‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ Pulled Off Paramount’s Schedule, But Watch The Video For Eddie Murphy’s Chart Topping Reggae Jam

'Beverly Hills Cop 4' Pulled Off Paramount's Schedule, But Watch The Video For Eddie Murphy's Chart Topping Reggae Jam

In a move that has probably surprised no one who has watched the slow moving, years-upon-years worth of development of “Beverly Hills Cop 4,” the movie, which had been scheduled to hit theaters on March 25, 2016, has been pulled off Paramount‘s calendar, according to The Wrap. Eddie Murphy told Rolling Stone in January that, “They[‘re] still trying to get that script right,” which has also been the case forever, so again, not much of a shock, particularly combined with the fact no one has really heard any real news about the movie. But what may surprise you is that Murphy is a best selling reggae artist now.

Huh. The song is about as generic as reggae can get, and the video, unearthed by Uproxx, is dreadful (seriously, what is with those transitions and wipes?), but the earnestness is palpable. Check out it below. We’d advise not quit his day job of not making “Beverly Hills Cop 4.”
