Chozen started in the music industry at Suave House Records in 1995 and experienced a successful career and development strategy for music artists. She has worked with Eightball and MJG, Tela, Jazzy Pha, T-Mix, CrimeBoss, Mr. Mike, At-Large, Puffy, Easy-E, Scarface, Bushwick, Lil KeKe, Fat Pat, the Wreckshop Records staff and more. She helped to establish productive, collaborative relationships with Suave House and Bad Boy Records, as well as Ruthless Records. Chozen Marie saw Suave House through to the success of their signing with Universal Records and moved into the Education Industry after their demise.
As a writer and poet she has been published in the Source Magazine, XXL and Billboard Magazine. Her final poetic stanza written while at Suave House appears on the cover of MJG's solo album, "No More Glory."
In September of 2009, Chozen Marie returned to her first love, launching Breaking the Labels and her first successful music industry kick-off event for Indie Artists in the Houston area. Through Breaking the Labels, Vanessa Chozen Marie has assisted many Indie Artists in their plight to seek exposure and access to the industry. Since the forming of Breaking the Labels, she has been successful in adding other outlets to assist artists to gain that exposure, through the 97.6 BreakIt! Radio station and BreakIt! Distribution, which provides distribution to more than 700 media outlets.
Having a passion for this industry and youth, she incorporates much of her work in the entertainment industry with the youth involved in her non-profit youth organization, Saving Our Children Foundation. Her hope is to tear down walls and break down the labels in society that divide us.
