History and Backstory: Pete grew up on the “bad side” of Fresno, the son of a bus driving father and a disabled mother (a freak accident that occurred while she was cooking a Thanksgiving chicken ((the Trable’s couldn’t afford a turkey)). His mother could no longer work and the disability check wasn’t enough to keep the family of 6 off Food Stamps and Welfare. Pete was often ridiculed at school for wearing hand-me-downs from his older sister.
Determined to cash in on the “gangsta rap” craze of the early nineties, Pete started rapping for a way out. Then Vanilla Ice screwed all the up for the white boy trying to make it as a legit rapper (just ask Kid Rock). Undaunted, Pete continued to hone his craft, and broke into a local independent wrestling federation to make ends meet, calling himself Vanilla Shake and still rapping in the ring. He tried other names, trying to ride the popularity of Vanilla Ice (Vanilla Pudding, Vanilla Extract, Vanilla Swirl). Nothing worked, so Pete just started using his own name later on after Vanilla Ice’s 15 minutes were up.
Anything else: “Nothin’ foo’, excep’ I’ll pop a cap in your ass.
