Kanye West and Jay-Z Auctioning Off Maybach From “Otis” Video For Charity

(AllHipHop News) As of this past weekend, fans, passer-bys, and anyone interested in purchasing a piece of Hip-Hop history can view the infamous Maybach used in Jay-Z and Kanye West’s music video for “Otis” off of their Platinum-certified album Watch the Throne.

The “customized” 2004 Maybach 57, which is currently up for auction and estimated at a value between $100,000 and $150,000, is residing at 450 Park Avenue in New York City until Wednesday, March 7. The auction will take place on the following evening of March 8.

Auction host and chairman of Phillips de Pury & Company, Simon de Pury said, “Jay-Z and Kanye West are towering figures in contemporary culture. 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.”

A good portion of  proceeds from the auction will go to Save the Children which is “the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need around the world.Save the Children has helped 2.5 million children and families in the Horn of Africa through feeding, water trucking, healthcare and education.”

Those interested in seeing the car can stop by the Maybach’s current residence from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday thru Saturday and from noon until 6 p.m. on Sunday.
