Occupy Wall Street Protesters Unveil Jay Z Scrooge Sculpture

The Occupy Wall Street vs. Jay-Z battle is heating up. Hov is selling Occupy Wall Street themed t-shirts with the words “Occupy All Streets” emblazoned on them through his Rocawear clothing line. The problem protesters have with Hov is his unwillingness to donate any of the profits from the $22 t-shirts to their cause.
The latest shot fired from OWS aimed at Jigga is a sculpture by Daniel Edwards. The piece depicts Hov wearing chains and a dollar sign around his neck, with Richie Rich on top of his head along with notorious cheapskates, Mr Burns of The Simpsons and Scrooge McDuck.
“I think Jay-Z has made himself a face of [the] Wall Street that Occupiers are protesting against,” said Edwards. “Maybe Jay-Z is striving to be in the one percent? Which is why I chose the composition of a totem pole because I thought it would resemble the number one. Rap stars who turn ‘Scrooge’ have to suffer some damage to their street credibility.”
