There used to be something ultra exclusive about the rappers rumored to be in the Illuminati, now anybody can get thrown into the rumor whirlpool. Jay Z has basically been the face of the hip-hop’s division involving a secret plot to usher in a New World Order.
Hov has said in the past that he’s not down the Illuminati, and let’s not forget that he hangs out with Jay Electronica, who is anti-everything. There’s no way he’d be friends with Jay is he was in the Illuminati.
On the other hand, it also doesn’t help Mr.Carter’s case that he has lyrics that involve a “secret society” where all they ask “is trust.”
Jay’s not alone either. A few years back Nas made reference to the “man with horns” and the “dark force” that runs the Internet (Illuminati?), and just the other day Jeezy’s name got thrown into the mix for that Seen It All cover art.
Rap deaths tend to bring on “Illuminati sacrifice” rumors too, and in some cases the story is true.
