ABOUT IOAN

Burgeoning rapper/producer Ioan (pronounced Yo-an) Delice has been increasingly expanding New York’s underground rap scene and his horizons.

Born January 13, 1994, the Brooklyn native of French/Haitian descent is inspired by an eclectic range of artists – from Hip Hop legend Big L, to France’s most popular and enduring singer Charles Aznavour. As an ambassador to his generation, Ioan also pays homage to the cartoons that formed his childhood and taps the creative influence of reputable composer Jim Lang and Japanese Hip Hop producer Nujabes – who have written scores for Hey! Arnold and Samurai Champloo respectively.

Ioan’s artistry also draws it’s inspiration from having grown up in Kings County, widely recognized as the rap capital of the world, at a time when it’s gritty reputation held true. The musician’s explorations of romantic, spiritual, interpersonal, and societal themes, mixed with his playful and unorthodox style of rapping, breaks hip-hop boundaries with new artistic expression. Through his soulful meandering and multi-cultural influence, Ioan fearlessly delves into the creative process of his talent and is continuously expanding his audience by delivering songs that escape the fleet of trends.
