Bronx rap trio The Legion take us back to “1980 Something” in their new video that depicts the good, the bad, and the ugly from that decade including Ronald Reagan’s flawed drug war and larger-than-life parties.
To capture the vibe of New York City (and the country at large) in the ‘80s, the Double Dog Films crew did a stellar job of blending footage from that era with shots of The Legion posted up in the BX. As Molecules, DiceMan, and Chucky Smash pass the mic back and forth throughout the track, you see shots of Reagan, drug busts, live performances, wild outfits, and so much more that encapsulated that time period.
What’s more, you get to witness the energy and passion of the three emcees of The Legion. They can’t help but grin as they spit their bars at the camera and seamlessly move from one member’s raps to the next. The “1980 Something” video is a highly engaging and entertaining glimpse of what The Legion has in store on their new album, Three The Bronx Way. While you wait for that release, be sure to keep their debut LP, Theme + Echo = Krill, in rotation—an album that remains as dope today as it was back in ‘94.
Check out the visuals for “1980 Something,” and head over to your preferred retailer to pre-order Three The Bronx Way, via download/stream and vinyl. The 11 track LP which includes guest features from Dres (of Black Sheep), Sadat X, Beneficence and more, is due out Feb 01 through Legion Records, distributed by Fat Beats.
