    Momma Says
D.U.Ivan stands for Don’t Underestimate Ivan. More of a statement than a name, that this emcee dubbed himself in an effort to be distinguished from the still over saturated hip hop market.
Focusing on his solo career, he started working very closely with MIAMI BEAT WAVE (MBW), a very well known & respected producer based out of Miami, FL, & together they have dropped three full length projects: THANKS E.P., I Do What I Want (IDWIW) VOL.1 , IDWIW VOL.2.: CONFESSIONS OF A STONER. All three projects recorded, mixed & mastered by MBW in their entirety. An experienced performer to say the least, aside from going on tour with Strange Music's MAYDAY!, D.U.Ivan has opened for acts such as Trick Daddy, Raekwon, Havoc of Mobb Deep, Dead Prez, Rittz, & Bone Thugs & Harmony! Even though he produces the majority of his music, Ivan says he loves to work with other producers,
“…music is inspiration for me. When I make beats, obviously I vibe to them, they come from within, but when you hear something new, thats dope, it’s like a surprise. Kind of like working out. For the best results you have to shock the system. & thats what it’s like when I hear new music. A beautiful shock to my system that I love to react to.”
D.U.Ivan is #AlwaysClockedIn (as he likes to say) whether writing &/or producing music, acting, traveling to spread the word of the #StillDreamin movement, or editing one of his music videos. This is why he is next up!
