*The Maybach luxury vehicle that Kanye West and Jay Z had customized for their new “Otis” video will be auctioned off to aid East African drought relief efforts.
In the clip, the two rappers chop up the car, turning it into a vehicle with an open top and sides that they use to take a group of girls around on a joy ride. [Watch below.]
The clip closes with the message, “The vehicle used in this visual will be offered up for auction. Proceeds will be donated towards The East African Drought Disaster.”
Meanwhile, Jay Z is also raising money for cancer research by donating a portion of proceeds from his merchandise sales to charity.
Jigga is encouraging his fans to buy a special edition white T-shirt, emblazoned with lyrics from his remix of Kanye West’s single “Power,” to benefit the City of Hope organization. The shirt is being sold on FanFire.com and retails at $21.95, with at least 50 percent of all profits going to the charity.
