Platinum Underground is the fifth studio album by American rapper Vanilla Ice. Released on August 16,it is the rapper's third independent release, after Hooked and Bi-Polar. Allmusic reviewer Rob Theakston panned the album, writing that it "has more bad spots in it than most". The title alludes to Ice's current tours playing to fans of underground musicin contrast to his history as an RIAA certified platinum artist.
The followed up the album with 's W. Platinum Underground was the first Vanilla Ice album with original content released by Ultrax since Van Vinkle was interested in using all the different genres he had experiences with in earlier albums, not focusing on marketing or trying to attract a certain audience.
The rest of the album featured mixes of horrorcorereggae and hardcore hip hop. The name of the album Wonderfully Stupid - Fountainheads - Album Of The Day a reference to Van Winkel's underground hip hop status while still having a loyal fanbase and having gone Platinum in the past. Ultrax, with hopes of being able to sell the album to a mass audience released two versions of the album, one censored.
After appearing on the second season of The Surreal LifeIce was more willing to accept his past after conversations with Tammy Faye Messnerwho also appears on Who Am I - Kage - Platinum Underground album. With interest to re-visit the past, Ice re-recorded Ice Ice Baby as he performs it currently during his tours. After getting requests to do Ninja Rap live, Ice decided to make a song entitled "Ninja Rap 2" also known as "Go Ninja Go" Who Am I - Kage - Platinum Underground was set to be a hardcore remix.
Despite the name, the song has very little connections to Van Vinkle's original single, but rather stays true to Ice's current lyricism, where Ice talks about his appreciation to his fans, his love to perform at clubs and playing at the Gathering of the Juggalos with Insane Clown Posse.
The chorus and hook was based on " Survivor " by Destiny's Child. Most of the songs were produced by Ice himself with additional production by whatever disc jockey Ice was using during that particular session. Ice goes on that there are somethings he regrets, other things that he won't take back, having no interest in pity and that he hopes the songs will live on when he dies.
Ice raps about talking to a judge as he's explaining why he murdered him by shooting him in the eye. The song could be referring to Chocolate, a rapper that collaborated with Vanilla Ice before he became famous and later claimed to have written "Ice Ice Baby". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
