Famed Occult Specialist Denies Jay-Z Illuminati Rumors

 

Jay-Z Part Of The Illuminati???
Many people have weighed in and drawn conclusions on the subject of Jay Z and his alleged ties to an occult lifestyle.

According to famed author and occult expert Mitch Horowitz, Jay Z is not an occult member, but an imagery genius.

In an interview posted on BigThink.com he praises Jay for being a “genius” saying,

“No [He's not an occultist] He’s a genius who has a very shrewd eye for kind of oppositional imagery in our culture. He uses these things and he understands the magnetism of these symbols. You know, symbols like the pentagram and the eye in the pyramid or astrological symbols, they do have a certain magnetic power. They have a pull on us.”


Horowitz also states that due to conditioning people all over the world have been trained to respond internally to certain images and being an artist Jay Z is playing on that internal appeal.

I think when you’re using imagery that comes from the ancient world or that comes from Renaissance-era occultism, there is a little something going on there,” Horowitz continued. “We’ve never quite figured out a way to digest the image of the pentagram. Some people are really attracted to it, other people recoil from it.

Jay-Z understands this and when he uses these images in his videos, on his clothing, and in other places, you know, he realizes that we are people who think in images and that you can take an image and you get a response from people.”


In conclusion, Horowitz states that people can put up their stakes and stop the crusades because Jay Z isn’t a part of any occult and if he is, he is not using imagery in his videos to spread “satanic” beliefs.

“I was asked at one point whether I thought Jay-Z was a Freemason because of some of the images that appear in his videos,” Horowitz said. “One of his videos also shows an image of Mao Tse Tung, I don’t think he’s an Agrarian Socialist. I don’t think he’s an occultist, but I do think he is probably a genius in terms of using imagery.”


Horowitz is the author of  “Occult America” and was awarded the 2010 PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Award for literary excellence.

  • Pilot Talk

    Please don’t make comments on this if you haven’t taken any theological courses or any type of degree that relates to the subject. Wikipedia shouldn’t be your only source of knowledge. “Crackpot” theories don’t count either.Please go to school its the only way to dispel ignorance such as this. Most of you don’t even know how to properly read biblical text, so just please stop making a mockery of theology and don’t blindly believe that Jay-Z is a member of an ancient cult because he’s an influential figure in America.

    • anony

      Jay-z is not a member of the Illuminati. He’s just a puppet. Do your research on the Illuminati and secret societies.

  • Hmmmm

    Oooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  • Suzepf

    First off before y’all judge him and what he does in HIS private life, do y’all all even know whe the meaning/definition of “occult”? Do y’all even know what Masons stand for?

    I mean if we were to judge the Masons based on symbols that folks think are unnerving or creepy, then what do u think worshiping at the feet of a dead man nailed to a cross look like to them, Or the religion that worships or the Religion that worships a 4 armed elephant looking man named Ganesh, etc. Isn’t that just as “creepy”. It’s not creepy at all. U need to just understand the meaning of it.

    The word occult comes from the Latin word occultus, referring to “knowledge of the hidden”.

    The CHURCH’S gave it the name. Why? Because any information that they felt threatened the bible is occult. As in “hidden knowledge”. That information is hidden. So people who can not think for themselves can continue to follow crooked preachers. The bibles written for religions such as Catholic, Protestant, etc are basically a guideline of what not to do (morals). There are so many versions of the bible written. Why is ur bible better than the next? Religious institutions picks what ever bible works for them. The end result is the same. We meet our maker when we die. It’s ashame that the world has so many wars over RELIGION, money and politic. If folks would just think for themselves and not be so quick to judge the world would be a better place.

    2nd: The illumanti (mason’s) built this very Nation’s capital (DC) based on the fact that this nation is FREE to worship as they please. The Federal triangle for example is a great example of how the city was built on how the way the Mason’s operate. Look it up. Masons such as G. Washington, Pierre L’Enfant, etc. Mason’s follow astrology and believed in a higher supreme being and they use astrology as a way to get to this higher being. The difference between Religions that we follow and what Mason’s “do” is that in religion u are converted, in Mosonry ur chosen.

    Religion has an actual name of their “God” or “Allah” or “Budha” or “Jesus”, Masons don’t. But they do believe there is a supreme higher being or architect of the universe. I mean come on people think for yourselves. Church is really just therapy to get ur mind right. Keep ur life straight. Build some morality in folks while teaching a bit of ancient history. And if u go every weekend then it’s cuz maybe u need too in order to validate ur life. Bottom line is people are free to worship in any way they need too.

    The prerequisite for becoming a Mason is that u MUST believe in a higher power.

    3rd: Masons is not a secret society but a more rather a society that keeps secrets. Secrets of ancient history. Secrets that if released to the wrong person can cause catastophe for all mankind. Secret knowledge is passed on to preserve ancient history or “wisdoms” thru Masons.

