'Circle of Life' is the first set of visuals taken from LiKWUiD + 2 Hungry Bros 'Likwuidity: In Depth' album, as she delivers thought provoking social critique and personal content of familial matters over an otherworldly beat by the 2 Hungry Bros. 'Circle of Life' is ride through some tuff times but with a fun bounce that you can bump in your rental. The video is directed by the supremely talented Noisemaker Media, that makes light of biological and adopted family (aka Fam).

The soulful, horn and synth-heavy track feels like J57 on a powerful but lazy day where he readily triumphs over his production competition. Lyrically, it's a verbal essay on G.Huff's prowess as a consistent MC - sturdy but never overdone, braggadocious but never disrespectful.

The BlockStarz.Tv Network, www.blockstarz.tv, has debuted the pilot episode of its original comedy web series, "THIS IS DANTE", which follows the misadventures of a young actor from the Bronx as he attempts to break into the music business.
"'THIS IS DANTE' is new, it's different, and it's entertaining," says the show's star and namesake Dante Hillmedo (born Andrew Hillmedo Jr.), who's appeared in a handful of Hollywood movies, most notably 2008's BABY MAMA starring Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Greg Kinnear. "I believe viewers will laugh, learn, and most of all enjoy the ride as they follow the highs and lows of my journey through the entertainment industry."
The 25-year-old Hillmedo says the series will detail his career false starts, including an ill-fated collaboration with distant cousin Slick Rick, and missed opportunities, like a nervous audition that lost him a role in the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious, through a mix of behind-the-scenes footage and funny reenactments.
The comedy/reality-based web series, which was created by Hillmedo's film/television company Team Elite Productions, premiered as part of The BlockStarz.Tv Network's sneak peek at its Fall 2013 prime-time lineup and will air Wednesday nights at 9 PM EST with rebroadcasts on Mondays.
