Five Signs Kanye West Could Hold Up at Occupy Wall Street

A number of hip-hop artists have shown their support for Occupy Wall Street, including Talib Kweli and Lupe Fiasco. But the most surprising backing came from the Louis Vuitton Don, Kanye West, who was photographed alongside Russell Simmons at the downtown Manhattan protest earlier this week.

Prompted by his appearance, Tweeters started poking light fun at 'Ye for joining the 99% —especially since he's considered a one-percenter— with tweets like, "Kanye probably thought Occupy Wall St was a new high end clothing store" and "Breaking news: Kanye West heading to Occupy Wall Street, to pass out Margiela zip leather jackets to hungry but curvaceous female protesters," among other posts.

XXL decided to take the jokes a bit further by imagining what West's sign could say if he was actually holding one up while chanting and marching for the rights of the poor people. Here are five different poster boards Kanye could consider waving up and down Lower Manhattan next time he pays a visit. He does it for the people!—Gina Montana
