Philanthropy: Kanye + Jay-Z auction 'Otis' video car

The $350,000 write-off!

Jay-Z and Kanye West are set to auction off the bespoke engineered Maybach which was made specifically for the 'Otis' video for charitable causes. The 350,000USD car is a magnificent result of the two mad scientists cutting-and-shutting a brand new Maybach just for the fun of it! The two fellas which call themselves 'The Throne' revel in keeping themselves at the forefront of the public eye and this will do them just that for all the right reasons. With album Watch The Throne being phenomenally successful worldwide, the two have recently announced their UK and Ireland tour which has sold out already! Anyway check out said video...

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.”

The album Watch the Throne is out worldwide now.
Watch the Throne tickets can still be purchased from viagogo if you're desperate!
