Rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z take a perfectly fine Maybach sedan and then proceed to tear it apart in their latest film clip for the song Otis, before transforming what’s left of the wreckage into a flame-spitting roadster.

Why they do it isn’t really explained in the clip, though it wouldn’t be the first time rap stars attempted to flaunt their wealth by showing very little regard to things of value. You may recall fellow rapper Dr. Dre destroyed a Ferrari 360 Modena in the film clip for I Need A Doctor.

Perhaps Jay-Z was a little upset that Birdman got to buy the $8 million Maybach Exelero Coupe he used in one of his previous clips.

One thing’s for certain, Jay-Z loves showing off cars in his film clips, with previous appearances featuring a Ferrari F430 and Pagani Zonda, a Jaguar XJ, and an Aston Martin Vanquish.
