Kanye West ‘RoboCop’ Video Snippet Leaks Starring Amber Rose

Kanye West and Amber Rose

Just in time for Flashback Friday, a snippet of Kanye West’s “RoboCop” video has hit the net. The stop-motion clip, directed by Hype Williams, was filmed circa 2008-2009 for Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak album, and stars ‘Ye’s then-girlfriend Amber Rose as his voluptuous robotic lover.

Wearing a plastic bodysuit, she hypnotizes a tuxedo-clad ‘Ye with her lady lumps against a pink backdrop.

The visuals were inspired by his love for video games. “I think that’s the holy grail, if you can make your video look as good as a video game, and not be computer generated, and just have that type of intensity coming off the screen,” Kanye said during an on-set interview.

The “RoboCop” video was reportedly scrapped after the couple broke up.

Kanye West Brings North West to the Studio

Kanye and North West

Stuntin’ like her daddy. North West has been spending time with her father while he records his next album.

Kim Kardashian shared an adorable photo of her husband in the studio with their 14-month-old baby with the caption “#BringYourDaughterToWorkDay.” The proud papa is all smiles as little Nori sits on his lap.

Kanye was recently in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, recording the follow-up to Yeezus. According to E! News, North spent much of the family’s vacation in the studio. “She loves music and is obsessed with hearing it in the studio,” says the source.

In his GQ cover story, Kanye announced that his new single “All Day” will drop soon, with an album to follow in the fall.

Today marks the 73rd day of Kim and Kanye’s marriage, which TMZ points out is a day longer than Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries.

“Family is super cool,” ‘Ye told GQ. “Going home to one girl every night is super cool. Just going home and getting on the floor and playing with your child is super cool. Not wearing a red leather jacket, and just looking like a dad and shit, is like super cool.”

“Happy Birthday To My Brother and Friend King Tisci @riccardotisci17!! So Excited 2 Celebrate This Night With You!” tweeted CiCi.

Bieber cozied up to Kendall Jenner and even put the moves on her mother. “@kendalljenner @kyliejenner who’s your daddy,” he joked while posing with his arms around Kris Jenner.

With a giant disco ball towering over his head, Kanye entertained the fashionable crowd with hits including “Black Skinhead,” “All of the Lights,” and “Ni**as in Paris,” and praised the designer.

“Me and Virgil and Don would see your work and think, ‘This is the dude that’s in Paris that’s making shit that the ‘hood can relate to,’” ‘Ye told Tisci.

Supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss serenaded the birthday boy with “Happy Birthday” as he was presented with a four-tier white cake.

Kanye West was always ahead of his time, and we’ve got the video to prove it. Before he was selling out arenas across the globe and designing sneakers for Nike and adidas, the then-unknown Chicago rapper, who was only 19 at the time, freestyled at the opening of Fat Beats 6th Avenue store in August 1996.

DJ Eclipse, the former manager of Fat Beats’ New York store, shared the 18-year-old footage, which shows a skinny Kanye sporting an oversized Polo and spitting some aggressive bars.

“My style is too cold / Always forever like Luther / But it ain’t original because I stole it from the future,” raps the future 21-time Grammy winner.
