The Benchwarmers Clique's 8-Bit Hip-Hop of "Robocop"
Judging from the amount of blunt smoke present and that they appear to have broken into a Home Depot to film this video, I would guess that the Benchwarmers Clique want nothing to do with an indestructible cop who never eats or sleeps. Nor do the feel good sounds of banging, 8-bit boom bap indicate that they had any intention of reviving the once popular jerky and robotic club dance. Instead MCs Travisty and Joka Wild aim to invoke a nostalgia for the classics with a cleverly hooked sampling of the early '90s Robocop 2 Nintendo game (courtesy of producer Jewbei) (as opposed to Kanye West's glossy song of the same name).
Also joining in the fun is a familiar cast of SoFla rap personalities (Saheed, Bonus, Dirty Dem, etc.), a bootleg Jay and Silent Bob and what looks like a horned mexican wrestler in a nice suit. True to theme there's even a cameo by Robocop himself, donning some ill-fitting mechanical body armor!
