The original aggressive voice of New Orleans rap and one of the original artists of the famed Cash Money Records. A couple of years after doing sessions with Cash Money at New Orleans producer Don B.'s D.A.R.S. Studio, Mr. Ivan signed with Don B's label Bang'n Records and the rest is history.
He is often compared to Mystikal but in all actuality Mr. Ivan had regional success long before Mystikal came onto the N.O. rap scene. Many people remember Mr. Ivan always wearing a hockey mask at all concerts and public engagements, but as you can see he decided to change his image after signing with Bang'n Records.
