Let's just be honest for a second. If this were released today, it'd be better than most the singles on the radio. It's also better lyrically than most singles being played on the radio. Plus, this video alone promotes the four main bases of hip hop culture. Can you really say that about hip hop on the radio these days?
Back when originality and authenticity was the norm, this song was ridiculed, but in today's climate of frauds and chumps running around claiming G status, this song would fit right in.
I'm not a Vanilla Ice fan by any means, but the ridicule and lambasting of this song was a product of the time it was released.
