TMNT Beats: Wiz Khalifa's 'Shell Shocked' vs. Vanilla Ice's 'Ninja Rap'

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

For whatever reason, those who are nostalgic about the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies have a soft spot in their heart for the overwhelmingly 90s rap track "Ninja Rap (Go Ninja Go!)" by Vanilla Ice. The song was prominently featured in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and there are few children of the 90s who don't recall this hit single. And now, keeping in the tradition of the films, and mostly just keeping up with today's crazy music trends, Wiz Khalifa is the hip-hop mastermind behind "Shell Shocked," a track from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arriving next month. Now it's up to you to decide which one is better (or rather worse) after checking out the new single below. Listen!

Here's Wiz Khalifa's "Shell Shocked" from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (via Atlantic Records):

And here's Vanilla Ice's "Ninja Rap (Go Ninja Go!)" for some rap battle comparison:

And just for good measure here's Partners in Kryme's "Turtle Power" from the first film:

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder (William Fichtner) and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Clash of the Titans) and written by Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol). Paramount Pictures releases the film everywhere on August 8th.

I just teared a little, such great memories. I couldn't help but laugh at Juicy J doing a Ninja Turtle tune but he's really become a great artist.

Both songs are shit, but Vanilla Ice's is just less shit.

I give Vanilla Ice points for originality and really embracing the theme. I don't know what this mainstream crap is but it just sounds like a buncha guys high off their butts who don't care at all doing it. Who the heck wouldn't be excited to do a TMNT theme!? At least with the Vanilla Ice song you had the beat and the lyrics most importantly that were always constantly upbeat.

Vanilla Ice kills all. Disappointed that MC Hammer's "This is what we do" from the original TMNT flick isn't on here. That's truly the winner

and i can't even express how much i hate that there's a rapper out there named "Ty Dolla $ign" and i had the misfortune of seeing him live.

Anyone who isn't stuck in the 90's would agree that Shell Shocked is leaps and bounds better than that Vanilla Ice BS!

Anyone that picked Wiz Khalifa over Ninja Rap needs to stay off the internet…..for good. Not even a contest. Wiz is horrible. Fact that people consider that noise "music" is mind numbing.

You just don't understand him. He's awesome

i want to take a wiz on khalifa's song... it does not even compare to the awesome GO NINJA GO NINJA GO !!!

Its really a race for the bottom on this one. Lyrics and beat wise the new song has a lot more going for it, but you just can't compare the hooks. Go Ninja Go Ninja Go....is iconic at this point. I don't think anyone's going to remember the shellshocked hook because its buried underneath all the back beat. To be honest I think the best of the three as far as being applicable to the movie is the Partners in Kryme, Turtle Power.

I'd pick Ninja Rap any day (even though it kind of sucks too). That Wiz dude is lame as hell.

Ninja Rap without Vanilla Ice is such as Scarface without Al Pacino. Or NWA without Ice-Cube. Or Bad Boys without Will Smith. Everyone has their personality. Vanilla Ice is one of the Ninja Turtless like Mick Jagger to the Roling Stones. I do not watch the movie. Actually, the fans sometimes collect money and make their own turtless movie with their own director and cast.

I think the original "Turtle Power" by Partners in Kryme is the best of the three. Why isn't this one included in poll?
