* HighAltitudeInterrogation: Suge Knight of Death Row Records implied to Van Winkle that Knight would have his thugs throw him over a balcony unless Van Winkle signed over the rights to "Ice, Ice Baby." Tabloid rumors suggested that Knight actually held Ice over the balcony and threatened to drop him.

However, Van Winkle's success did not go without drama. After signing with a larger label, SBK, they paid him to adopt a more commercial appearance, which was the subject of [[OldShame frequent mockery among his peers]]. Quon attempted to expand Van Winkle's success into film, with mixed results. He had a cameo in ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIITheSecretOfTheOoze'', which was a success (but not really because of Ice). Ice also starred in the vehicle ''Film/CoolAsIce'', which bombed at the box office, earned him a [[MedalOfDishonor Golden Raspberry Award]] for Worst Actor, and today isn't even watchable as an early '90s artifact (at least not without the help of the people at Podcast/RiffTrax). SBK and Quon also pretty much ruined his reputation by publishing a fake autobiography without his knowledge which claimed a violent gang life that he didn't participate in. Van Winkle soon found himself having to answer questions about claims he never made, and the inconsistency between the label's biography and Van Winkle's actual statements led to further criticism.

* CreatorBacklash: For a while, any material from ''To the Extreme'' was off-limits, but he still performs "Ice Ice Baby", and even recorded a NuMetal version, "Too Cold", in 1998.



* OldShame: He strongly regrets the clothing his label forced him to wear in the early '90s. It probably doesn't help that most people still assume he dressed that way by choice.



* [[strike:RapRock]] [[strike:RapMetal]] [[strike:PunkRap]] [[strike:NuMetal]] [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly Metal Molten Hip Hop]].
* TheRival: There was some mild friction with {{Eminem}} in the mid-2000's, but neither Vanilla Ice nor Enimem were offended by the barbs they threw each other. By 2009, the duo were friendly, with Ice appearing in Eninem's video "We Made You".

* HypocriticalHumor: An unintentional example happened on the RealityTV show ''The Surreal Life'', which featured several former stars living together, including Vanilla Ice. Rob would often get very upset if anyone brought up ''Ice Ice Baby'' or simply talked about his [[OldShame former celebrity status]], [[IAmNotShazam even going so far as to refuse to be called Vanilla Ice.]] Gary Coleman appeared on one episode for a charity event (he was running for the governor of California at the time). Vanilla Ice demanded that Coleman say his old CatchPhrase from DifferentStrokes, "Whatchoo talkn' `bout Willis?". Coleman refused and Vanilla Ice went so far as to pick him up and carry him around in order to force Coleman to say something that he hadn't said since he was twelve. Vanilla Ice eventually claimed Coleman was being too serious about his former celebrity status [[CaptainOblivious and did not see the hypocrisy of the situation]]. The audience did, however.
