Music Video Pick | “Otis” by Kanye West and Jay-Z

The collaboration of Jay-Z and Kanye West has been long-anticipated, and “Otis” is the first single off of their joint album Watch the Throne. The song itself lacks a chorus, and although some of the rhymes are clever, the lyrics aren’t as colorful as one is used to hearing from these two rappers. This music video is nearly as lackluster as the song itself, until you realize that Kanye and Jay-Z have just destroyed a Maybach for their own pleasure. And why not have some models in the backseat? “Otis” gets its charm from the smiles and the giggles that Jay-Z and Kanye share (and I did just describe Kanye as “giggling”). The video is a good reflection of the song: it’s just these two fabulously wealthy rappers who are just messing around and having a good time with their¬†ridiculously¬†hot models. Check it out after the jump on this week’s MVP.
