The Choice Is Yours chronicles Dres’ journey as an MC, rising to fame with Black Sheep on the strength of their iconic single “The Choice Is Yours” and captures him as he works to rediscover the same stratospheric levels of success as an independent artist since the group’s demise. The documentary also features his work in highlighting the ills of the music industry that he’s experienced, sitting down with other artists, journalists, celebrities, and music executives in the process.
“Hip-Hop gives us the opportunity to blow up. It also gives us the opportunity to implode,” Dres says in the trailer. “As we strive to live up to our character, in the mirror we see the champion and challenger knowing the choice is yours.”
The documentary,y directed by Clark Slater, also features Dres’ work on his upcoming album, a special project that showcases his discovery of music from the late legendary producer J Dilla. Slater is best known for his work on the HBO documentary on DMX, Music Box:DMX:Don’t Try To Understand which was released in 2021. The hard drive of beats, which hadn’t been shared with the public until this point are bestowed upon Dres thanks to a chance meeting with someone very close to the producer who tasks him with making the next great Dilla album.
The Choice Is Yours premieres on Paramount+ on Tuesday, November 21. Check out the trailer for the documentary below.
