Broadcasting from tha abandoned Belchertown State School for tha Feeble Minded in Belchertown, MA, it's ya boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog here, with a special edition of one of my tribute videos... Today marks eight years since tha sudden death of New Orleans, LA rapper, Mr. Ivan, and now, we're goin' to present you with a lil' tribute:

Today, December 19, 2015, marks eight years since New Orleans, LA native, Ivan Alonzo Newton, known in tha music world as Mr. Ivan, passed away from AIDS complications at only 34 years-old. Known for always wearing a hockey mask, Newton was one of tha early-signed Cash Money Records artists throughout tha '90s. Newton released his debut album, 187 In A Hockey Mask, back in 1994 on Cash Money Records and was featured on various discs by PxMxWx, U.N.L.V., B.G., Kilo G, Lil' Slim, Ms. Tee, Redbonez, CoaCoa, Don B & Lyrical. After bein' connected with fellow N'awlins'er, Don B, Newton would go on to sign with Don B's Bang'n Records, where he released his 2nd album, Resurrection, in 1999, also on Don B Productions. Newton would then move on to form his own label, Mask Entertainment, and released his 3rd and final album, Chapter II, Page I, in 2004 on tha label. If Newton was still alive on his birthday, September 7, he would've turned 42, earlier this year.
