Talib Kweli Addresses Illuminati Rumors About Jay-Z And Kanye West [Video]

 

Brooklyn-bred emcee Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek recently spoke out about the conspiracy theories on the web surrounding Jay Z and many other celebrity ties to the “Illuminati”.

In his interview with VIBE Magazine, Kweli revealed that he read a lot of the literature surrounding conspiracy theories and the illuminati, but believes that it is not real.

“Honestly back in ’95-’96, we read a lot of the conspiracy books, including books about the Illuminati,” Talib said. “It was a part of being young, I’m not saying that we believed the world was ending in the year 2000, but we really were looking at the symbolism of things and against a lot of things. It was a part of being young and foolish.”

Although Kweli feels that there is no such thing as the Illuminati, he states that even if it is true, the power comes from people believing.

“I don’t hang with Jay-Z and Beyonce, so I don’t know what they do,” Kweli continued.  “But if they do practice [the cult of the Illuminati], how does that affect you? People fail to realize that things like that only have power when you believe in it, it doesn’t bother me because I know what they do doesn’t affect my life nor my family.”

Before conspiracy theorist start a witch hunt against Talib Kweli, check the interview in detail below.

    I believe that as wack as most of these people are you have to figure they have made a pact with some form of evil in order to gain the success they have….I mean…look at Soldier Boy, Gucci Mane…Nicki Manaj, Rhianna…I can go on for days…these people have no talent and nothing to offer the world yet they dominate the music industry meanwhile, talented well intention artists get ignored….What’s up with that?

    ” People fail to realize that things like that only have power when you believe in it”

    No. That’s Voodoo.

    ” it doesn’t bother me because I know what they do doesn’t affect my life nor my family”

    And THAT’S the power of it. People naive enough to believe that their lives are not effected by it. These are the same people that think the Federal Reserve Bank is a government organization…

  • durrrr

    aleximaq, you are a paranoid ignorant person who can’t put 2 and 2 together.

    take your baseless conspiracy thoery and junk logic and shove it up your arse.

    go read a book

  • Hooper

    It does affect us most ppl never been around black stereotype us off the things they see on TV, He’s scared and i don’t blame them how i say fight the Boule is don’t support the artist.

  • S

    i agree that he is right. there are people who’ve never heard of rhianna or jay-z, so in what way can they affect them? if illuminati really wanted to run Shyte, then they would need to go deeper than musical artists, they’d need to go into politics or government.

  • MY MY MY

    I GUESS THE ILLUMINATI IS THE 80% OF PEOPLE WHO BUY HIPHOP AND URBAN POP AKA TODAYS “R&B”. WHICH R WHITE PPL. SINCE MOST OF U IDIOTS R ON A WITCH HUNT, AND WANT TO STOP THE BIG BAD “ILLUMINATI”. SINCE THIS WAS GOING ON IN 1995-96-& I WAS LIKE IN 7TH GRADE THEN-I GOT THE SECRETE WEAPON. IF U SO TIRED OF ARTIST LIKE RIHANNA, JAYONCE, ETC- THEN Y DON’T U UP UR BUYING POWER AND SUPPORT THE ARTIST U SO CALL WANT TO HEAR ON THE RADIO. IF THE PPL R PAYING THEN THAT IS WHAT HIPHOP/R&B WILL BE SELLING. U MOTHER F^CKAS COMPLAIN-YET BE THE 1RST ONE BOOTLEGGING, GETTING FREE MUSIC OFF THE INTERNET ETC. WHEN SOMEONE WHO SINGS QUALITY MUSIC DROPS A CD, NO BODY WANTS TO DROP THE $9.99 TO SUPPORT IT. SO SHUT THE F^CK UP W/ THE ILLUMINATI BS, BROKE A$$ MOTHER F^CKAS. SOME BLACK FOLKS KILL ME!!

  • WHy

    To everyone who is quick to say the illuminati isnt real , how about u do your own research, thats what I did. Good sites to visit on youtube are esoteric kitten,theindustryexposed and forerunner777. Also psuedooccultmedia and vigilant citizen. Its not just music its politics, entertainment, food, etc.. Ignorance is Bliss-

  • terrence

    anyone who buys into this mess is an idiot, go do something positive with your time. dumbass*es

  • peppamint queen

    “How do we know that they have made a pack with the light?”

    I recall one of them saying “All black everything?”there is no light in darkness.LISTEN to some of the lyrics of “B’s” sweet dreams.To people, those words make NO sense,but if you think about satan they make perfect sense!

    p.s I Have never had a beautiful nightmare!

  • D

    Seriously, don’t listen to him think for yourself do your own research before you draw a conclusion. I think most of you will be surprised.

  • chochachoppa

    so y’all have already forgotten that Jay said “I ain’t down with that ish!” in an interview a few weeks back??
    He also said- this is gonna be the last time I will address that. Don’t wait for another statement, stop believing in bullshiz all day and be productive and do something that makes more sense than conspiracy theories!

    • peppamint queen

      “Just because JAY SAY SO…..??” Jay said that this is the last time he will address this issue??Wow!Sounds like he is exerting power of someone.Last person who spoke to me like this was my momma when I was 5.

      p.s just cause “he” said that he would not address this issue again does not mean that people will not continue to talk and wonder about that evil little secret of his.(ooh I’d better hush up before he sends one of his imps at me:)!

  • wake up folks

    JAY-Z AND isn’t in no shape or form a part of the ILLUMINATI. At most, he prolly belongs to a fraternal org or is a part of a low level free-masonary group. The global elite are the ILLUMINATI, and some of their famlies bloodlines date way back to 2000 years ago and are intertwined with Christ or kings of that era. This is wy they control the world banking system. JIGGA WILL NEVER BE ON THAT LEVEL NO MATTER HOW MANY ALBUMS HE SELLS.

  • wake up folks

    Also they do EXIST!!!!!!!!! Make no mistake about it, and through media they push materialism, in which allows them to control the minds of this genaration. Very similar to how their banks have controlled countries, people, etc. with debt for centuries..

    THEY SAY IF YOU WANNA HIDE SOMETHING FROM BLACK FOLKS PUT IT IN A BOOK ”PIMP C”

  • DrSense

    To all of u people that says the Illuminati is real and then say do your research, your research is based off of biased info given by other conspiracy theorists. If you had done REAL research you would know that the Illuminati that the church was afraid of disbanded back in the late 1800’s and that the church didn’t start saying they thought they were evil until after the disbandment. There is not any evidence that that particular branch of Illuminati (because there are many organizations with that same name) ever went underground and continued to exist. Also the Illuminati was not a religious organization nor was are the Freemasons so Idk y everyone ties them with the devil. Also Talib is right. If u put belief into something then you give it power and that is not just voodoo!! If it was then they wouldn’t teach that same belief in church when it comes prayer and acts of healing that if u trust and believe in God then he will show his power by making a way. Whatever we believe we make reality so stop believin in this garbage and do something better with your lives. Oh, and also the next time you tell people to research something tell them to go to an unbiased source!! Thats something people in college learn to do so I’m going to ask that you try to educate yourselves properly!! That is all!!

    Not believing is not going to take away the devil’s power: “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

No thanks
