“Occupy All Streets” Shirts Pulled From Roc-a-Wear Website

 

“I am a hustler baby, I sell water to a whale…”Hip-Hop heavy-weight, Jay-Z, spits on his 2001 classic, The Blueprint.

Well if there was any doubt that he meant it, he sent shock waves through Occupy Wall Streets crowds by creating a “Occupy all Streets” t-shirt for his Roc-a-wear collection. He really had people protesting corporate greed ready to spend over $20 on a t-shirt, with no plans to donate to the movement, just to capitalize off of its momentum.

Without warning, though, he pulled the shirt from Roc-a-wear’s website, and a spokesman released an unofficial statement:

“The ‘Occupy All Streets’ T-shirt was created in support of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement.” He adds, “Roc-a-wear strongly encourages all forms of constructive expression, whether it be artistic, political or social.
