    Chozen was super tight, yes the content is not for sensitive viewers but the select few of us that are hip hop fans really enjoyed the creativity in the rhyme schemes and flow of “Chozen” and “Phantasm”. The jokes were on point too. Please bring back Chozen, don’t let stats and figures dictate what people enjoy watching

    I personally enjoyed watching chozen… I never missed an episode an when I heard they cancelled it i was really pissed. Im comfortable saying that chozen was in my top 3 being #1 of my favorite shows. I wish they would consider the 0.3 rating percentage of the people that watched chozen and that they would air another season. I dont see why not
