Kanye West Visits Occupy Wall Street Without Removing Gold Chains [Updated]


Everyone’s favorite petulant rapper and producer — he of Lanvin, many necklaces, and the mutilated Maybach — made a pilgrimage with demonstration regular Russell Simmons today to see how the other 99 percent lives. No word yet on whether or not he’s covering Radiohead songs, or even performing at all, but we’ve seen him go without beats before. Then again, maybe that drum circle has a purpose after all.

Update: Apparently it was just a quick stroll through. After getting mobbed by crowds, he left, but not before flashing a smile.
