MP3: Vanilla Ice "Born on Halloween" Featuring Violent J of Insane Clown Posse

Earlier this week, County Grind highlighted Vanilla Ice's list of his top five rappers to get a little closer to what the sound of "Born on Halloween," the South Florida resident's new track with Insane Clown Posse's Violent J, would be like. We had no idea we'd hear the line "Ladies call him Alfred because they're all over his Hitchcock" in the midst of this spooky arrangement by ICP producer Mike E. Clark.

Anyways, the track popped up today for free download on the rapper's official site with this note: "Hey everyone!

This is it! "Born on Halloween" until 10-31-10, featuring ICP from the up and coming release of "WTF"!

This is not mastered yet and the mix may be a little rough until the record comes out.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!!!"

Incidentally, October 31 is actually Robert Van Winkle's birthday

(Violent J was born on the unspooky April 28) -- and Guided by Voices'

Robert Pollard, ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, and young Willow "Whip My Hair" Smith

(spawn of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith) also share the day.
