Vanilla Ice was the first famous white rapper with his first single 'Ice Ice Baby' being the biggest selling record ever, selling over 17 million copies.
Although the fame was short lived, the Ice man influenced many white rappers today, Ice was the first white man to have the balls to do what was mainly considered black only music.