    The difference between Masons and Religion is that Religions assure salvation, believe in precise theology and convertnonbelievers. Mason’s, however, make no promises of salvation, they have no specific theology and do not seek to convert u. Masons in essence are just refreshingly open minded.

    I can go on and on and on but I won’t. Bottom line is people fear what they don’t understand. Misunderstanding a culture’s symbol’s is a common root of predjudice.

    I’m not a follower. so who cares. But love bey!

    If you don’t understand spiritual warfare, you’re nowhere near to the understanding of what the illuminati is

  • Bellissimma

    BullShyte! I don’t really care nor give a damn what this wealthy buffoon does, but it’s quite apparent that many themes projected through him are quite systematic and last time I checked, he’s not a video director… So, give credit where it’s actually due.

  • tonde

    Just who do you think you are kiddin Mr Horowitz, jigga is a mason no doubt pliz stop tryin 2 confuse the masses and let them know the truth, so is it imagery tht he uses in his lyrics too

  • D.

    He is a genius??? Einstein was a genius! If black people would spend half the amount of time, that they spend trying to figure out what Jay-Z is, we could possibly pull ourself out of the slums.

  • Persia

    @ Susie You said all that to say what?? What is your point? Tell me something I don’t know? I KNOW WHO THEY BELIEVE IN AND WHO THEY SERVE. HE IS NOT ILLUMINATI HE IS A PUPPET USED BY THEM BC HE IS BLACK AND THEY ARE VERY VERY RACIST WHITES IN CONTROL…HE IS A MASON IN 33RD DEGREE BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING DEMONIC WHAT IS DEMONIC IS THAT HE SEE’S HIMSELF AS A GOD, HOV KING, SO ALL THESE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT RELIGION RETARDS I BEG TO DIFFER BC IF THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD THEN WHY DO THEY ACKNOWLEDGE THE OPPOSITE OF GOD? LUCIFER WAS HURLED DOWN TO EARTH BC HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOD AND GREATER, THAT SAME BELIEF IS PREVALENT TODAY COINCIDENCE? HELL NO…THE GREATEST DECEPTION THAT HE DID WAS TELL YOU GOD DOESN’T EXIST !

    • http://www.TheSpannReport.com Mr. Spann

      What proof do you have that he is a 33rd Degree Freemason?

      • Eliyahu_ben_Yehoshua7

        i was wondering the proof too? As one familiar with the craft, ive been curious as to how everyone has become an expert on freemasonry all of a sudden.

  • hurt

    I don’t mess with Jay z no more, him and his crew .

  • Suzepf

    Actually @Persia What is YOUR point lol? don’t Masons think they are a God once they THINK they’ve done what man has never done before so they feel they have “God like” powers. Isn’t that the way they operate. I never said the man was demonic. He’s basically taking advantage of a lucrative situation, that’s it. I’m just saying I hate folks who are quick to judge. People are free to worship how they choose. Churchs nowadays scare me. Preach one thang and get caught doing the ooposite. And the crazy part is some churches got the preachers driving Bentley’s and what not. And make it a requirement to put in 20% of their salary to be a member. THAT SOUNDS LIKE GREED TO ME. People should just THINK FOR themselves. Raise YOUR kids and teach them what’s right instead of blaming it on music and TV. If you don’t like him don’t listen to him. Period! Whether our creator is God, Allah, Budah, it’s all the same. When we die we meet our maker. Stories in these bibles are put some morals in us! Live ur life right, don’t act the gat dayum fool and overall just be a good person. I bet u if Jay Z was to come and offer a 1 million bucks to help people in need the same folks who talked about would take his money tho. I’m pretty sure the illimunati has evolved into groups: the racist evil ones, the good ones and the younger new age trying to bring positive life to it, etc. Ok I’m out! Good nite.

    • http://www.TheSpannReport.com Mr. Spann

      Actually Masons don’t believe themselves to be GOD. As a Mason for the last 10 years, that has NEVER been taught in Freemasonry. So no, that’s NOT how we operate.

  • Suzepf

    If you don’t like his music turn it off and read a friggin book. Problem solved!

  • u can back jayz all u want. But even if he is not a freemason or some sort of satanic cult why shud he be creatin impressions in imagery and lyrics? Am not concludin but personali i hav lost my respect 4 him, plus dis rumor is 2 strong 2 b fake. And if he

    in hell he wil spend him eternity.

    • Eliyahu_ben_Yehoshua7

      If one doesnt believe in a god, then hell does not affect such person, just as if i saw a gay man next to me, i could care not since i am not gay. We live in a society of sickos that think heaven and hell is real and god-men dying and resurrecting is real.

  • TTB

    You do not have to be a member of a specific occult to use and draw power from the same symbols said occult uses.

  • Juanit Binamu

    i real like freemason its nito

  • Eliyahu_ben_Yehoshua7

    Its called working hard, rather than looking to welfare and handouts you may wanna try working hard too.
