Jay-Z Occupy Wall Street Shirts Not on Rocawear Site Anymore

Jay-Z came under fire last week after a rep for his Rocawear clothing line announced he would be releasing an Occupy Wall Street-inspired shirt that would not benefit the movement. Now, it appears the T-shirt idea has been scrapped.

TMZ reports Jay-Z’s “Occupy All Streets” tees, which Jay-Z was pictured rocking during one of his Watch the Throne concert stops recently, are no longer on sale on the Rocawear site.

Before the t-shirts were pulled, TMZ spoke with Grim, one of the leaders of the Occupy movement, about Jay-Z’s new clothing venture, and he said, “Jay-Z, as talented as he is, has the political sensibility of a hood rat and is a scrotum. To attempt to profit off of the first important social moment of 50 years with an overpriced piece of cotton is an insult to the fight for economic civil rights known as #occupywallstreet.”

Jay-Z has not publicly responded to the reports.—Gina Montana

    PLEASE READ THIS! Before everyone starts the Fight Fest and Name calling…let’s stop looking to “Entertainers” to do ANTYHING for us. The only thing ALL entertainers care about is the bottom line…how much did I make? And who helps them make their loot? Everyday people who purchase their music, go see their movies, go to see them play sports, etc. Well it’s time that they ALL feel the pinch too. How about keeping your cash in your pocket and do something for yourself, your family or some who could use a hand up…not a hand out. I’m just saying….

    Jay-Z is an opportunist. His shirt definitely cheapened a genuine movement and would have made it into some narrow-minded “fuck everybody” mentality that is already endemic among black youth and the cause of their dearth of education and excessive violence.

    Damn, that is a low blow to Hov. Hov might not care what rappers say about him but what this dude, Grim, said gotta hit Jay in the heart. Shit somewhat makes sense.

  • Brand-New

    Damn! The last time Jay got dissed like that was from Mr. Nasir Jones. Grim does make a great point, and Jay or his staff obviously realized it wasn’t a smart move to continue.
