The Arkansas Razorbacks have another celebrity fan besides Jerry Jones, apparently.
Rapper Vanilla Ice lives in Florida, but he told KFSM’s Charlie Edwards that he’s a fan of the Hogs thanks to his personal connections to the state and the school.
“I’ve been through Fort Smith, I’ve been to Arkansas,” he said. “I’m a Razorbacks fan. I’ve got friends that went to (the University of Arkansas).”
The artist made the comments after a concert in the River Valley area Friday.
“We’ve been through the dirty south many, many times,” the rapper said. “We get in where we fit in. We bring the party to you.”
South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp recently invited Snoop Dogg to practice after discovering one of his players knew the hip-hop star. No word yet on if Bret Bielema will extend the same courtesy to Robert Matthew Van Winkle.
