Jay-Z's short-lived "Occupy All Streets" t-shirt made a rare appearance on the X Factor on Wednesday night.
Contestant Chris Rene was the lucky man who donned the controversial tee, which was pulled from the Rocawear website less than a week after it became available. Apparently Occupy Wall Street protesters weren't happy that Jay-Z wasn't going to share the profits with them.
As for how Chris got the shirt, the show's head stylist June Ambrose said the shirt came from the Jigga Man himself.
Way to represent the 99%.

As we mentioned last year, Trey Songz was chosen to rep Rocawear and appear in the brand’s ads.
Now, the hottie is the new face in the company’s video campaign for their latest fragrance, Evolution.
And the video gets straight to its point — if you wear the cologne, you’ll get laid. Hah!
Check out the sexy teaser clip above as Trey seduces (or is he being seduced?) a sexy lady.

For the 12 people that still wear Rocawear, two new faces will be appearing in the winter campaign.
The label, which is surprisingly still in business, has tapped Trey Songz and Melanie Fiona to appear in the new ads, which will be in the September issues of Vibe and XXL.
Think they'll help sales???

Move over Ken! There's a new guy in town and his name is Darren.
Mattel has come out with a new doll created by Barbie designer Stacey McBride-Irby. The African-American mother says she was inspired by the original iconic doll and wanted her dolls to "inspire girls to play, create and live out their dreams!"
Darren brings his swagger to the Barbie world thanks to his personal stylist Jay-Z who dressed him in Rocawear. And it looks like he's sporting a nice watch too!
In addition to dressing well, D also does well in geography and sports.
Brains, good fashion sense and a jock? Ken's got some steep competition!
No word if he costs less than the other male dolls.
