Vanilla Ice has been involved in real estate since he was a teen. His current property ventures include buying, developing and selling.
“Financially I’ve made some pretty good investments in real estate. I just enjoy it. Yesterday’s history is tomorrow’s mystery, and I just get in where I fit in,” Ice said in a recent interview.
‘The Vanilla Ice Project’ is set to air on the DIY Network starting October 14.
