From The Grio

“They call me King Hov, copy?/Big balling is my hobby/ So much so they think I’m down with the Illuminati …” — Jay-Z, “Hot Tottie”

Like it or lump it, there’s this never-gonna-go-away public fascination and link between hip-hop music and the Illuminati.

But why exactly is that? Listen to any lyrics from a few top acts — and if you have that much time on your hands, maybe you’ve poured over hours of music video footage — and you might have concluded that there is this secret society occult-like connection between the music and the music’s biggest figures.

But guys like Mitch Horowitz laughs at the whole thing.

“The Illuminati was an organization that came out of Bavaria in 1776 and they were in existence for all of about eight years and the fact that people are making these connections today, in the 21st century, between this group that was formed near the start of the American revolution is really strange,” says Horowitz, an occult expert who also authored Occult America.

Horowitz is an occult expert, and says that this is really nothing much more than success breeding examination.

“Whenever people seem to get uncomfortable with individuals who are in positions of power they start to grouse about the existence of the Illuminati or free masonry or some kind of hidden hand,” he says.

“As if Jay-Z or Kanye West couldn’t be successful simply because they’re outstanding musicians and brilliant businessmen. Why not look there first? But here seems to be a segment of society that wants immediately to go toward something conspiratorial. That’s been a paranoid streak that’s been around in American politics for a long time.”

It’s actually almost impossible for the Jay-Z’s, Rihanna’s, Beyoncé’s or an artist who was most recently accused, Lady Gaga’s of the world to even be apart of such an occult. And any flirtation musically or even in interviews is just that — a cat-and-mouse type game played with conspiracy theorists. Do a quick search on a site like YouTube, and you’ll find hours of footage and videos and analysis pegging some of the biggest money-making and most influential artists with the organization.

    Question: Have any of the artist that have been accused of being apart of this devil cult come out and flat out deny their affiliation? That would seem like the easiest way to distance yourself from this type of affiliation.

      Uh, HELLO! Of course they are not going to deny it because they simply dont need to- They have millions of ignorant people backing them up!! A lot of people dont even know what the illuminati is & some people do but simply just dont care. Nowdays all you have to do is look pretty or be rich and people will defend just about anything you do or stand for, no matter how evil or stupid it is, which is why it makes perfect sense for the illuminati to target celebrities through which their beloved fallen angels can be worshipped. When you’re rich & famous, people bow down to you with little or no explanation.

    just curious tiffanie, do you listen to music artists who’ve been said to be affliated with the illuminati? and what real effect does their music have on us? i am someone who tries to be very aware of what i intake be it food, words, or music. i love a lot of music but i’ve shied away from some artists because of thier said illuminati affliation, but i do like the music.

  • African Mami

    He is the Illuminati himself!!!!! I am part of the segment mentioned that believes about the Illumaniti’s existence in music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JAY-Z is Horoscopus (sp?!) and Beyonce or Sasha (is Lady SACHETTE)……It ain’t a conspiracy it’s the truth ya’ll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Illuminati is not just focused in hip hop..there seems to be evidence that it is almost in everything presented in our society…On top of that, tell me why I keep hearing about a NEW WORLD ORDER all over the news now? Why all these politicians, bankers, people of power all over the world keep mentioning it? It’s creepy. If the New World Order agenda is real, we’ll know about it soon enough. God knows most won’t see it (or anything else really) coming because they are busy being kept entertained by tv, music, internet, etc…ah well…

    • Lucky

      Lulu, you’re absolutely right. There is *mounting* evidence that the Illuminati’s influence has permeated every facet of society. Some of the most prominent people in the world speak favorably of the New World Order.

      With the internet, we have the ability to thoroughly research the Illuminati. Before denying if such an organization exists, why not find out more about it?

    If only ppl would simply Spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and let God reveal stuff to ppl when and if they are ready for it, I don’t think this crap would have spread as much as it has. At the end of the day even if this crap were real then all these videos “informing” the public of their existence still plays into the devil’s hands because those videos are STILL getting those symbols out there. And for the people that are trying to tie this crap in with the Word of God, you’re really wasting your time cause if you really read the Bible you would already know how this whole shebang is gonna end anyway. “Though seeing they do not see; though hearing they do not hear or understand.” Matthew 13:13-14.

    In short, give this Illuma-crap a rest and do something meaningful.
