Jay-Z To Sell Occupy Wall St. Inspired Shirts, Has No Plans To Share Profits
(UPDATED) Jay-Z's Rocawear clothing line is producing a line of Occupy Wall Street inspired clothing, but has no plans to share ANY OF the profits, according to a spokesperson. The twittersphere lit up recently with a photo (click on image to enlarge) of Jay-Z backstage with Russell Simmons and wearing a modified "Occupy Wall Street" shirt with the "W" crossed out and and adding an "S" to make it read "Occupy All Streets".
But the billionaire hip hop entrepreneur has no plans to share the wealth. "The 'Occupy All Streets' T shirt was created in support of the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement," a spokesperson told Business Insider. "Rocawear strongly encourages all forms of constructive expression, whether it be artistic, political or social. 'Occupy All Streets' is our way of reminding people that there is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street. At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement."
