Kanye West took park in the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York yesterday (October 10).

The rapper was spotted with music mogul Russell Simmons at the demonstration in the heart of the city's financial district, which has entered its fourth week.

Simmons spoke about the pair's visit on Twitter: “This morning I applaud @kanyewest for using his celebrity to help others. His appearance yesterday mattered!!”

He later added: “Its tough being @kanyewest people were climbing on him. it was a huge security risk but he just kept shaking hands #occupywallstreet.”

West is the latest musician to make a public appearance at the ongoing protest.
