Vanilla Ice, Juggalos, and Hot Mamis Rage at the Zoo: "Word to Your Mother, Miami!"

What exactly lured Juggalos, happy drunks, and hot Miami mamis to a rager at the zoo?

Well, all-you-can-drink beer. (Unfortunately, no spiked Faygo Red Pop.) But also, as New Times' Brew at the Zoo master of ceremonies Notorious Nastie excitedly croaked: "You've seen him on TV! And you've seen him every time that there's been someone with a hi-top fade and the lines in the side! He's sold more records than all you bastards put together! You don't have to be a Juggalo to love him!

"Scream for Vanilla Ice!"

Buzzed off Miami Vice IPA, free Swisher Sweets, and complimentary e-cigs, the party people mobbed the BATZ main stage at Zoo Miami, chanting choice To the Extreme lyrics and trying not to fall on their asses while doin' the running man.

"Everybody here's had 600 ounces of beer," Mr. Notorious (perhaps accurately) reported, "and we're reeeeeeaaaaaady."

Further hyping the imminent arrival of the Ice man, Nastie, accompanied by the homie Otto Von Schirach, joked: "I know this is Miami and you're all powered by haterade.

"But I want you to squeeze in! Nut to butt, people! Nut to butt! Feel something in the front and the back!"

"Welcome to the platinum-selling artist, reality TV hoster, my ninja and your ninja ... Vanilla Ice!"

And that's when Ice finally emerged.

He popped out from the fringed gut of an inflatable, skull-faced grim reaper, bounding 'round through fake smoke and a red gloom while barking, "I'm from the dirty, dirty South!"

"That's family love," Vanilla said, shouting out the Juggalos and 305ers. "I'm happy to be in Miami, bitch!"

What a great event!!! Brew & food was great. Met a lot of home brewers. Really impressive.

Also the entertainment was on point. I'm glad they had Nassie host the event. A local Miami guy on stage. He made the wait for Vanilla Ice very entertaining. And a great bonus surprise was the few songs Otto performed. No one expected that. He rocked the stage.

Nassie, Otto, Van Winkle, all that was needed was Trick and Uncle Luke to complete the 305 royal family! So mad I wasn't here for this one, much love to my 305 fam!

This is exactly what Nastie does best: takes acts you wouldn't expect, puts them in just the right space, turns the venue into his personal madhouse, then tears the damn roof off the place and leaves some of the most amazingly ridiculous party memories of a lifetime.  He and Otto are such a big part of what makes the Miami nightlife so legendary.  These guys know how it's done! Keep killing 'em Nastie!

So happy to see my big homie Notorious Nastie making moves . While he spends time making major career moves, he still finds the time to help others further their careers. Myself for example, because of him, ive been able to perform on shows and meet artists that i never wouldve dreamt was possible. Dude has opened the door, and been a complete blessing to my life. To think this is just the start... WHEW! So happy to see my dude doing BIG things . Much love.

As I read this article I can actually hear the iconic rasp of Nasties voice in my head; I can see his face, eyes wide open you can see the excitement in his pupils! Nastie was born to do this... and it's exactly who he is. He's been like this since the day I met him 13 years ago as I tried to give him the cold shoulder... that didn't last long..We became good friends ;) I was drawn in, he's an a**hole for sure and I didn't make it easy for him.. Anyways I ended up with a BooBooKittyFuk tattoo on my ankle for Nastie... that's the nickname he decided on for me after a love - hate debate while driving on Biscayne on the way to his apartment before he graduated to living in the Grand... I remember it like yesterday and until now no one but Nastie and myself knew why and what that tatt was.. until today I'm his BooBooKittyFuk. He's always been made for show business! Since the days of mud wrestling, to the beginning of the 420 festival, to touring with Otto, to sailing in the pirate ship and now a household name when it comes to the Miami nightlife scene. Proud of you babe :)

This is awesome! Nastie is an amazing Nightlife Personality in Miami and really knows how to rev up an audience not to mention how to introduce a celeb! 

And who can hate on Vanilla Ice? Really?!? At least he did something and everyone knows his name!

Awesome! I can't think of a more steller lineup than Nastie, Otto, and the I-C-E.
