"Although Ivan Ives got roots in mother Russia, don't expect this dude to mostly spit raps about the former hammer and sickle country. Oh and don't take this guy lightly either. He's got rhymes that hammer and sickle the ears and then stamps a red star on the brain. "The White Russian, ain't a bitch drink, tight percussion, plus I make these kids think," spits the LA native on his track with Wu member Cappadonna on "Honor." Much like fellow Russian and current Pride Fighting champ Fedor Emelianenko, Ives' got the all lyrical skill and ability to become a microphone champion."
