Jay-Z Is Big Pimpin' For Occupy Wall Street

In today's installment of "1%ers rep Occupy Wall Street," Kanye West and Jay-Z hit Madison Square Garden last night for their Watch the Throne tour, and oh, my! Look at that shirt! Russell Simmons took to Twitter for a typically restrained, thoughtful analysis: "Jay-Z just took #OccupyWallStreet to a whole new level. wowowowowowoow."

Now it's only a matter of time until Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Russell Brand, and (hell, why not) Mickey Rourke, get their assistants to call their driver and tell them to drive really slow by Zuccotti Park, in solidarity. No word on whether Mr. Sean Carter sees any irony in sitting on his "Throne" and supporting a movement driven to improving the lives of the poor and middle class. Maybe it refers to those new porta-potties?
