SPEAK ON IT: Rocawear Has No Plans To Share OCCUPY ALL STREETS Profits With Protesters

Jay-Z and Rocawear are launching an Occupy Wall Street T-shirt line today....but don't plan to donate any profits to the movement's originators. And some people are pissy.  Does that make Jay-Z a part of the problem or just a "smart" business man. Plus, go inside marketing guru to the A-Listers Steve Stoute's life and his TANNING effect.

 

Speak on it inside.....

If you want to latch on to a cause that is both fashionable and politically correct (to most), Rocawear has the answer.

The clothing label is launching a line of Occupy Wall Street t-shirts today that will "support" the movement in principle....but not financially.  The shirts spin the phrase "Occupy Wall Street"  making it read "Occupy All Streets."   Rocawear says it's to expand the notion of rectifying wrongs in all places...not just Wall Street.

A Rocawear spokeswoman said in a statement to Gawker,

The 'Occupy All Streets' T shirt was created in support of the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement. 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.

You decide.....is Jay-Z a part of the exact problem all the Occupy Wall Streeters are protesting (e.g. the 1 percenters taking things from people, making money from it, and not sharing the profits properly)? Or is this just a good business move and capitalizing on a "moment" while you can?

 

SPEAK ON IT.......

 

BONUS:

Speaking of hip hop & social politics...watch this "Nightline" piece on Steve Stoute and his book The Tanning of America: How Hip-Hop Created a Culture That Rewrote the Rules of the New Economy.  It goes inside the life of the business guru--from glitzy A-List parties to serious mainstream business deals he's cut for pretty much ALL your favorite artists--furthering their international brands even more.

Why Not Donate and support

Why Not Donate and support the moment is because ROCAWEAR IS APART of the Problem all that Money made by artist who have no rights over their own material i always felt was theft record companies being coin that since they found out niggas can sing and dance and are innervators of pop,rock and hiphop nation wide all them shady contracts been keeping all that stolen money in the pockets of rich tax evading, moony having, dirty sum dirtbag MF so F off rocawear where they do that at.......... u gonna take our idea and not donate nothing

Why not all the profits!

Why not all the profits! Some people..... the only reason you have all that moneys is because of us hard working little people!!! I can't believe he's trying to bank off this. I agreed with everyone else he is one ugly guy Beyonce wouldn't have looked at him twice if he didn't have money!!!

Jay's ugly camel face felt

Jay's ugly camel face felt the heat and pulled the t-shirts from Rocawear's website. But the cat's out the bag. People already see how money greedy and opportunistic Jay is from this stunt.
Anonymous's picture

Also, if Jay/Rocawear really

Also, if Jay/Rocawear really supported OWS like the statement says, why not just sell the t-shirts and just donate some money to the cause, instead of pulling the t-shirts altogether? Because Jay is full is shit! He DOESN'T support OWS, that's why the shirts were called Occupy All Streets, which is not the same as Occupy Wall Street.

...... also, the people who

...... also, the people who say they can't get with the ows movement because its constituents are mostly the rich and the upper middle class. i'm glad they have the spirit and courage to protest and bring attention to the powers that be just how corrupt and unfair the country has become, because the ones who really need to be there participating in the movement, the poor, the disenfranchise are so unconcerned, unaware, or not doing anything but putting down the ows protesters who are trying to make a change ....

did it ever occur to you that

did it ever occur to you that the ones who NEED to be there, can't AFFORD to be there? many are too busy working check to check, trying to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads to stand around on wall street with picket signs. your killing me with the elitist asshole drivel.

to the people who say does'nt

to the people who say does'nt j have enough money, does walmart have enough money, does nike have enough money, warren buffet, bill gates, sprint, sony, bmw, mercedes benz etc. j is a business man. the point is you want to continue building your wealth empire if you can. Now, the part where he's not donating any of the proceeds to the ows movement is his right, but is it politically correct and that's what upset the people. but, he has donated and contributed to many causes in the past, so .....

The internet, television and

The internet, television and radio have been abuzz---it's a shame that Jay-Z can get away with anything because of who he is and his fans support knowing full right that it is wrong. This man has enough money to live the rest of his life and he still has to pull stunts like this---sad. I guess it's true what Nas said, he sold he soul a long time ago.

