Sirius XM Presents I Love the 90's, featuring Vanilla Ice, Rob Base, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, and Young MC!
The iconic Robert Van Winkle aka Vanilla Ice exploded on the Rap/Pop music scene in 1990 and 1991, selling 10 million albums in 4 months and hitting #1 on the Billboard charts with the number one single Ice Ice Baby and #1 album positions. His worldwide album sales are over 25 million and individual songs total over 160 million and are still selling. Vanilla Ice has won 2 MTV Awards, a People’s Choice Award, and was nominated for a Grammy.
Rob Base first began performing with various groups such as Sure Shot Seven, Cosmic 3 MC’s, and Freedom Force. His first single with partner DJ EZ Rock, DJ Interview came out in 1986, followed by Make It Hot in 1987. Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s music began to gain momentum in 1988 when Profile Records released Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock’s debut album It Takes Two. The title track became a massive single. The single and the album were certified platinum by the RIAA and produced 3 top ten hits. The single gained Single of the Year honors from both Spin Magazine and The Village Voice. Additional singles such as Get on the Dance Floor (Which reached #1 on the Dance Club charts) and Joy and Pain continued to help push the album to multi-platinum status. In 1989, Rob Base dropped a solo release album The Incredible Base, which went Gold and included a number of hits such as Turn It Out (Go Base), which reached #4 and Get Up and Have A Good Time. In the last 30 years, Rob Base has continued to make his mark in the Hip Hop and Freestyle worlds.
Color Me Badd is one of the top R&B vocal groups of all time. The group has sold 12 million records in the United States, and their debut album, C.M.B sold over 6 million copies worldwide and became certified Triple platinum in the United States. They have 3 number 1 singles and 17 top 20 singles, like I Wanna Sex You Up (U.S. #2), I Adore Mi Amor (U.S. #1), All 4 Love (U.S. #1), Thinkin' Back (U.S. #16) and Slow Motion (U.S. #18).
TONE LOC soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song Wild Thing (using a sample from Van Halen's "Jamie's Cryin'") a massive hit winnning Grammy’s and countless other awards. The song Wild Thing was co-written by Marvin Young, better known as Young MC, as was the second single smash, Funky Cold Medina. The album Loc-ed After Dark became the second rap release ever to top the pop charts and one of the most popular of all time.
Young MC grew up middle-class and earned a degree in economics from USC, where he met Michael Ross and Matt Dike, co-founders of the fledgling Delicious Vinyl rap label. He made his debut as Young MC on the single I Let 'Em Know. In 1989, Young collaborated with Tone-Loc on Wild Thing, the first Top Ten pop hit for a black rapper, and the follow-up smash Funky Cold Medina. Young stepped out on his own later in the year with the Top Ten smash Bust a Move, a good-natured examination of romantic successes and failures spiced by his sense of humor and quick-tongued rapping. The song won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance, and its strong pop appeal helped the attendant album, Stone Cold Rhymin', go platinum. The follow-up, Principal's Office, was a humorous, everyday high-school tale resembling a Chuck Berry plot, and also climbed into the Top 40.
See them all when Sirius XM Presents I Love the 90's hits the Umpqua Bank Concert Series at the Oregon State Fair on Thursday, August 31!
