First Class Corner

ATN: Do you really need to introduce yourself. Everybody knows FCPI Top Model and now Aspiring Writer Ms. Brionna Hardemon. Well, introduce yourself for those that are not familiar.
Brionna: Hello aspiring as you all have read in the opening line my name is Brionna Hardemon and I’m a model and writer born and raised in Miami- Dade County.

ATN: When did you get started with FCPI?
Brionna: I started with FCPI in about 2002, but I took a break off to have my daughter and in 2005 I was back on the grind.

ATN: There are a lot of modeling groups, agencies, model management companies that offer all types of work for their models. What type of job assignments does FCPI provides for their members?
Brionna: FCPI provides what ever job you want to be in as long as it is classy and tasteful.

ATN: I read your article and it was Jazzy. Will our readers be reading more of your articles?
Brionna: You better believe it. Check out my article titled "MIC Check 1, 2," Brionna is in the building to stay!

ATN: If you could interview one person who would it be and why?
Brionna: That one person would be Tip Harris for those that don’t know Tip "TI" Harris who’s album "King" just drop(03-28-06) and also his first movie ATL in theater as of 03-31-06.
Why? His style and I would love to sit down just to have a one on one even if it is business. He just gives me goose bumps. Need I say more?
ATN: WOW! sounds like somebody's got the hots!

ATN: Other than First Class Productions, what other modeling groups are you with or have worked with?
Brionna: When I first started out I was with a company named Image.

ATN: Have you worked with any of the other members? If so who and what was the assignment?
Brionna: Yes, I’ve work with Renee (several times), Tamika, Dannitra, and Aruna at the MTV Awards 2005.

ATN: Is it true that models can be a Bitch and have a Diva attitude?
Brionna: Yes that's true, but you don’t have to be a model to be a Bitch or a Diva.

ATN: Have you had any experiences with models (male/female) that portrayed the bitch and/or the Diva? If so, we want to know all the details (LOL)
Brionna:Yes, I have, but there's really no details to give. I just politely put that person in his or her place and continue to be professional about the situation. ATN: Oh you're goood

ATN: Describe an assignment that was obtained through FCPI that was not so great.
Brionna: My first bad experience was that Damn Apple Bottom casting. For one it was unorganized and more of a freak casting. The judge that was judging me at the time totally ignored me and started watching a model that was making her booty clap. That was very tacky.

ATN: Have you been featured in any music videos?
Brionna: No, I'm not really into being a video vixen.

ATN: How do you feel about the models that are featured in the music videos?
Brionna: It's their decision if that’s how they want people to see them. If so, remember aim for the #1 spot.

ATN: What are your thoughts on “Confessions of a Video Vixen?”
Brionna: Ms. Karrine Steffans had some issues she wanted to address and also make money while doing it. So she comes up with the book "Confessions of a Video Vixen." One thing if you are going to air your dirty laundry don’t be afraid of the feedback and questions you are going to get and never ever dedicate your dirty laundry to your child. (Hint Karrine)

ATN: Has FCPI made it easier to get your foot in the door?
Brionna: Honestly, yes FCPI has opened so many doors for me and I’m thankful being a part of FCPI.

ATN: How tall are you without heels?
Brionna: Look at the picture how tall do I look. Yes, you guess 6 feet ( Sike Ms. Brionna stands tall at 5”4 ½ ( yes in a half give me my half of an inch).

ATN: Does FCPI have any height or weight requirements to join their group?
Brionna: No, No, No that’s one of the things that make FCPI unique.

ATN: Have you ever thought about competing on America’s Next Top Model?
Brionna: I attended a casting here in Miami, but I was not selected because Tyra is looking for green giants not us short and petite women.

ATN: FCPI is affiliated with other companies in the business, and if they were able to hook you up with one important contact who would it be and why?
Brionna: Look back at question # 5 Clifford “TIP” Harris

ATN: We all have a million goals that we would like to achieve. What is your primary goal in this business?
Brionna: Not just to make it in the business, but to learn about the business on stage and off.

ATN: There are many aspiring individuals that are seeking the same thing. What advice can you give them that will assist them in seeking their goals?
Brionna: There are going to be a lot of doors closing, but keep knocking until the right door opens. Remember, who wants to go in the first door that opens without doing history. With that being said don’t dive at the first thing approached to you make sure you weigh your options.

ATN: Wait! Don’t you have a deadline to meet? Our time is up! Please before you go, let the ATN readers know what’s coming up for Brionna Hardemon, i.e. fashion shows, competitions, photo shoots, web groups, websites, appearances etc.
Brionna: Well, on April 7-9 I was featured in a Bridal Show in the Bahamas, I have two photo shoots coming up one with a local designer and one to update my portfolio. Also, in May I will be featured in a fashion show produced by FCPI featuring the Rebelwear collections designs by Pierre Etienne on Memorial's Day at Mellow Mondays.

