Silly question, but would anybody be willing to help me find his first album, "Hooked"? It came out on an independent label BEFORE "To the Extreme" and only sold like 48,000 copies. I haven't been able to find a torrent or anyone on Soulseek with it. I've managed to get all his other albums (including the almost equally rare "Mind Blowin'" which was released shortly before the record label went bankrupt). I need it for research purposes...and because Vanilla Ice = love.

I'm also having trouble getting my hands on all of MC Hammer's stuff simply because every time I find anything by him the person either logs off or bans me.

I've managed to download all his other albums so far. This is the last one I need and it's sadly the most important one.

i'm with you, josh.
Awesome!

amazon and allmusic both claim that he does not have an album called "hooked". If those sites don't have it, you're either falsely informed, or there's no way you're ever going to find it.

I just checked his site, and it does exist, but EVERY SINGLE SONG on hooked is also on "to the extreme".

False. It is on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/HOOKED-VANILLA-ICE/dp/B0001L0COC/sr=1-13/qid=1166424427/ref=sr_1_13/102-9920667-7584120?ie=UTF8&s=music).

However, it is $41.95.

No, it also has Satisfaction on it. And I'm not sure if To the Extreme was re-recordings or not. There's 30 second clips on there but that doesn't help me.

It appears that "Hooked" was an EP that was later turned into "To the Extreme", with one new song added. Doesn't sound like anything was re-recorded.

Directly from his website..

"Hooked is Ice's first ever recorded record. Hooked remains the rarest of all of Ice's albums, and is essentially an early copy of To The Extreme. However, the album does contain unique versions of songs including "Satisfaction". Approximately 48,000 copies were sold, so this album is virtually impossible to get. If you don't have a copy now you probably won't ever have one."

I don't have 41.95 to spend on a cd even if it is quite possibly the most awesome and important cd ever.

you heard Sam; it's incredibly rare. it's a collector's item. you could've known it wasn't gonna be cheap, if you'd ever find it & now you found it, you need it, you want it, but you're not going to buy it, because it's too expensive? Josh, that's so sad, I'd almost offer to sponsor you, if it weren't so that I have minus a LOT on my bankaccount.

edit: I just looked for Hooked on the internets & personally I can't find it anywhere, except what Sam already found. so, if it were something I desperately wanted & needed, I'd get it, even if I had to borrow from a friend/parents. it may very well be your only chance to ever get it.

I'm just surprised nobody has it on soulseek or on a torrent or anything. I was never planning on actually buying a copy of it. I actually found Satisfaction this morning and though I had found someone with the whole album but it was apparently just a mix cd of Vanilla Ice songs the person had put together. I need the other songs still! *sob*.

google "hooked vanilla ice". it's literally no where in the search results. obviously it's rare to the max. I doubt any music site will have any songs that were on Hooked, because I doubt the songs were even ever put online. I think the best you can do/get is buy the cd once you have the chance. SPONSOR JOSH!

Awesome! I'll have to set up a paypal account or something. I'd feel bad if anyone actually gave me anything for that though.

There's a song called Hooked that was on both that album and To the Extreme, so that's actually what's showing on the site. Thanks though.

The only song I've ever heard of Vanilla Ice's was the song "Ninja Rap." it appeared on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II movie.

I find it very hard to believe that you've never heard 'Ice Ice Baby'.

I was under the impression that every person alive has heard that song, or at least the plagaraized little riff in it.

Can you believe Vanilla Ice was once rejected by some girl (http://www.yousendit.com/download/25knTt4HbWx5TA%253D%253D)? She must have been insane! He's got a number one record!

The sheer implausibility of Vanilla Ice being rejected is making the link not work.

The implausibility was so powerful that it must've warped reality to its very core.

Does anyone know any non-Vanilla Ice songs where Vanilla Ice does a cameo? I've already stumbled onto the following:

Offspring - Pretty Fly live (Vanilla Ice comes out and sings Ice Ice Baby in the middle)
Bloodhound Gang - Boom
Insane Clown Posse - Insane Killers
Insane Clown Posse - Swallow This Nut
Betty Blowtorch - Size Queen
Reanimator - Ice Ice Baby 2001

Bump because I'm not the only insane person still trying to get my hands on Hooked. I just came back from work and apparently got the below IM during the day.

[13:57] casey_barlow2006: hey i was doing a search for Hooked by Vanilla Ice and found your post on Offspring board. I too have been looking for this a long time now. Had any luck?
[13:58] casey_barlow2006: I have the old Hammer albums up til Hammer Dont Hurt Em.

Someday the rest of the world will realize Vanilla Ice's genius like Casey Barlow and I do.

Ice is back...in jail!

Vanilla Ice arrested in Florida on simple battery charge after incident at home

WELLINGTON, Fla. - Vanilla Ice has been arrested in South Florida on a simple battery charge.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says the 39-year-old rapper was arrested late Thursday night following an incident at his home in Wellington.

He was being held without bond.

It wasn't known if he had an attorney. A message left with his agent wasn't immediately returned early Friday morning.

The rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, spent a night in jail in 2001 after being arrested following a domestic dispute.

He sold 15 million copies of the single Ice Ice Baby in 1990.

Rapper Vanilla Ice, real name Robert Van Winkle, has been released from jail after being arrested over a dispute with his wife at his home in Florida.

The singer, who shot to fame in the 80s, was taken into police custody on Thursday after his wife claimed that he had beaten her.

Laura Van Winkle told a police official at the time that she had been kicked and beaten but now maintains that her husband had pushed her and not been more violent towards her.

The 40-year-old Ice Ice Baby star was then taken to the Palm Beach County jail where he was booked. He faces a charge of simple battery and is now out on supervised release.

E! News reports that Van Winkle will now enter the Palm Beach County Supervised Own Recognisance programme during which he will not be in physical contact with his spouse. The rapper has previously been in trouble with the police in 2001 over an argument with his wife.

Vanilla Ice would have trouble rhyming Mercedes with ladies, even if he was run down by a Mercedes full of ladies, all of whom were waving rhyming dictionaries only containing the words Mercedes and ladies.

A news channel I was watching had this story on with the VERY catchy title of "Ice, Ice, Arrest".

... epic failz :(
