Did you see the text at the end?

The car is going to be auctioned and all proceeds will go towards the East African draught relief effort.

Khoj, As Car enthusiasts, it is painful to see an engineering marvel such as a Maybach being chopped into two.

Don't really care about the vehicle, I've been waiting for this album to come out. Got pretty saturated with all the hop that's doin the rounds at the moment. Songs pretty alright, JayZ's done way better stuff in his better days

They've not only butchered the poor car, they've butchered music as we know it. What has happened to music? Where are bands like Simon & Garfunkel, Pink Floyd and Dire Straits? Why do we have rubbish like this on our radios these days?

*No offense meant to those who appreciate this stuff.

There are people who wouldn't appreciate your choice of music with the same amount of dislike you have shown.

To other who like Hip-Hop, it sounds allright.

Besides, Hip-Hop is all about bling, flaunting your money and what you can do with it and frankly, thats what is missing in the videos of the bands you have mentioned.

Indeed.

But it's a pity if they dislike such music. And I would gladly trade all that bling and 'flaunting-of-money' and expensive props like Bentleys and Maybachs for some actual soulful classy music produced by individuals with a God-given talent of being able to play instruments.

But before we get into a musical debate, I'd like to stop here and say that we're going off-topic. This is about the car. And it's sad to see it being turned into what looks like the Mercedes that was driven by Top Gear through central Africa.

If you think Hip-Hop is made by people with less talent than some of the grunge rock/rock bands you've mentioned, you should seriously stop and examine yourself.

Regarding the Maybach, its sad to see it in that shape.

There is something very intrigueing about these rappers. They wear tattered jeans/torn shirts/dishevelled looks and use profanity and F word every second sentence. But the same guys turn up for Music Video Awards in designer suits and speak impeccable, proper, formal, English like "da white man". How very interesting!

And the Maybach? They make way too much money to bother about price of a Maybach. Their videos are all about bling bling. Cars with lot of chrome, breast and butt cleavage close shots and choicest of words, these are generally the ingredients of their music videos. Some like it. Others don't.

You have misinterpreted my statement, my good man.

I haven't questioned the talent of those who produce hip-hop music. I was simply stating my preference which happens to be 'soulful music' produced by individuals with a God-given talent of being able to play instruments like the guitar or the drums or even the cello. That is what defines music, IMO. Not some bass-beats and a distinct tune in a loop accompanied by profanity and references to women who are inevitably shown in bad light.

Just my two cents.

Point noted.

I hope you realize the fact that profanity is not just limited to Hip-Hop in general.

Certainly not. Profanity is something I've seen being used across all genres of music. But more often in Hip-Hop/Rap than others.

Getting back to the car. What exactly is the reason as to why it was shredded and sliced to look like that? I just can't seem to understand why a perfectly good car was cruelly destroyed.

But then again, in a perfect World, animals wouldn't be killed for their fur and laptops would cease to crash.
