Born in Seattle, WA and raised in San Diego, Choklate has always in one
way or another been involved with music or dance. Her career began at
the age of 23 in Seattle at one of it’s most famous live music nights,
Jumbalaya. She was raised on Gospel, but was introduced to hip-hop by
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s “Parents Just Don’t Understand”.
Beside the gospel, it was hard for Choklate to hear much soul music at
home, so when finally out on her own, she recalls having her ear to
everything from Bach and Yo Yo Ma to Brotha Lynch Hung.-Last.fm
