80 Empire is back with their latest single “Go Gettaz,” released via Gladiator Records. This Canadian production duo, consisting of brothers Adrian Rezza and Lucas Rezza, are known for their passion and love of hip-hop/rap, soul funk, and house music. They have always been underdogs, but with determination and perseverance, they have managed to penetrate the music industry.
The number “80” in their moniker is not just a nod to the 80s revival in music. It represents “A-D,” which stands for Analog/Digital. This clever play on words perfectly describes the brothers’ personalities and influences. Adrian is emotional and impulsive, preferring antiques and things with age and patina, while Lucas is ordered and methodical, with a love for Star Wars and all things technological. This unique combination is reflected in their music, which blends different genres and eras seamlessly.
With a strong focus on creating captivating and intricate beats, 80 Empire has collaborated with notable artists such as Kxng Crooked, Conway the Machine, Benny the Butcher, Fred the Godson, Kurupt, Layzie Bone, MC Eiht, and many more.
In 2023, 80 Empire released the music video for “1982,” directed by Fatty Soprano. The video tells a sinister tale of triumph through metaphors, referencing Italy’s World Cup win and sending a message that despite being underdogs, one can change their trajectory.
As 80 Empire aims for musical supremacy, their passion and dedication to their craft are palpable. They have established themselves as talented producers and artists, always pushing the boundaries and challenging the norms of music production. With each release, they continue to impress and captivate audiences with their innovative sound and storytelling abilities.
