Jay-Z, Rocawear Release "Occupy All Streets" T-Shirt

Rocawear adds a topical tee to its collection.

It appears as though Jay-Z and Rocawear have gone political.

Jay-Z was recently spotted backstage during his and Kanye West's "Watch The Throne" concert at Madison Square Garden alongside Russel Simmons, sporting an "Occupy All Streets" t-shirt.

The shirt is a play on the "Occupy Wall Street" protest, which has taken root in cities all over the United States, and even internationally.

"The 'Occupy All Streets' T shirt was created in support of the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement," said a Rocawear spokesman in a statement to gawker.com. "Rocawear strongly encourages all forms of constructive expression, whether it be artistic, political or social. 'Occupy All Streets' is our way of reminding people that there is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street. At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement."

    Sorry, but I have to agree with the "haters," this isn't cool at all. Unless he's giving them out for free, then I would agree that he's in support of the movement. You don't just take advantage at a time when people are supposed to be fighting against wall street not supporting it. It's more like Wall Street Occupies YOUR Streets!

  • Tony Yayo Is Gay

    How about some occupy wall street socks or a hoody or sumn? Its almost winter out here n shit

  • WESF

    DAMN!!!WHY YALL MAD AT HOV????LMAO..EAT A DICK FAGGOTS

  • Fado

    and people shouldn't compare occupy wall street too the tea party, the tea party before it got all this momentum was actually created by a rich republican organization. Look it up.

  • lon

    yall bitches need to stop hating , dude took the shit and flipped it, learn how to get money and stop being fucking crabs in a barrel, why don't yall go look for everyone else selling occupy wall street shirts and tell them to give up proceeds, gtfoh..i ordered mine today, the shirt is official..stop hating niggaz...just like when OBAMA BECAME PRESIDENT , everyone from the corner store to fucking Berlin was selling Obama merchandise, was any of yall bitches screaming "give up the proceed"? hell no!!! so fuck off

  • Fado

    instead of crucifying this black man for making a shirt that nobody is being forced too buy, yall should direct some of that negative energy at the muthafuckas in wall street that are spending your tax paying money on private jets and getting $200 mill bonuses then going back too the government for more money like the government is a bank. This shirt is just a play of words with slight meaning too it and yall are getting in your feelings about it. THE OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT NEEDS MORE ORGANIZATION AND LEADERSHIP THEN IT DOES MONEY......

    I still wear rocawear but fuck this shirt. He should be ashamed knowing he's in the top 1%.

  • Mr Flamboyant

    Just perfect to have him stand with the man who always spoke toward a cause that was beneficial to him just to get paid and yet not actually stand up for the real issue and support such a stand. If anyone buys this shirt, they need their asses kicked.

  • Swordz

    Any one rocking a corporate tee shirt to an anti capitalism protest should automatically be shot. But dickheads will probably still buy them. The Roc Boys win again.

  • riiiiiiiiiight

    is the shirt free? if not, pls shut up

  • Real Talk 100

    Yo Hov, just rap, drop the "Che Guevera wit bling on" bullshit, you aint complex your dumb as fuck. You are a Capitalist who worked hard and got to the top, the REAL American Dream, the REAL example of American Exceptionalism yet you are trying to support tearing down that same GREAT system that changed your life? Ya Che Guevera was a murdering Communist genocidal racist who was racist against blacks. Did you guys hear the GREAT news from Cuba? They came up with a GREAT NEW idea. Last week they announced they are goin to LEGALIZE the BUYING AND SELLING OF REAL ESTATE! As in REAL ESTATE SALES WERE ILLEGAL. Communism is like the wave of the future! A few years ago they actually made CELL PHONES LEGAL. As in until a few years ago CELL PHONES WERE ILLEGAL!! Isnt Communism GREAT!! Down with Capitalism!!!

    Jay wants to occupy, Occupy Wallstreet, squeeze the last drop of blood from the poor protesters and make a profit, is'nt that a contradiction to what the movements all about.

    • h

      The nigga sold dope to get ahead, goes into the white house and eats lunch with Obama to occupying wallstreet for t shirt sales. i wonder whats next in store, there has to be something this guy would'nt do for money. seems like complete madness, his head pops up on all sides and directions where's the heart felt integrity

  • Anonymous

    This nigga and 50 cent both trying to make profits and cash-in on a good cause. Rocawear should be giving them out at near cost-price for it to be even considered noble. Or the price charged for the shirt should be given to support the protesters and make a more powerful movement.

    • Anonymous

      ....and who exactly would the money go to? Sorry but their going about it all wrong they will accomplish nothing and eventually give up tho i support their cause. And now some dbag will prolly comment and say well if everyone that supported it went and protested blah blah blah uhh yea but some of us work for bullshit ass pay checks for bills.

  • G-Bee

    Haha man, Jay-Z adores Wall Street, everybody knows that!

    this dude is only interested in money. he is as wron as does greedy bankers

    • Mr Flamboyant

      Yeah, Tazzz... you got sonned. Ben Franklin's transcendent words reign prophetic as heck. Occupy Common Sense, Critical Thinking, and Deductive Reasoning should be happening for the masses...but it never will. People don't think cause it's too much like a job. They'd rather have someone think for them and then complain when they realize they got screwed later.

