The Occupy Wall Street protesters are not letting up on Jay-Z, as they've recently discovered that his Rocawear "Occupy All Streets" t-shirts are not benefiting the cause. Now, they've went on an all-out assault on the mega star, uncovering a sculpture by by Daniel Edwards, which depicts him as a modern-day Scrooge.

The totem pole sculpture features Hov on the bottom rung with rows of dollar sign chains around hiis neck, and other famous cheapskates resting on top of him, including Mr. Burns, Scrooge McDuck and Richie Rich.

Edwards spoke out about what he was trying to depict with the sculpture, saying "I think Jay-Z has made himself a face of [the] Wall Street that Occupiers are protesting against. 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."

What do you think of the sculpture?
