Rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z desecrate Maybach in new 'Otis' music [video]

Rappers destroy a Maybach just for the hell of it in a video for the song Otis

Rappers like flashy, expensive cars and sometimes they even enjoy showing those pricey items off in an neverending effort to prove their wealth. But for tier 1 rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z, that kind of poseur activity is a bit contrived.

So, in an effort to be shocking and stay controversial Kanye and Jay-Z take a torch and sawzall wielding team of body men to this $300,000 Maybach for their latest music video "Otis", a tribute to Otis Redding.

The result is this flame spewing abomination suited for a post-apocalyptic action film such as Mad Max. Even better, try to picture a high society debutante turned into a heroine addict.

On second thought, this car is actually pretty cool!

I could't possibly care less about what they did to the Maybach. What it does sound like to me is that most of you are angry/upset because #1.You will never know what it's like to have money and do with it as you please, at any given time, without worrying about cost. #2.You're even angrier that it was done by two "ghetto" black guys, who you consider beneath you, and you, with your low self esteem, hate that. It burns you up. I don't have to agree with what they did, but, I wont be losing any sleep over what the next man is doing, when it does not affect me in any way. Also keep in mind their line of work. These are the kind of things that they all do (trying to out flash each other) With that in mind, I understand the point. (Every rapper says he's the richest, and blah blah blah, but, these two rappers just destroyed what other rappers use as a trophy.

Please stop hating! Nobody has sh!t to say when they blow up 10 Aston Martins for a Bond Movie, or wreck a dozen Audi A8L W12's in Transporter, or all those cars including prototypes in the Transformers movies. At least they are selling the car and donating proceeds to charity. They have the money, earned it fair and square, so let them spend it the way they want to. Some of you blow your rent money on gambling, whores, and drugs. You dont see JayZ or Kanye in your house calling you stupid, or monkey. Just STFU and let them be. If they ever go broke in the future, Im sure this video will be around to haunt them.

Have to agree with you slim. Really, there's enough cars destroyed for movies, publicity stunts, or just plain old poor driving, not to mention MANY ways people blow their money badly. This is no different.

When you look at the plates you can see a plate with an M which stands for Munich: So maybe BMW paid the old maybach and were glad to see it killed by two idiots.

As a young guy who likes quite a bit of hip hop, I still have to say this is blatantly stupid and is the kind of thing that makes so many people hate America. Kanye West is renowned for being a class idiot but this is a bit surprising from Jay Z. Btw, here's a photo of Kanye 'keeping it real' :http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4uUYzp6UQS8/ThOBEuHY-eI/AAAAAAAAAQk/wqlcUQi1zn0/s1600/Kanye_Blouse.jpg

HA! I specifically came to this site to see if there was gonna be any mention of the Maybach in the Otis video. Along with the rappers suck, ghetto monkey BS talk the was gonna ensue. Sure it hurt watching them cut up a perfectly good Maybach. But if you watch closely you'll notice that those are 2 totally different Maybachs. The one in the beginning shot is brand new with the new style grille while the one they cut up is a older one. Plus the car is gonna be auctioned off and the proceeds are going to help the people affected by the east African drought. So hush.

if they sold a perfectly normal maybach it would have been much more money than a gutted maybach.

The headline should read: Look what happens when you give to much money to degenerates. I hope the class envy folks take note that this is meant to be an in your face statement to the lower and middle class.

Im an avid music fan (all types) so I watched the video premiere... The hairs stood up on my neck during the intro when they walked so casually toward the bach with torches and sawz in hand. An abomination... The glass roof by itself was worth $10K...

Look at these fakers, first they show a current Maybach (facelifted version), later it's an older one...so all in all, they didn't have the nuts or the money to destroy a new maybach lol

Kanye is a joke and everybody knows it, he's a gayfish, rap videos are lame, but at the end of they day they can probably sell the Bach for more than they paid after it was in this video.

Tsk tsk... This sorta stuff made me stop listening to rap ages ago. Am in Africa and it saddens me to watch such stupid extravagance when people are dying of hunger elsewhere.

It saddens me that two men who came from poverty have now reached the point that they can destroy a Luxury car for entertainment, and people think that's cool. They didn't do it for Otis Redding... nothing that they said in that song did anything to honor his name, in fact they kicked dirt on it! Not all people who rap are like them, I want everyone to know that, and the fact that they're are standing in front of an American Flag doing it! Then wonder why other countries hate Americans. This video is TRASH! Please WCF next time you have a video with rappers in it doing this BS... Don't even post it, cause we don't wanna see this crap.

So you've never liked a movie that had exotic or luxury cars blown up or intentionally crashed? Mission Impossible and various James Bond movies come to mind. That's considered entertainment. Please explain what makes this different.

Btw, Kanye grew up middle class. But you're not totally wrong, since Jay-Z grew up in the projects.

@ Ager, duly noted. @ DrPlacebo there is not too many movies with exotic cars that I don't like. Entertainment is entertainment. There is no difference when you get down to it, one you have a plot, protagonist, antagonist, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Act, conflict, climax and then you have music videos which can have the same or just have some cool shots, which this video had. It just bothers me because it seems as though they are throwing the fact that they have money in everyone's face. People buy their albums, go to their concerts and they brag about how rich they are. I hope that makes it clear.
