The Occupy Wall Street Movement Comes to Oakland (Photos)

If you haven’t been following, heard of, or participating in, shame on you.  Occupy Wall Street demonstrations have been happening all over the country and in my hometown I go to work seeing protestors diligently fighting against corporate greed for over a week now.  Occupy Oakland is right outside of City Hall and for the past week there have been demonstrations, rallies, marches, and even celebrity appearances from different spectrums; Danny Glover and Lupe Fiasco.  Yes, I’ve been reading the concerns about public safety and people taking advantage of this opportunity but let me show you the positives visually that’s happening in my neck of the woods!

Janelle Monae- Tightrope Rmx ft. B.O.B, Lupe Fiasco

There is nothing you can down play right now about the sizzling Janelle Monae, not only his her curls bouncing but her latest album “ArchAndroid” is amazing and she is really blessed to be in the industry at this time.  If you didn’t peep her performance of the Prince Tribute at the BET awards, oh you are missing out! Enjoy this remix version of “Tightrope”, great shots!
