Biography

 Born and raised in Austin, IKE was certain to make it big. He has been writing rhymes since he was 11 years old. He first started his rap career with his long time friend, Josh and Polo, as a rap trio called "O.B.T". "O.B.T." released "Gram Cracker" in 2008 while recording together, Although IKE isn't apart of O.B.T., the three members still remain good friends. IKE continued to believe in himself and his unique style, and there was someone else that believed in him also. His cousin, who was owner of Latin Action Records , decided that it was time for IKE's unique style to be heard. One day Joe Contreras asked to hear a song of Ike's, By the next week IKE was in the studio recording a verse for the cut, "Imma Soulja Boy", off of 512 Mafia's un released album, Since then, it has been nothing but up hill for IKE. He dropped a album under iTunes digital distribution in 2009. His level of creativity for rhyming has continued to rise over the past year. 
   On Feb. 23, 2010 IKE was arrested and charged with assault on a public servant. After being placed on probation, now out of jail, IKE began writing "Times Up which was the first single off of  "Time Is MonEy" which was originally set to released mid 2011. However everything was being to become unsettling with Latin Action Records.
In October 2011, Latin Action Records as a label was put on hiatus due to CEO/Owner Joe Contreras who was serving a three year prison sentence for drug possession.
