More Rappers We'd Like to See at Occupy Wall Street

Hip hop often veers back and forth between partying and politics (along with other less printable "p" words). Is the music going back in a difference-making direction again? Maybe: Earlier this week, Kanye West and Russell Simmons showed up at the Occupy Wall Streets protests in New York's Zucotti Park; late last week, Talib Kweli hit the park and performed "Distraction." Lupe Fiasco and Immortal Technique headed downtown to lend their support weeks ago. But as the "Occupy" movement starts to pick up steam, there have been some notable absences. Some rappers we'd expect to align with protesters have been MIA; others who'd have a big impact by piping up haven't. Read on to see other rappers we'd to see at Occupy Wall Street.
