Conscious and comical are the words that best describe DJ Charlie Chaplin. He is among the most respected toasters in Jamaica, noted for speaking out against slackness and violence in his music.

Under the guidance of U-Roy and surrounded by youths such as Jim Kelly, who helped to popularize the Kilimanjaro Sound System, Charlie Chaplin was growing in status as a sound and conscious Roots-DJ from his early years on. Songs like "Mother in Law", "Chaplin Chant" or "Naw Leave Me Chalwa"did very well for him internationally.

During his successful career he has given us albums such as "Two Sides of Charlie Chaplin", "Take Two", "Cry Blood", "Old & New Testament", and "Too Hot to Handle".
