For the past few days, the internet has been buzzing about Jay-Z’s ‘Occupy All Streets’ t-shirt. At first, when fellow hip hop mogul Russell Simmons tweeted a backstage photo of Hov wearing it at a concert, no one made too big of a fuss. UPDATE: Russell Simmons and Jay-Z are full of shit!

But when Rocawear planned on selling the tees and not donating any of the proceeds to Occupy Wall Street, the mood quickly changed and the backlash began.

Maybe that explains why the tee is no longer available on the brand’s website. In fact, there’s no mention of it anywhere on the e-commerce site and the only place it can be found is in the Google cache.


We reached out to Jay-Z’s publicist, Jana Fleishman, but she has yet to respond.

Meanwhile, Russell Simmons has been defending Jay-Z and his intentions on Twitter, writing that the rapper “did a good fun thing to promote awareness” about OWS and as of this morning he still is showing support. Someone should probably let him know.
