80 Empire Unleashes New Visual For “Business”

Published

on

By

“BUSINESS,” by the multitalented, Italian/Canadian, brother duo, 80 Empire, is more than a music video; it’s a short film set in the iconic neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York. Jennifer Esposito, actress and director, echoed this sentiment after watching the piece of cinematic cool: 

” It’s so authentic NY!!!!! Love it. Really great!!! ” 

“Dope flow .. East Coast vibes with the Timbs on the beach. Made men shit! “

said Eminem’s Shady Records alum, Kxng Crooked of the visuals and song.
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. Its like a code amongst brothers and an understanding of mutual respect within that brotherhood, Adrian proudly declares.  “Business” features actor Robert Funaro and actress Cristina Donadio of Napoli Italy. Both stars played major roles on arguably the most quintessential Mafia tv series in the history of television, The Sopranos and Gomorrah.
“It’s pretty historical for us to have both of these insanely, talented actors from two of the Biggest mob shows in our production, here at Gladiator Records, actually surreal!” acknowledges brother Lucas. Lucas and Adrian, aka 80 Empire, came down to New York from their headquarters in Niagara on the lake, also known as Nappa Valley of the North. It is surrounded by vineyards and historic Fort George, nestled on the Niagara river just minutes away from Niagara Falls. The brothers really wanted to go back to New York, the city they love, and specifically Brooklyn to fully capture the entire messaging behind the latest single. 80 Empire was on a mission just like Jake and Elwood Blues.
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!

Published

By

Bronx singer-songwriter Capella Grey returns with “OT,” a breezily stylish new single laced with West Coast funk and guest vocals from the one and only Ty Dolla $ign. “OT” (slang for “out of town”) evokes positive vibes and the carefree lifestyle of an eligible bachelor — a fitting release for the beginning of summer. Accompanied by a luxurious, sun-drenched new video set in Cali, “OT” evokes positive vibes and the carefree lifestyle of an eligible bachelor — a fitting release for the beginning of summer. Watch HERE.

Leading things off is Capella, who slides into the bouncy bass as he lets loose a credo for all the ballers without borders: “Why would I take a shorty OT? / There’s already shorties OT / Why would I bring sand to the beach / When they’re all on me and they’re all OD?” For his part, Ty opens with a quippy rhetorical question about why he’d ever bring a baddie to Tulum. After all, they all go to Tulum. Playful and effortlessly stylish, “OT” emits energy and sunshine. 

OT” only continues a lengthy winning streak for Capella, who’s become one of New York’s fastest-rising stars over the last year. Pairing a flexible voice with an equally malleable style, the Capitol Music Group signee has captivated fans with a nostalgic, shape-shifting mix of R&B, dancehall, and soul. Last year, his breakout single, “Gyalis,” peaked at No. 38 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and, to date, the track has earned over 55 million Spotify streams. Combining sensuous vocals with a feature from Nija, he continued building momentum with “Confujawn,” a thoughtful rumination on a struggling relationship. With “OT” at his back and summer just ahead, Capella is all set to make the rest of 2022 his biggest year yet.