He is just making a decision

He is just making a decision from a more business standpoint and he cant get involved in political views and ventures because it will hurt his brand and business at the end of the day and you have to look at all sides and not find ways to attack him in his decision making and CEO's and leaders can never please everyone at all times however
PrincetonAKA Soror's picture

Bullshit! Plenty of artists

Bullshit! Plenty of artists have lent their support to political movements. That's a cop out and piss poor excuse. If he didn't want to get involved, then he should have stayed far away from it ALL. His motives are blatant and clear, and that is how can he profit off of it. There are millions of people involved in OWS and all he's looking at is how many of these t-shirts can he push.
Anonymous's picture

It's a good idea and decent

It's a good idea and decent way to support. And contrary to the idea of Jay-Z trying to capitalize and become part of the problem, by making it clear upfront that the movement isn't being funded by sales he's making sure people aren't buying the shirts for that reason. Also if it was an unknown who came up with the idea and made money but didn't share the profits, most people would figure that's his right. Just because you're already rich doesn't mean you know longer have the right to make more money.

ATTN ALL SELFISH BLACK FEMALE PROFESSIONALS/BLACK WOMEN WHO REMEMBER THE 90'S,80'S,70'S ETC. when there were NO latinas all over black media. It is your responsibility to take ACTION to bring back black women to mainstream media. Stop being so selfish. Call/email/twitter bet, debra lee, stephen g. hill, black rappers/singers, etc and DEMAND that they promote black women in a positive light. Why do you think that black male rappers do NOT, include latino MEN, brazilian MEN,etc in music videos? ANSWER: Because all hell is going to break loose if diddy, lil wayne, 50 cent, rick ross, gucci mane, waka flock, young jeezy etc have to look like a latino or brazilian male model to make money. WAKE UP!!! The face of the men in black music has remained the same. The majority of black male rappers/singers are dark skin and they only look out for themselves.

Answer: They wanted to project this LIE/ILLUSION that they are kings and that every woman of every race/ethnicity/religion wants a blk male. They then get to say they are special because the media does not really show black women that are dating/married to men of other races. Those of you in the black community know that black ppl hold black women down and discourage black females from dating outside their race and let black males do whatever they want. Black men can sell drugs,kill,rape,molest,disrespect and get away with.

JAY and his damn wife are some cold empty individuals remember Beyonce did a concert for Gadhfi's son not giving a damn about the blood money she was receiving. You know my sister has been to one of these Occupy protest (the one in Canada) and she met a girl with Leprosy that is now 22 and has been on the streets since age 12. The girl has been raped during her years on the street and cant even get a doctor to see her because she has no home address. Jay- and his damn wife need prayer and its are fault for holding them in such high esteem.

INSIDE OF THE MIND OF PEOPLE

INSIDE OF THE MIND OF PEOPLE LIKE JAY-Z. While everyone is praising these rich celebs and are caught up in THEIR bling and lifestyle, they are laughing all the way to bank. Those Who Passively Accept Their Exploitation Deserve To Be Slaves (A Letter Written By a Billionaire) I make the decisions, you follow the decisions, I am the decision maker, you are the cowards who worship money even though you have none. You are the sick people, I am not sick, at least I have a purpose that serves me: to accumulate more and more. My purpose in life is to fill my vaults with gold, with money, with your crystallized labor. It is the point, you are all just crystallized labor, we take you, we train you in our ‘educational’ facilities, we train you how to work for us. Believe me, if the purpose of the educational process was to teach you how to think or work for yourself, it would not take 16 years. For 16 years we lock you up inside of the academic prisons, teaching you how to work for us, how to serve us while destroying your own class. For 16 years, the educational poison rewires your mind, blinds your visions, distorts your purpose so that you may serve me instead of your people. For 16 years our universities teach you about efficacy, hard work and productivity so that you may be productive for me. There is no you, there is no middle class, there is no lower class, there are only worker ants. You do not exist as a human being, in my eyes, you are nothing but a machine, a unit, meant to increase my net worth. I am always amused by poor people who think they’re working for themselves. You work for us, you work so that I may sit on my ass and play golf all day. You work so that I may buy more homes, more gold, more people, more assets, more things. You work because my academic institutions have brainwashed you into thinking that society serves you. Society serves me not you, look at how I live, look at how you live. Look at how you struggle to keep up with payments on things that I advanced to you. Look at how I use credit to keep you stuck inside a cycle of spiritual poverty. Look at how my marketers have wired your minds to make you feel poor because you cannot afford the Ray-Bans that Rihanna has. I am sorry but I refuse to see you as a human being, anyone who accepts their exploitation and learns to enjoy it is a slave. You are a wage-slave, we pay a little bit of money which you return to us shortly, then you slave away. A Billionaire
