(Newser) – Stop, collaborate, and set your DVRs. Ice is back with a second season of "The Vanilla Ice Project," a show on the DIY Network that stars the 44-year-old rapper as he renovates a run-down mansion in Palm Beach County, Florida. Returning on the heels of a hit first season, the peculiar home improvement show will run 13 episodes beginning tomorrow, reports AP.

Vanilla Ice rocketed to fame and wealth in the 1990s with his smash single "Ice Ice Baby." His popularity subsequently plummeted, but not before he shrewdly bought up valuable homes in Miami Beach, Manhattan, Los Angeles, and Utah. "I literally made millions of dollars on them," Ice says. A TV producer spun Ice's real estate hobby into "The Vanilla Ice Project." Says Ice: "I'm showcasing a lot of modern, state-of-the-art home features that you can't even get until 2013."
