1990 Hit Ice Ice Baby, in which he blatantly rips off a 1982 Queen riff from Under Pressure. Inexplicably sells 15 million copies. Settles out of court with Queen/Bowie. Ice claims Suge Knight forced the issue at gunpoint: "He took me over to the balcony, and he had me look over. He says to me, 'You're gonna sign these papers'… I signed it. I gave millions away." http://www.rotten.com/library/bio/entertainers/music/vanilla-ice/
