[Music News] Carson Daly: Kanye West Spotted At Occupy Wall Street
For the past couple weeks, we’ve seen the Occupy Wall Street protests take over not only New York City, but the entire country.
And lately, some big-time celebs are starting to take notice.
Here in LA, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rage Against The Machine[/lastfm]’s [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tom Morello[/lastfm] and actor Danny Glover contributed to the cause, but the Manhattan movement was shocked yesterday when AMP Radio artist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] stopped by to see what all the fuss was about.
Kanye, clad in some gold chains and grill, took to the streets with Def Jam record label co-founder [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Russell Simmons[/lastfm].
According to reports, the pair didn’t get too involved during their short visit.
Apparently, they looked around for a little while, then got back into their car and left.
Russell tweeted about their day trip and hinted at a possible collaboration between the protestors and artists like Kanye:
Somehow, we don’t think Kanye will be the last celebrity to show up on the streets. Who do you think will be next? [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], perhaps?
