Vanilla Ice Involved With New Ninja Turtles Movie?

by Justin Bozung

When Michael Bay tells you to chill, it’s kind of insulting. However, when Vanilla Ice tells you to chill, you’ve got to at least hear him out. After all, the guy is a self professed shell head who is totally down with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In an impromptu interview with MTV, Ice was caught discussing the new TMNT film being produced by Michael Bay. When asked if he would have any involvement musically or otherwise, he pointed to the interviewer and declared that he couldn’t say anything about that. Okay, so this could mean nothing, but it could also mean a lot.

Vanilla Ice TMNT, Ninja Turtles

For turtles fans, Vanilla Ice will always be somewhat fondly remembered for the iconic ‘Ninja Rap’ that he contributed to the second feature film, Secret of the Ooze. During the interview, he was asked if he would ever do a remix or reprise his role again for the next generation of Ninja Turtles; his answer was an emphatic yes, as he stated the following:

“Absolutely. I’d get a tattoo of it. I’d be all over that. Aliens, sewers, whatever: They’re still Ninja Turtles, and I’m a ninja, so I get in where I fit in.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I think it would be pretty interesting to find out that Vanilla Ice was at long last involved with another TMNT project. When pressed on the subject, Ice pulled up his pant leg to reveal that he has a tattoo of the ninja turtles on his leg. When an actual fan comes out and says he’s excited about the new Ninja Turtles movie, it’s a little easier to handle the changes, particularly when that fan is the author of the Ninja Rap and hints at further involvement with the turtles universe.

It never ceases to amaze me how out of touch Hollywood Exectutive are. Everyone one and their mother makes fun of Vanilla Ice for being one of the worst rappers of all time. Out of all the complaints people make about the second turtles movie Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja rap” is always the biggest.

The “Ninja Rap” song was amazing in its time. Vanilla Ice is a character and he deserves to be in the next movie. If he gets along with the Turtles then he gets along with me. Cowabunga!

Vanilla Ice is amazing and I would already buy my tickets if he would be involved in the next project. Him or Feldman are those who I’m dying the most to see back in a Turtle movie. But anyone reprising would be wonderful.

And to Jimmy Hughes, Ice has a huge fanbase and people who usually give him a hard time are people who don’t know anything about his long history with hip hop and the pop culture medium. The guy is a legend and deserves respect. Check out the new documentary on YouTube, Vanilla Ice Archive. They go over everything and really showcase how great he is.

And they talk about Ninja Rap as well as his remix in the movie. Both verisons are great.
