Run, run baby! Rob Van Winkle, a.k.a. Vanilla Ice, found himself in a bizarre heap of trouble on Friday when he got caught in the tornadoes which hit towns outside of Nashville, Tennessee. The rapper (who is poised to embark on a comeback tour with fellow industry veteran MC Hammer) suddenly found himself in a scene from the Wizard of Oz.

“We were just in the middle of a huge tornado, in Nashville,” Van Winkle told “Saw a house, truck, flying in the air! Wow! Dodged a bullet!”

The tornadoes left 30 people in the hospital, uprooted power lines, and destroyed at least ten homes on one road alone. No deaths have been reported.
