'Otis' Video Premiere: Kanye West and Jay-Z Show Off Their Bromance
Kanye West and Jay-Z have style unlike any other, and they proudly show if off in a music video for their joint single "Otis". Bringing a swanky black Maybach to the rooftop, they open the Spike Jonze-directed clip by doctoring the car to meet their standard and satisfaction, a monstrous custom-made.
It's not all about work though. Once the mega rap duo are done stripping the doors and roof from the vehicle, they jump into it and take the ladies for a quick drive around the lot. When the women are not around, they just chill out and flaunt their bromance in front of a huge Star-Spangled Banner. They even get a visit from Aziz Ansari.
"Otis" is taken from Kanye and Jigga's first joint album "Watch the Throne" which was released in the United States on August 8. It samples Otis Redding's classic "try a Little Tenderness", and the late singer is credited as a featured guest in the rap song.
Otis' daughter Karla Redding-Andrews once said, "The estate was offered the option to have 'Otis' receive a 'featuring Otis Redding' credit, and agreed." She additionally stated, "To have two current, legendary artists use the legendary music of Otis Redding-we were quite honored."
