Biography

Alonzo “Mr. Ivan” Newton, from Congress St. in the 9th Ward, New Orleans. He is one of the original artists of the famed Cash Money Records. 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.

His debut album 187 In A Hockey Mask (1994) is solid all theway through and showcases his dynamic style. Despite all he is one of Cash Money’s under-appreciated rappers, although it wasn’t for want of effort, with Mr. Ivan memorably performing live in a hockey mask. A couple of years after doing sessions with Cash Money at producer Don B’s D.A.R.S. Studio, Mr. Ivan signed with his lable Bang’n Records. He released his second album Resurrection in 1999.

Mr. Ivan died on December 19, 2007 of AIDS related complications at just 34 years of age.
