Shawn Antoine Ivy,[1] known as Domino, is an American rapper born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in Long Beach, California.[2] Being a Crip himself, he auditioned for Bloods & Crips collaboration in the early 1990s.[3] He is the first rapper, in order of appearance, in the title track Bangin' on Wax on the album of the same name. His debut album Domino spawned two major hits in the United States[4], including the Top 10 hit "Getto Jam", which reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. Several further albums were released, and Domino continued to score hits on the R&B charts into the 2000s.

However, while his debut album was critically well received, Domino was thought to have stolen then up-and-coming rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg's style and therefore boycotted.[5] Three years later, Domino released his second album, Physical Funk, which failed to become as successful as its predecessor.
