NJ crew "Da Chozen" consist of Eshawn, T-Smooth, Big Bunk, B-Hop, Shortcutt (R.I.P), and Dj Tab DiBiassi, all born and raised in Silk City.

"When tragedy struck the group in 1993 with the sudden passing of group member Shortcutt, the group took a major dive. They group members were all childhood friends and with Shortcutt being considered the heart of the group his untimely passing sent them into a depressed state and had them contemplating not continuing making music. However knowing that Shortcutt would have not wanted any thing to stop their progress the group continued to do what they loved most ... Group member Eshawn who also coproduced the Ep, with DJ M.A.T.E handling the bulk of the production, wrote all the songs."

Chopped Herring: CHTOUCH401 ft. L The Head Toucha

Larry Ansah released one of these mid 90s 12" inches that made it on almost every mixtape. From New York Reality Check 101 to Stretch Armstrong's Lession 1 "Too Complex" became a real underground hit. Let's talk about L The Head Toucha and his cooperation with Chopped Herring Records.

It wasn't for a year or so that the single "Too Complex" was recorded. L recorded several tracks with the VA crew and 6 of these previously unreleased joints appear on this record. This dude shoulda definitely blown up at that time and this project, if released off the back of the "Too Complex" joint would have surely caused a devastating tsunami on the underground Hip Hop scene. Better late that never. [source]

A2: Rain
A3: Dead Man
B1: Sesame Street Hood
B2: Shady Niggaz
B3: All In Together Now
