Receiving the blessing of becoming the pastor of one of the oldest churches and amazing choirs in Los Angeles – Travelers Rest Missionary Baptist Church – Ivan began his journey of ministering for the lord and communities heavily affected by the crack epidemic of the 1980s. The music would bring Ivan back to his musical roots, but before long, the outside world would penetrate Ivan’s haven, and his compositions would be pirated by some of hip-hop’s biggest names and game-changers. Despite the constant assaults against his spirit, Ivan held strong and resolved to stay alive and expose the dastardly deeds done to those loved by hip-hop fans worldwide. Waging war against Ivan’s dedication and talent, Dr. Dre would stop at literally nothing – not even murder – to protect his rise to stardom in one of the most coveted genres of music in the world. Using blatant evidence, common sense, and experience, Ivan overcomes homelessness and solves the supposedly unsolvable murders of Easy-E, Tupac Shakur, and Biggie Smalls.
