Never Stop The Fight: 80 Empire & Swifty McVay of D12 team up for new video

Adrian and Lucas Rezza of the Canadian-based 80 Empire recently teamed up with the legendary Swifty McVay of Detroit’s D12 for a great new collaborative release.

Yesterday, the 11-track album, also titled 80 Empire, received support with the premiere of dope new visual aid.

Along with Canadian production powering the album, the accompanying video for “Never Stop The Fight” was also co-created by Canadian talent with seasoned MontrĂ©al director Fatty Soprano taking the helm along with Detroit’s Sam Logan Khaleghi and Garrett Hoffman.

“Never Stop The Fight” is soulfully driven by vintage horns and a 70 esque bass line, layered with an anthemic chorus by 80 Empire. On the track, Swifty illustrates his lyrical prowess, solidifying himself as one of the illest lyricists in the game. Swifty takes the listener down memory lane, painting a very vivid picture of his fight to the top from his humble beginnings in the Detroit rap game to selling, over four million records with Eminem and D12. Success and the hustle doesn’t stop there, as the trio vigorously declare that they will keep fighting till the good lord calls their names.

“Man we The Avengers, X-Men, Reservoir Dogs all mixed in one lol đŸ”¥đŸ”¥đŸ”¥” Swifty recently expressed of the bond with 80 Empire. “Yes, the chemistry is definitely there bro, and I can’t wait to see the impact this music is gonna have on the listeners.”

The Rezza Bros. also had nothing but good things to say about the Detroit legend and their collaborative album. We spoke with them about it back in June:

“We met him two years ago through Obie Trice who we’re friends with and have done records with. We then jumped on stage with them when they performed in St. Catharines at The Warehouse. We then did a song collectively called ‘Phoney’ on the Devil’s Night: Dawn of the Nain Rouge soundtrack.”

Check out the new video below and be sure to check out 80 Empire which is available on various digital streaming platforms including Spotify.
