American sculptor Daniel Edwards, an Occupy Wall Street movement supporter has crafted a sculpture of rapper Jay-Z, with cartoon characters, Scrooge McDuck, Mr. Burns from “The Simpsons” and Richie Rich.All three characters are known for their wealth and opulence, while Mr. Burns and Scrooge McDuck are known for their greed.
The sculpture features Jay-Z shirtless with gold chains and a dollar sign. Jay-Z had previously caused controversy with the Occupy Wall Street movement when he made Occupy Wall Street shirts with no plans to contribute to the movement.
Rumor Fix reports:
“I think Jay-Z has made himself a face of [the] Wall Street that Occupiers are protesting against,” said Edwards. “Maybe Jay-Z is striving to be in the one percent? Which is why I chose the composition of a totem pole because I thought it would resemble the number one. Rap stars who turn ‘Scrooge’ have to suffer some damage to their street credibility.”
