Charles "Choyce" Dalton was born January 1 1986 in Springfield Gardens, New York to a father who did some DJ work in his younger days and to mother who also indulged in the Hip Hop culture in the mid 80's. In 1992 CHOYCE moved to Rochdale Village in South Jamaica, Queens, where he became childhood friends with Mark "MAOM" Mclean and Wendell "Bonito" Jordan. Choyce always loved the Hip Hop culture from a young age, but it wasn't until 1998 at the age of twelve that he discovered his musical ability. For years he was told he had musical ability but no one accepted him as an MC with great skill. It wasn't until later in quest for musical greatness that he found out why his words weren't as receptive as they should have been, he didn't have the passion of someone that loved hip-hop. So after a couple years of evaluating his life and practicing his craft, he finally found the nitch he was looking after accepting hip-hop as his life and not just a hobby. These events that caused this transition make up the man that everyone now knows as "CHOYCE".
