Rapper Vanilla Ice was born Robert van Winkle and has a net worth estimated at $18 million. Growing up between Dallas and Miami, Vanilla Ice began writing and performing songs and breakdancing in his mid-teens. After performing at various Dallas nightclubs with DJ Earthquake, Vanilla Ice earned enough attention to achieve his first record contract with Ichiban Records. Vanilla Ice's debut album, Hooked, garnered substantial club play, and went on to be rereleased only a year later with SBK Records under the name To the Extreme, which has gone down in history as being the fastest selling hip-hop album of all time. To the Extreme has sold over eleven million copies worldwide, and topped the Billboard 200 in its sixteen week stint on the charts. Vanilla Ice's single off the album, Ice Ice Baby, is still his most successful song to date, peaking at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, certified platinum by the RIAA and selling over 1,000,000 copies in the US alone. During the Stop the Violence tour, Vanilla Ice opened for other hip-hop artists such as Sir Mix-A-Lot and Ice-T. Vanilla Ice contributed to the soundtrack of the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze with the song Ninja Rap, which Vanilla Ice performed in the film. He appeared on season two of the reality television show The Surreal Life. He has four more studio albums, Mind Blowin, Hard to Swallow, Bi-Polar, Platinum Underground, and a cover album Vanilla Ice is Back!