    • Real Talk 100

      @TaZzZ Heres real math for you: Central Planning and Keynesian Economics has failed 100% of the time in history. If your stats are correct, the reason there are 70 million jobs and 100 million people is because of Clinton, Bush, Obama, Alan Greenspan, and Ben Bernanke all building a house of cards they call the "service economy" or the "information age", where we import $50 billion per month greater than we export, an economy built on artificially cheap money, an economy based on borrowing and spending. Now let me try to teach you reading: go read that shit I quoted Franklin on, its a warning to us here in the future, its exactly what we are seeing today, from the crooked politicians, to the crooked banks, to the low wages, to the misguided wars, to the misguided people Occupying Wall Street, he covers it all.

    • TaZzZ

      ^^^^^^ This guy got his bachelor's in political science from FOX news... It has nothing to do with capitalism and socialism my son. It's about minimizing the number of people who can't afford to feed their families because they're aren't enough jobs, nor do they pay enough. Its just math. If you have 70 million jobs and 100 million ppl, theres no way to swing it, point blank. Do you know what its like to go to school, pay 200k and dedicate 4 years of your life to getting a job that never comes after graduation?

      Ben Franklin 6/2/1787: "Sir, there are two passions which have a powerful influence on the affairs of men. These are ambition and avarice; the love of power, and the love of money. Separately, each of these has great force in prompting men to action; but when united in view of the same object, they have in many minds the most violent effects. Place before the eyes of such men a post of honor, that shall be at the same time a place of profit, and they will move heaven and earth to obtain it. The vast number of such places it is that renders the British government so tempestuous. The struggles for them are the true sources of all those factions, which are perpetually dividing the nation, distracting its councils, hurrying sometimes into fruitless and mischievous wars, and often compelling a submission to dishonorable terms of peace. "And of what kind are the men that will strive for this profitable pre-eminence, through all the bustle of cabal, the heat of contention, the infinite mutual abuse of parties, tearing to pieces the best of characters? It will not be the wise and moderate, the lovers of peace and good order, the men fittest for the trust. It will be the bold and the violent, the men of strong passions and indefatigable activity in their selfish pursuits. These will thrust themselves into your government, and be your rulers. And these, too, will be mistaken in the expected happiness of their situation: for their vanquished competitors, of the same spirit, and from the same motives, will perpetually be endeavouring to distress their administration, thwart their measures, and render them odious to the people. "Besides these evils, Sir, though we may set out in the beginning with moderate salaries, we shall find that such will not be of long continuance. Reasons will never be wanting for proposed augmentations. And there will always be a party for giving more to the rulers, that the rulers may be able in return to give more to them. Hence, as all history informs us, there has been in every state and kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing and governed, the one striving to obtain more for its Support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally, indeed, the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing; and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes, the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partizans, and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in an hundred, who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever. It will be said, that we don't propose to establish kings. I know it; but there is a natural inclination in mankind to kingly government. It sometimes relieves them from aristocratic domination. They had rather have one tyrant than five hundred. It gives more of the appearance of equality among citizens, and that they like. I am apprehensive, therefore, perhaps too apprehensive, that the government of these States may in future times end in a monarchy. But this catastrophe I think may be delayed, if in our proposed system we do not sow the seeds of contention, faction, and tumult, by making our posts of honor, places of profit. If we do, I fear that, though we do employ at first a number, and not a single person, the number will in time be set aside; it will only nourish the fetus of a king, as the honorable gentleman from Virginia very aptly expressed it, and a king will the sooner be set over us.

      Ya I know what an evil system we have here. Instead of SLAVERY, in America we have a system where people go to work and actually get paychecks or "profits" from their labor. PROFITS AND MONEY ARE EVIL! We need to end Capitalism and bring back Socialist Slavery so that people work for the "GOOD" of HUMANITY like in Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, instead of always caring about making evil money that buys people evil food, and evil houses, and evil cars, and evil Iphones, and evil Air Conditioning and all the other evil stuff that people produce and enjoy in Capitalism for the almight dollar!

  • thought dog

    I started thinking Jay-z is some illuminati puppet last year but after some of the verses he spit on WTT and putting out shirts like this....I think I see what this muh fugga is doing. You go dog.

    • thought dog

      Sure theres no illuminati...Thats why somebody like JFK would write about secret societies right? And how do you figure the occupy protests would be something the ones in charge want? They already control the system as it is...The last thing they want is for the people to rise up and tear it all down.

    • Real Talk

      @MeCouldBetterEataDick Well I dont know about Illumanati or Lucifer, but we have seen a world wide real life "conspiracy" theory in history before: back than they didnt call it the Illumanti they called it Socialism. One was International Socialism (Communism), the other was National Socialism (Fascism/Nazism). Both are Godless worship of the State, evil, and genocidal, pretty damn close to what we would consider Hell on Earth and Satanic, so hey maybe you're right lol. Except about the Real Talk can eat dick thing, fuck you for that.

    • RealTalkCouldBetterEatADick

      of course the illuminati is supporting the occupy protest. They want the system to fall so they can create a new world out of the chaos. Illuminati is linked with the Devil/Satan/Lucifer. he wants the world to fall so he can bring the anti christ in, so the people could run to him for help. When they do they get the mark of the beast and they is DOOMED. Most people will be doomed. will u?

    • Real Talk 100

      Go read a book you dumb fuck, there is no such thing as the Illumanati, and if there actually is an Illumanti its SUPPORTING this Occupy movement! You brainwashed fucks are so CLUELESS! Have you ever been apart of organizing a political event or any event? This Occupy movement must have HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS if not a couple BILLION dollars fueling it! Ask yourself by who and for what? Where have we seen similar things in history before?
