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 production company based out of Miami, FL, & dropped the THANKS E.P. February 2013. Followed by his first full length project I Do What I Want (IDWIW) VOL.1 February 2014. Both projects recorded, mixed & mastered by MBW in their entirety. Experienced to say the least, D.U.Ivan has opened for acts such as Twista, Bubba Sparxxx, Trick Daddy. & MURSDAY. 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.”
