It was a glorious day when the music video for “Otis,” the first single from super-collaboration “Watch the Throne” was released. Yet in a music video starring hip-hop’s biggest giants Jay-Z and Kanye West and directed by indie-darling Spike Jonze… you wouldn’t expect a car to steal the show, but the deconstructed Maybach stole our hearts.
The $350,000 vehicle was part Burning Man part bling… a perfect visual for the broken-down American dream aesthetic of the video. According to GalleristNY the car can now be yours, if you are willing to, as Jay says, be spendin’ cheese. The wheels will sell at Phillips du Pury auction house on March 8, with proceeds going to Save the Children. It is expected to sell at around $100,000.
MTV ranked the hottest MCs in the rap game for 2011. Past Hot MC’s such Eminem, T.I., Fabolous, Nas, Gucci Mane or Young Jeezy didn’t even crack the top 10. Wow! Looks like Maybach Music Group, The Throne & YMCMB is running the cable music television stations these days. Checkout the full list below:
