Rapper Kanye West visited Occupy Wall Street yesterday with music mogul Russell Simmons, in a show of solidarity against corporate greed. Russell Simmons has been very involved with the crowd at Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan for the past couple of weeks, even meditating with the crowd. Many think that Russell urged Kanye to come to the park with him and see it firsthand, no word yet on whether he may write a song in support of it later down the road, we will see.
Afterwards, Russell "Tweeted" positively about the visit:
TUNISIA - EGYPT - LEBANON - YEMEN - SYRIA - IRAN - NEW YORK
