I found out that the issue is that the graphical "splash" screen that asks for the passphrase that is causing the issue with Nvidia drivers.
The fix is to remove the graphical splash and switch to pure text mode. Like that, I get a text passphrase prompt and then it goes on to boot the GUI without issue.
