The rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, struggled to find another hit and began using ecstasy, cocaine and heroin in the mid-1990s. After a suicide attempt, he took a break from music, focusing on motocross and jet skiing and then started working on the side renovating and selling houses. When he returned to music in 1998, he came with a new sound that combined heavy metal, punk rock and hip hop. In 2009, he began hosting "The Vanilla Ice Project" on DIY Network. His latest album, "W.T.F. (Wisdom, Tenacity And Focus)," was released in August 2011. In mid 2013, Vanilla Ice joined the New Kids on the Block tour alongside Boyz II Men, playing to sold out crowds. He also performed at the halftime show of a Houston Texans game in September 2013.
