One of the things that makes this music video incredibly honest and authentic is 80 Empire’s relationship with Robert Funaro whom the boys affectionately call ” Bobby 300. “You will often see the 3 gentlemen holding up 3 fingers throughout the music video, ” 300 is something Bobby came up with and it just stuck.

The Brothers couldn’t fulfill their destiny without the assistance of influencer and PR friend, Monica German-Prestia known on line as Stefani Style and long time friend and collaborator, director and screenwriter Fatty Soprano.
Monica, a native of Bensonhurst Brooklyn, understood the assignment, and along with the talented eye of Director, Fatty Soprano, connecting the dots bringing in other Brooklynites. Together, they created a truly exceptional piece of visual art, to accompany an already Cool song. The single was featured on Apple Music’s curated playlist: Bars,alongside the likes of J Cole, Pusha T, and Kendrick Lamar. The song was released on the duo’s indie label Gladiator Records and distributed by SoulSpazm earlier in May of 2022.
80 Empire display their vast musical abilities by starting the video with their version of Gaetano Donizetti’s Furtiva Lagrima. Adrian sang the operatic piece, while brother Lucas played his arrangement on piano. The Empire proud of their Italian heritage, and lovers of Opera, thanks to their parents, wanted to share their love of their culture by setting the atmosphere in the first scene of the video. Be sure to check out the visual for “Business” and feel free to share and repost!
