    Jay-Z and Kanye West brutalize a Maybach luxury vehicle in their recently released video for "Otis" from their sure-to-debut-in-the-top-slot Watch the Throne record. These fine gentlemen are auctioning off the ride in for charity. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the East African drought relief efforts.

    The Maybach is chopped up and fashioned into a roadster in the video. It's almost blasphemous, when you consider the price tag of this type of vehic. But Jay-Z and Kanye West? They rule the world and can fuck with a Maybach at will. They each probably have one in their respective garages.

    The vid ends with the message about the donation. It reads as follows: "The vehicle used in this visual will be offered up for auction. Proceeds will be donated towards The East African Drought Disaster."

    What would you do with this Maybach if you won the auction?
