Jay-Z doesn’t like picnics– at least, not in Zuccotti Park.

In a new interview with New York Times Magazine, the rapper and businessman clarified his position on the Occupy Wall Street movement — namely that he never actually supported the protesters, citing a lack of clarity in their message and their demonization of entrepreneurs.
