An online hoax suggested that the rapper had passed away after a car accident but he took to his Twitter page to reassure his fans that he is fine.
"I don't know who's spreading this rumour about me dying in a car crash but - IM ALIVE !" he wrote.
Vanilla Ice also appeared to express frustration with the hoax, saying: "I have like 30 texts, from mum family and friends."
The 'Ice Ice Baby' star also linked to the source of the hoax and retweeted comments from fans.
Stars such as Madonna and Eddie Murphy are among the other celebrities who have been the subject of death hoaxes in recent months.
