If you remember the 90s you probably weren’t there. That might be said about Friday’s opening UK date for the ‘I Love The 90s’ Tour, at the SSE Arena, Wembley. The thousands-strong audience ranged in ages from those who *were* there – those of a similar age to or older than the performers – down to the ones whose knowledge of Vanilla Ice’s hit, ‘Ice Ice Baby’ might be from when he stopped, collaborated and listened with Jedward, on their mashup of ‘Under Pressure/Ice Ice Baby’, back in 2010.
The first hip hop artist to top the Billboard charts, with his 1990 single, ‘Ice Ice Baby’, Vanilla Ice, real name Robert Van Winkle, is credited with helping to diversify hip hop, and introduce it to a more mainstream audience. Lisa had the chance to speak to Vanilla Ice ahead of the first date of the I Love The 90s Tour in the UK, at SSE Arena Wembley.
