[photogallerylink id=94666]

Watch The Throne, the hip-hop lovechild of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm], might be all about respecting and revering the rap game, but most of all, we’ve got to give props to Hova and ‘Ye for being two of the most successful cats in the music industry. Oh, and for being able to have some many Mercedes Benz’ that they put all their Porsche driving friends to shame (see: [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Janis Joplin[/lastfm] reference).

Just a decade ago, right when Jay-Z invited West to collab for the first time on Blueprint 2, ‘Ye was literally buying his first other-other Benz. Awwww, memories.

 

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In this vid from 2002, the ‘Ye gets  a brand new $100,000 Mercedes-Benz G550 SUV to replace his old ML430.

Beep, beep. Who’s got the keys to the…Benz?

Kanye, always keeping it classy. Except when he walks into Nobu with no shoes on.
