Skip to comments.Kanye West and Jay-Z Auctioning Off Mutilated $373,000 Maybach for Charity

In "Otis," the first video from the Kanye West and Jay-Z (a.k.a the Throne) joint album Watch the Throne, the two hip-hop moguls oversee some unconventional body work to what appears to be a brand-new Maybach: The German luxury car -- base sticker price approximately $373,000 for the cheapest model -- gets sliced and diced with a blowtorch and power saw. In the first 30 seconds of the clip, the automobile loses its roof and doors and gets remixed into an open-air Jeep-style vehicle perfect for joyriding around a parking lot with a quartet of young ladies in the back seat while fireworks blast off, which is exactly what Jay and Kanye proceed to do in the Spike Jonze-directed video.

Having seen a Maybach in person a number of times, they are work of art....
I am horrifed by what they did, the girls riding in what is now a death trap, and all it's symbolism...
Dopes teaching dopes how to pizz their money away...
Their new song is being criticized because the song’s focus is how much money these two D-bags have.
The lack of Neanderthal DNA causes them to behave this way around nice things they could never build on their own.
"Sorta reminds me of the job obama has done to America."
By a poster called "AmericanRebel". They could be a FReeper!
OH my.... I didn't see that comment, some were butes, but that one takes the cake...
The sight seemed almost sacrilegious.
Destroying that which is beyond their ability to create.
"Cast not thy pearls before swine."
Otis would be mortified to hear that jive-azz jagging his work...
I liked Kanye better when he singing about gay fish.
Unbelieveable voice and licks. Man these guys have no talent compared to the likes of Otis, Marvin, Sam Cooke and Wilson Pickett.
Ughh..I guess you can take the thug out of the Ghetto(and give them hundreds of Millions of dollars).....but you can’t take the Ghetto out of the Thug
It’s worse than when Kenny Gorelick did a posthumous duet of “What A Wonderful World” with Satchmo.
I’m pretty sure the cheapest new model Maybach comes in at OVER $400K.
I love Sam Cooke! Check out “A Change Is Gonna Come” which was shamelessly ripped of by then candidate Baraq Downgrayedd.
Kanye hates Maybachs
I’m with you dude. Sam Cooke,The Platters, The Drifters, Marvin Gay, The Shirelles, The Dixie Cups etc. these guys were awesome and the crap they put out now as R&B or jazz or what ever just plain sucks. I don’t know how people listen to it.
Didn’t they play that in Dr. Strangelove? LOL
The motor and transmission are probably ok , I bid $5,000.
Isn’t it amazing that there are always white trash groupies around these types of dipsticks?
The song sux to top it off!
It is sacrilege to have them using the music of real musicians, like Otis, Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and Booker T. They are not worthy to shine those guys’ shoes.
