Shawn Antoine Ivy (born 1972), better known by his stage name Domino, is an American rapper and record producer from Long Beach, California. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Ivy was raised in Long Beach and was member of the Rollin 20s Long Beach Crips street gang. He successfully auditioned for the Bloods & Crips project in the early 1990s, and appeared on the 1993 album Bangin' on Wax under the stage name Genuine Draft. Ivy then embarked on a solo career as Domino, and released his self-titled debut album in December 1993. The album spawned two major hits, including "Getto Jam", which reached #7 on the US Billboard Hot 100. 

His second album, Physical Funk, was released in 1996. Although two of its singles reached the top 20 of the Hot Rap Singles chart, it failed to match the commercial success of its predecessor. Since then, Domino has released an additional six albums, but only one, D-Freaked It, reached the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, where it peaked at 95. 

Ivy is a born again Christian.
