Stop. Collaborate and listen: Ice is back with a brand-new, um, nothing. Except, well, he's bringing his old Caucasian rap shtick to the Seminole Casino Hollywood for a free Labor Day weekend show. I mean, obviously it's free. I wouldn't pay to see this 41-year-old white boy sing-talk his way through the hit-laden tracklist of 1991's To The Extreme, would you? 

OK, yes, we would pay. But only if Mr. Robert Matthew Van Winkle stopped dressing like an over-the-hill motocross rider and immediately resurrected his classic early '90s look. That means flashes of yellow gold bling and an infinite collection of American flag bomber jackets and windbreakers, and four vertical stripes shaved into the left eyebrow. And YES ... Oh yes, the hair, so perfectly molded into a cresting dirty blonde flattop wave with that little taste of vanilla at the front. 

But barring that miracle, we wouldn't pay. So yeah, just go get your nostalgia kicks for free this weekend. Or check out the jump for a video of the Iceman's "Ninja Rap" from the immortal Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
