Vanilla Ice Marquee

Suge Knight Hung Vanilla Ice Off Of A Hotel Balcony

The Rumors: Following the success of Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby,” Death Row Records Suge Knight  and several very large men allegedly approached Vanilla Ice while he was eating at the Palms Hotel in West Hollywood. After demanding that he hand over the publishing rights to his song, Suge hung Ice over the balcony and got him to agree to sign the rights over to his company, which went on to help fund Death Row Records.

The Truth: According to a recent interview, the stories have been slightly exaggerated but the core remains true. While Ice denies that he was hung over any balcony, he admitted that Suge was rather pleasant in their encounter and that he signed over a piece of the publishing of the song to him.
