According to Business Insider, Jay-Z just released an Occupy Wall Street-themed T-shirt through his Rocawear line, but none of the proceeds will go toward supporting the cause. (Maybe it’s one of those “awareness” products?)
The hip-hop mogul was recently photographed rocking one of the new shirts, which has the “W” in the phrase "Occupy Wall Street" crossed out and an additional “S,” so it reads "Occupy All Streets."
(Pal and OWS supporter Russell Simmons tweeted his love for the political top and wrote that Jay-Z's new shirt "took #OccupyWallStreet to a whole new level.")
A Rocawear spokesperson tells the publication that "the 'Occupy All Streets' T-shirt was created in support of the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement," but more so to "encourage...constructive expression" than to fund the protests.
The rep continues, "At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement," a decision the Business Insider notes as ironic.
The $22 "Occupy All Streets" shirt is available at Rocawear.com, but it's already on back order.
