!
