CARBON COPY, the latest single from Seattle powerhouse Choklate, is a visual day-in-the-life tour of what it truly means to “Do You.” From “Soul Sock Wars” and Tea Time to Cigar Bars and Night Life, Carbon Copy reminds us although we live a world where individually is rare and it is sometimes easier to borrow someone else’s style & tweak it, you must resist the urge to be down “cool crowd” and create your own. Featuring cameos by Dwele, Daru Jones (drummer), Fuse Green (graphic artist), Monica Blaire, Zo!, Skyzoo and more, the song is an anthem for every true artists who embraces their own creativity thus never being a Carbon Copy. 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.
