Yelawolf gets socio-economical in a new interview with V6M TV as he speaks on Occupy Wall Street and the working class. Alabama rapper Yelawolf is the latest rapper to give his thoughts on the growing Occupy Wall Street movement. But rather than speak specifically on the movement the rapper expressed his thoughts on the working class and how important it is that they be protected. “The nine to five worker makes the world go round and if you don’t protect them and really put them first you’re fucking up the foundation. And if the foundation’s fucked up the whole building’s gonna fall down,” Yelawolf explained to V6M .

NEW YORK (Michelle Nichols) - An anti-capitalist group which sparked the Occupy Wall Street movement has called for global protests Saturday to demand G20 leaders impose a ``Robin Hood'' tax on financial transactions and currency trades. Canada-based Adbusters wants the Occupy Wall Street protest movement against economic inequality to take to the streets to call for a 1 percent tax on such deals ahead of a Nov. 3-4 summit of the Group of 20 leading economies in France. ``Let's send them a clear message: We want you to slow down some of that $1.3 trillion easy money that's sloshing around the global casino each day -- enough cash to fund every social program and environmental initiative in the world,'' the activist group said on its website, www.adbusters.org.
