I.K.E. is an acronym for Iron Kladd Entertainment which consist of Corey Drumz The Ceo(rapper/singer/songwriter/recording engineer/President/CEO), Kirk Bananno The Underboss(rapper/songwriter/VP of Corp. Affairs) and Lee Boogz The Young Exec(currently incarcerated). Our musical style ranges from gritty street hip hop, commercial rap to soul/rnb, so whatever your musical preference I guarantee we have something for you to enjoy.
Corey Drumz is the youngest son of respected BMI award winning songwritter/composer Larry Banks and founder/CEO of Iron Kladd Entertainment otherwise known as I.K.E.. Concieved in 1997 and incorporated in 2003, I.K.E. was formed out of Corey’s frustration with labels who had neither the capability nor the willingness to nurture its hip hop artists effectively. Corey, a single father with 4 children, is also a recording artist who was formally signed to Columbia Records and various others, felt the best way for his music and the music of many other emerging artists to reach its fullest potential was to create a vehicle dedicated to that pursuit. Iron Kladd Entertainment was born in 2003 and has since then has recruited the likes of artists such as Lee Boogz and Kirk Bananno and Corey has never looked back.
Hailing from Lefrak City, Queens New York, Kirk Bananno is a trend setting hip-hop artist who also specializes in the writing of r&b music. Kirk was introduced to hip-hop music at the tender age of 8, fell in love with the art-form and has since then dedicated his life to using his lyrics as a tool to inform, entertain, as well as uplift the masses who are fans of hip-hop and r&b music. After 12 years of coming up empty handed dealing with the politics and red-tape of the modern day music industry, in the year 2007 Kirk Bananno met with Corey Drumz (Founder and CEO of Iron Kladd Entertainment, Inc.) to conduct a recording session in his IKE HITZ STUDIOS based in Brentwood, N.Y. . Ironically, both parties native neighborhoods were from the same area of New York (Queens) Corey being from [ Hollis] and Kirk being from [Lefrak City]. Having that in common they immediately hit it off and built an indescribable chemistry with one another while creating music. Within a few months after the two meeting with each other, Kirk joined forces with Corey as well as Corey's then artist next in line, Lee Boogz(also from Hollis, Queens), to form the jauggernaut that the public now knows as I.K.E..
Corey Drumz and Kirk Bananno are also a songwriting team named "The Rhythm Writers" so any urban/hip hop artists that need great songs penned, hoffa at us. We write hits.
We are also developing other artists under our I.K.E. brand such as AB 151, so be on the lookout for him soon.
