Rapper, Juggalo and Halloween baby Rob Van Winkle AKA Vanilla Ice is a Scorpio, an intense, restless sign often plagued with drama and prone to extreme greatness—or extreme failure.

Back in the  early ’90s Van Winkle’s single “Ice Ice Baby” became the first hip hop single to top the Billboard charts. He dated Madonna and even appeared in her Sex book.

But he soon found himself at the bottom of the barrel, binging on drugs and overdosing on heroin.

In 1999, Van Winkle hit another low when he appeared on MTV to destroy the master tape of the video for “Ice Ice Baby” with a baseball bat.

A true Scorpio, he didn’t just destroy the tape, but the entire set as well.
