DANTE BRIGGINS: SMART AND TALENTED MODEL WHO IS AN UP AND COMING MOVIE STAR!

I met Dante at Gold’s Gym while promoting 2013 Jersey City Fashion Week in Upstate New York. He is back with a passion, and a successful Screen Actor as well.

How we met:                                                                                                                      The trainers at Gold’s Gym told me there was a Trainer/Model I needed to meet, it was Dante.  He was a very serious trainer with a passion: he had drive and focus.. I knew he was special and invited him to be a part of Jersey City Fashion Week’s Super Bowl XLVIII’s Football Fashion Week.  Respectively and humbly he agreed. Now Dante is Superman!

There is no wonder Jersey City Fashion Week is doing their sixth show and celebration the its Fifth anniversary . The sixth show was a special event for Super Bowl XLVII for the host Hudson County Huddle Committee featuring former Super Bowl Champions and current players as well as Film and Screen actors Marc John Jefferies and Justiin Davis. Jersey City. has a rich tapestry for creativity with its views of the Statue of Liberty , the Hudson River and the Manhattan Skyline.. Its downtown area with its malls and shops envy’s many american cities and being next door to the Hoboken, N.J. birthplace of Frank Sinatra there are numerous reasons why stars are born there. IMIPress will be on hand for this exciting celebration of Fashion and Music of many genres and cultures. A reality show should be a potential project in the near future. After being approached by Bravo last year, I would be looking on the radar for that.  Harlem Phenom Films Online

Brick by brick, step by step, we have managed to make waves in this bizarre industry. Our product line consists entirely of boxer briefs at the moment, however this is only the beginning. We secured a licensing deal which grants us access to certain patented patterns for men’s swimwear, which will anchor our full Spring & Summer collection. We pride ourselves on being TRUE AMERICAN DESIGNERS. Everything is designed, sourced, & manufactured in the USA. Furthermore, we also pride ourselves in the fact we are completely vertical.

Rapping, dancing and singing are only the beginning of what’s this talented beautiful artist from rough streets of Newark NJ is capable of.

After the college bills and her success in College! Nana couldn’t ignore her true calling! She simply couldn’t ignore the one thing she truly loved! A new era has manifested its self and she has now shifted to recording a variation of styles of hip-hop from lyrical which she’s known for, to more melodic flows like in her Debut single ” nobody’s business” ( We Lit )  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pzj1Gjog3LA&feature=youtu.be  Miss Nana was determined to give her long lost fans more than just lyrics this time around.

Fresh from inking a single deal with Major Independent eOne for hit single “In My Zone” featuring label mate Cascio, Chad B is confident 2016 will be his time to shine!  As Chad B puts it “Focus is the new IQ and nothing will distract me from my goals!”

2015 proved to be a great year for the Newark NJ native signing with Indie Label Global Empire Music Group, literally shut down Hot97’s “Who’s Next” show at the historic NYC SOBS’s and a memorable SXSW 2015 All Hip Hop performance. Chad B also toured with DipSet and Freakey Zeekey performing summer smash “We Hustle” ft. Lil Wayne across the country with European dates in Dubai, Germany, and Amsterdam. Chad B is and has been arguably one of the hardest working acts in the Music Industry.

The talented 28 year old was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey to a single mother and is the oldest of six siblings. Growing up, Chad took to music at an early age. Eventually, friends from his neighborhood, North 9th Street and 4th Avenue, encouraged Chad to hone his craft. At the tender age of 8, Chad was determined to use his music as an avenue to make it out of the streets. Some of Chad’s influences include Tupac, Jadakiss, Jay-Z and of course New Jersey natives, Naughty By Nature.

Aside from his Hip Hop roots, Chad B is arguably the sole driving force behind the re-creation of EDM music genre “Jersey Club”.  A sound he has since defined as “Hyrbid EDM”, which combines high energy, fast-paced beats with smooth harmonized catchy lyrics. Between his eccentric style, humble demeanor and profound lyrical content, Chad B is a refreshing look into the soul of both Hip Hop and Dance music.

Feeling the strong urge to reconnect with his most loyal fans Chad B is focused on a delivering his first Dance album entitled “Ear Candy” summer 2016. Chad B stated, “I am eager to get back in the EDM & dance circuits with this album, I am very anxious to let the world hear my new sound and production!”

“What you put into this game is what determines your return & my return will be my legacy”

– Chad B

Repping  Jersey to the fullest. In My Zone a hot hit by  Cascio and Rapper Chad B  heard here on Hot 97 with DJ Enuf  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otbNInJJeRghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCoAmma59DI

Watching the two voices behind the up-tempo club smash “In My Zone”, it’d be easy to mistake Chad B & Cascio — the latest signees to Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) — as longtime friends. While the Jersey natives have enjoyed solo recognition, their work as a duo began less than a year ago.  “We met completely random,” says Cascio of the group’s origins. “I had made ‘In My Zone’ two summers ago. I got a little buzz, but nothing really happened with it.  A friend of mine heard it and brought it to Chad’s attention, but I didn’t even know that he knew about it.” Chad nods in agreement while Cas continues. “I was in a studio doing a verse for somebody else. He was there doing a verse for someone else… You could say it was fate.”
