I throw these Maybach keys

from Kanye West (Ft. Frank Ocean) – New Slaves Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In an interview with the New York Times, Kanye explained his intention with this line. In response to certain corporations literally trying to control him, he is asserting that he is not for sale; he is not a corporate puppet just trying to get rich, he wants full creative control for its own sake:

“I would rather sit in a factory, creating, designing, setting trends, than sit in a Maybach.”

Ye has already said that having a hot car doesn’t mean shit if you have to stoop low to get it: “Even if you in a Benz, you still a nigga in a coupe.”

But Kanye is also one of the hottest artists in the game, so it does make sense for him to have some keys to a Maybach, like the 2004 Maybach 57 he wrecked with Jay-Z.

Fun Fact!
‘Ye and Jay donated the car to a charity auction
