Stop what you're doing and watch/listen to this interview right now. Plug OneTwo gives his best Charlie Rose impersonation and provides a thorough and thoughtful interview of Mr. Choc unlike 99% of DJ/Producer interviews you've heard. While listening to Mr. Choc discuss a dark period in his life and his eventual recovery, I couldn't help but think about all of the other deejays/producers/emcees that never got the "second chance" Choc did. Highly Recommended.
