Toronto production duo Adrian Rezza and Lucas Rezza, a/ka/ 80 Empire, just dropped the Fatty Soprano-directed music video for “1982”, a sinister tale of triumph through metaphors. The track references Italy’s World Cup win with the message that despite being underdogs, Italy changed its trajectory.
The new short film / music video also stars actor Raoul Max Trujillo, known for his work in Apocalypto, Mayans MC , and the upcoming DC Studios Blue Beetle movie.
The song itself will first be dropping as an NFT with Gala Music before arriving on streaming with SoulSpazm.