MIC Check 1, 2 By Brionna Hardemon

Hello ATN it's your writer Brionna once again with the hottest review ever. Yes, my favorite artist Tip "T.I." Harris.

What can I say, T.I. has done it again. Now I know you’ve heard his last three albums and his last 3 mix tapes, then Trap Musik and Urban Ledge, but now he's back and bigger than ever with his hot new album “King”. In my opinion he has earned the title "King of the South." This 18 track CD is tight work and it's hard to
say which track is my favorite. We all know that his #1 single "What you Know" is blowing up the charts, but the entire CD is banging. Take my advice and purchase the CD, pop it in your CD player, IPOD or MP3 player and ride and listen. When I say ride and listen, that means listen to both the lyrics and the beats. There is no reason to keep this review long, because I don't want to delay your time in purchasing his CD. And please don't buy the Bootleg copy. I give Tip "T.I." Harris 10 Model Smiles :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)


Hey ATN readers I'm here with a treat for you to meet and greet Ms. Natasha an Aspiring Model and Actress.

TA-S: When did you first develop an interest in modeling and acting?

Natasha: Modeling has always been something fun for me to do, and I have never really dreamed of an acting career until i had a chance to be on a set and see the energy of it. That was this past summer, and I've been pursuing it ever since.

TA-S: Have you studied acting?

Natasha: Only briefly.

TA-S: How have you been preparing for the modeling aspect of your entertainment career?

Natasha: I have been in several fashion shows to build my resume, and getting enough time behind the lenses, trying to master the photography aspect.

TA-S: So if you had to choose between stage and film---which would you choose and why?

Natasha: I would choose film at first. Then go into stage. It seems as if every seasoned actor has to have some experience in stage, and I aim to be that...seasoned :)

TA-S: Who are your favorite actors and models? Why?

Natasha: Actors: Christopher Walken; Michael Rosembaum - he is crazy Model: Tyra - did not like her for a long time until she stepped out on her own and showed everyone her real mind power.

TA-S: Have you done many photo shoots?

Natasha: Some...If you consider test shoots also. Five this year since I started. All a notch higher than the one before.

TA-S: Do you have a agent or manager?

Natasha: Yes, I work with two agencies...Non-Exclusive

TA-S: Are you planning on moving back to New York or Hollywood at some point?

Natasha: If that is where my career takes me. But I like Georgia.

Natasha: I would like to be happily married, with a degree in Journalism or something of the sort, along with my advanced career as an actor/model. They all tie in to each other.


There's nothing to distinguish Chopped And Screwed music in the birth place of South Houston, Texas from any other states that are trying to build music our this style. It’s a different sound and not everyone can do it, but with that said “Dela Candela Miami’s Own Chopped And Screwed Hip Hop Artist”, as done just that.

Dela Candela, Born Carlos Alberto Alvarez, the twenty-three years old is an undeniably natural talent with a demeanor, flow and versatility way beyond his years. His music is a fusion of southern gangsta rap and Chopped And Screwed, a technique of music created by Texas’ DJ Screw. Dela discovered hip-hop in the hallway of his high school, South Miami High, at age 13. The gritty and raw new sound piqued his interest and from then on, he never stopped writing and making words rhyme.
As the success of Mike Jones, Paul Wall and Slim Thug's ubiquitous single, "Still Tippin'," has brought the spotlight to Houston, the city's indigenous sound has begun to creep out of the South west shadows into Miami’s back yard. Dela Candela of Strictly Business Records has started to break down barriers across Florida with his style of music and differences in his appearance.

The highly anticipated release of Dela Candela Solo Mixtape produced by Los aka 1st Class and hosted by Dj Khaled of 99 Jamz and Cameos from other Celebrities is soon to be distributed on the mixtape circuits, broadcasting his style of rapping to his South Florida’s neighborhood. "When you say, Dela Candela expect something off the wall with screwed music, involved.

This Mixtape will be something to stop, and listen to even though Dela Candela is so controversial with his music, the streets will take notice of is style.

Still, no matter how big the sound of Dela Candela Debut Mixtape gets and how far across the globe it reaches, Dela Candela has a unique style in doing Screwed And Chopped music…
Music with meaning and substance is something special to cherish. Its’ artists like Dela Candela that comes along and separates himself from the rest that are always reaching for the brass ring.

Human Musician

From a distance, my ears heard a harmony that allowed for a mental moment of sensation. Like a dog follows a scent on a K-9 investigation, I followed the sound.To my surprise, beneath the shade of a building there played music. He was the essence of light honey brown perfectly touched by the sun with eyes to match. There he stood making music with the body parts given to him by God. He mixed in harmonies with his voice and pats on his legs from hand-to-hand to his chest. Back and forth, up and down, rhythm just riding on his course. While bass exhaled from the stomp of his feet. In the midst of my eyes, I experienced the passion in coordination and the taste of heart and soul and smoothness of a human musician.
