Hip-Hop Mogul Russell Simmons aka @UncleRush VS Jay-Z Occupy Wall Street

| September 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

Russell Simmons posted an essay online today entitled ” Jay-Z Is Right 99 Times, But This Ain’t One,” aimed at Jay-Z which stated the argument of why the Occupy Wall Street movement is important to American democracy, and why Jay-Z should show more support for it.

Simmons wrote ” I know he is a compassionate person, who cares about the poor, so I’m certain if I had two more minutes with him, I could change his mind.”

An excerpt from Simmons Essay says:

“So, Jay, here’s the deal. You’re rich and I’m rich. But, today it’s close to impossible to be you or me and get out of Marcy Projects or Hollis, Queens without changing our government to have our politicians work for the people who elect them and not the special interests and corporations that pay them…If we have to occupy Wall Street or occupy All Streets to change the course of direction of this nation, then we must.”
