Sister of the legendary DJ hall of fame inductee, Hip Hop legend DJ Cash Money; Ivy has a rich musical legacy.

Ivy states her Native American roots as an integral part of her identity and is actively incorporating this in all areas of her career. Ivy wishes to introduce the music listening public to one of the oldest, but least represented nations in the entertainment industry.
