Vanilla Ice Net Worth $18 Million

Today, Vanilla Ice, thanks to his great talent while being a musician and actor who has played many different roles, is considered to be one of the richest personalities in the United States.

Robert Matthew Van Winkle was born on October 31. 1967, in Dallas, Texas, United States. He was raised by his mother and stepfather until 4 years old, and later his mother divorced and married a new man. However, Robert did not have an opportunity to meet his real biological father, and furthermore, he does not even know who he is. During his teenage years Vanilla was not interested in music very much, but he practiced the break dance and then received a nickname which he later used as a stage name – Vanilla. He was so named because in the group of teenagers who were spending time together Matthew was the only white boy, and even if he disliked his new nickname, he took to it later.

The first time Vanilla’s net worth increased seriously was in 1990, when he released his debut album entitled “To the Extreme”. It was a really great success for a young artist, as he was able to hit umber 1 on US Billboard 200 chart, and this is one of the main reasons why nowadays the estimated net worth of MC Vanilla is so amazingly huge that he is considered to be one of the richest rappers in the world.

The next more notable of Vanilla’s albums was released in 1994 – he worked on it for more than two years together with many other famous musicians, such as Jay-Z and Run-DMC. The album was entitled “Mind Blowin'” and actually did it – it became popular in the United States and Ice’s net worth increased even more.

The following album increased Ice’s net worth again, and was entitled “W. T. F. (Wisdom, Tenacity and Focus”. Thanks to the original title, great songs and the creativity of a singer it was almost as successful as the debut album, but was not able to hit US Billboard 200. Still the net worth of Vanilla increased one more time.

Vanilla Ice is also known as an actor who made several appearances, such as in the movie titled “Cool as Ice” in year 1991, where he performed as John Van Owen. Later he also appeared in movies “Da Hip Hop Withc”, “The New Guy”, “The Helix… Loaded” and “Big Money Rustlas”.

So now you can better understand how rich Vanilla Ice is.
