Iviona Hatch was Born in 2001
Boosie Badazz’s daughter was born on December 4, 2001, Hatch Jr. to Torrence Ivy also known as Boosie Badazz. She hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, United States of America. Her mother is Walnita Decuir who was one of Boosie’s first lovers even before he became a household name in the entertainment industry.
She is currently 21 years old and is the oldest child of her father. Iviona Hatch has always had her siblings depend on her because of her position in the family. She described herself as many things including a lyrical genius.
Hatch learned a lot of different things from her parents. While her mother taught her how to respect herself as a lady and other good morals, her father taught her to be street smart and not let anyone cheat her off her money.
She began to Rap when her Dad was Sentenced to Jail
Iviona always knew her father was a rap icon and so picked up on his talent from a very young age. She started to rap at the age of 6/7 and by the time she was 11, already had an album ready.
The young lady used to write most of her songs by herself but had help occasionally. One of her earliest wins was performing for former U.S. president, Barrack Obama during the Presidential inauguration.
Iviona has songs such as ‘Daughter of a King and Queen’ and ‘Pick Your Poison’, and most of her inspiration came from her life experiences. She became fully motivated after her dad was sentenced to jail, being found guilty of drug dealing and murder in 2009.
Some of Iviona’s earliest songs even bordered around her father and his predicament and need for release.
Her mother also got in trouble with the law as she was caught trying to smuggle in drugs for the father of her kids into jail in 2010.
She played around with music while in school although basketball distracted her from focusing. When she graduated from school, Iviona spent more time doing music. She now calls herself Poison Ivy and prefers to use that as her brand name.
She can freestyle but prefers to write her music and especially with no beats. Interestingly, Poison Ivi is an unsigned artiste. She believes she is unique and does her music differently even through her style of dressing and choice of music which she learned from her father.
She has 7 Other Siblings from her Father’s Relationships
Iviona Hatch has 7 other siblings from her father’s 6 relationships. Boosie Badazz has had relationships with Iviona’s mother, Walnita Decuir, Tracey Taylor, Trivia Weatherspoon, Gerlissa Haze, and 2 other women.

Iviona’s step-siblings are named Lyric Hatch, Toriana Hatch, Michael Jordan, and Laira Jean.
Some of her siblings also follow the same path as her and her father in the music industry.
Iviona Hatch’s father never believed in love and marriage because he did not want to lose half of his fortune to divorce settlements in the event that he commits adultery.
She has always been Against Bullying
Poison Ivi has always been against bullying since when she was very young. At the age of 11 and younger, the rapper had already made her stance clear about bullying although she did not suffer from it.
One time, she got into an altercation with someone on social media who had been bullying her sister. The lady also roped Iviona into the situation and the Boosie’s daughter had to defend herself and her sister. Her father also jumped into the defense of his daughters and was proud of Iviona for what she did.
Iviona Hatch Has No Time for Boys
Boosie Badazz’s daughter has no time for boys and romance because she is not interested in them. Iviona Hatch is gay and once made it to social media when she made a post about her and her girlfriend.
This news which began to make news in 2023 had Bossie in a tight spot. The older rapper is famous for his homophobic statements and finding out his daughter is gay was a shocker to a lot of people.
Torrence Ivy Jr. spoke up about it and said he never knew about Iviona’s sexuality. He found out about it on social media. Given that the family comes from a line of religious people and preachers, it was unexpected. According to the older rapper, Poison Ivi has always kept to herself and so didn’t talk to him about it.
Badazz said he would continue to love his daughter nonetheless but wouldn’t want his other family to think it is okay to tow that path.
