The wrecked Maybach from Jay Z and Kanye West Otis music video will soon be auctioned off to benefit children in need.
You see, there’s some method to their madness. The way they destroyed the $350,000 luxury car for fun, you’d think these two are the prime examples of mindless rappers burning money like it’s nobody’s business. But Jay and West are more sophisticated than that. You just need to listen to the lyrics in Otis to realize that:
The car is expected to fetch $100,000 in auction to benefit The Children Foundations and their East Africa efforts. “Jay-Z and Kanye West are towering figures in contemporary culture,” the auction house said in a statement. “They have greatly contributed to the artificial barriers between art, music, fashion, and cinema to come down. Their video for Otis became an instant classic. The Maybach they have transformed for it has the starring role.”
