I’m for the abolishment of all religions! In a utopian world we’d all just say we are “the children of God” and leave it at that. There would be no Jew, Christian or Muslim. I’d be fine with no president and no borders—a kind of heaven-on-earth. These are the things that the Illuminati supposedly want. If I told you I was already a member of the Illuminati I’d have to kill you, so, for the sake of this blog, I’m not a member and I’m only writing to
be flippant educate. Let’s get it!
I’ve been looking for the Illuminati headquarters for a long time!
In my travels I’ve been part of several organizations, which could’ve pointed me in the Illuminati direction. I’ve “crossed the burning sands” of fraternal brotherhood. I’ve met those of “this way” and stood shoulder to shoulder in knowledge with those that stand “Perpendicular to the Square.” I even wrote the European Economic Community (EEC) and my mail came back. I went to the United Nations and asked for an Illuminati application and they looked at me crazy. I broke into a meeting of The Bilderberg Group and they threw me out on my ass! I called The Trilateral Commission and asked to join the Illuminati and they gave me the “side-eye” over the phone! And then I took a job as a janitor at the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations and never eavesdropped on a conversation of substance. I even disguised my identity and feigned like I was a Rothschild, a Warburg, a Getty and a Rockefeller! No such luck. And then it hit me—the Illuminati were recruiting right in my face! At the goddamned Burger King on 79th Street! I wanna make it rain/reign with hamburgers and hexagrams! One man’s reign is another man’s rain.
I might be the only pro-Illuminati protagonist in hip-hop.
am a member of the wanna join the Illuminati—not because I’ve got a “God Complex” like the white man, but because I’ve got a bone to pick with organized religion, who, as far as I can tell, has been the worst criminal in the annals of human history—and they’re telling me that the Illuminati hates religion—sign me the f#*k up!
You Hip-Hop heads kill me! How dare you believe that rappers wanna be a part of the Illuminati, so much so, that they’d “sacrifice” their mother to be part of a secretive organization! In my best Mike Tyson voice, “This is totally ludacrisp!” How many of you would let your moms be killed so that you could become rich and famous? That’s what I thought—none of you, but you’re bound and determined to believe that there are people willing to stoop to such levels of decadence to be on that esoteric (hidden) knowledge tip.
Is there Freemasonry, Satanic and Illuminati imagery in music? Abso-freaking-lutely! So what? There is also misogynistic, homophobic, racist, nationalistic, Christian, vulgar, hateful, and murderous imagery in the music industry—one big pot of Louisiana gumbo. Have as much or little as you like!
Like really, what did the Illuminati ever do to you? Did they rape you? Enslave you? Annihilate your race? Persecute your spiritual beliefs? Steal money from you in the name of God? Oh! That’s right! They worship a fabled and mythological “devil” to hear you tell it. Look! All they wanna do is rule the world! I don’t get all the ado. Everything you say about the Illuminati is some hypothetical, theoretical, postulative, speculative and demagogic gum-flapping! You can’t put your finger on one concrete act of Illuminati complicity—not 9/11, not the music industry and certainly not world affairs. It is all hyperbole. It is all oratorical masturbation!
Can you say that about religion—your religion—whether it be Judaism and its claim to have massacred thousands upon thousands in the Bible? Or Christianity, which made women second-class citizens, demonized homosexuals, and sanctioned that “Peculiar Institution” (American slavery) and the annihilation of the Indigenous Population in the Western Hemisphere—so-called Indians? Or Islam, which wreaked havoc on Africa with its blood-lust for conquest all the way down to 9/11 and under-educates women and empowers tyrants? Even if everything you say about the Illuminati is true (which it ain’t!) it pales in comparison to the s#*t your religion has done! How dare you even fix your mouth and point the finger at the devil-worshiping Illuminati, meanwhile the s#*t you hold sacred (Christianity) has cum-stained lips from sucking the devil’s phallus! It never crosses your mind that not only is the devil-Illuminists working behind the scene, but actively running your religion!
I know what you’re thinking. It’s not the religion, it’s the bad people within religions! Meanwhile, your religion sings, “Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war!” Your religion teaches you that Jihad is prescribed to bring the last message to the world and those virgins in paradise are patiently awaiting your schlong. God is not a Jew, Christian or Muslim, yet we will kill a mofo over said religion in the name of God!
I just don’t f#*king get it! What “could be” weighs heavier than “what really is.” If Satan is really controlling anything in this world, it is religion, not secret organizations.
What do you really have against the Illuminati? Its mythological tie to Satanism? Is that it? Nowhere in the original Illuminati writings are there any talk of devil worship or Satanism. Those claims originated from the Catholic Church’s pogrom* against secret societies, even though they had their own Jesuit order doing secret s#*t. (*POGROM – an organized massacre of helpless people. Put it in your vocab.)
Most of you have not a clue what the original Illuminati believed in, so let me give you a crash course on Illuminati history. The Illuminati was founded by Adam Weishaupt (1748-1811), a Jew who was raised Catholic who converted to Protestantism. By profession he was a professor of Natural and Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria. He joined the Freemasons in 1774, but was unimpressed with its commitment to esoteric inquiry.
Weishaupt became a “freethinker” who wanted to “perfect” the world and the individual. Weishaupt believed that the world could be perfected if nations and religions were abolished. He was against people owning private property and marriage and he especially hated kings, presidents and monarchs. So, in 1776 he founded this “secret” group called “The Order of Perfectibilists” a.k.a. the Illuminati.
The Illuminati only lasted a mere ten years. The Catholic Church and many governments dropped the hammer on these secret organizations and away they went. But today, the Illuminati looms larger than life in the minds of many people, especially in Hip-Hop circles. We are steeped in mythology and misinformation regarding this group. YouTube is full of videos about the Illuminati and its aim at taking over the music industry and the world. We are spooked beyond all rationality! We say that the Illuminati has some of our favorite rap stars and singers under their spell—Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Diddy, Eminem, Tupac, etc.—that the Illuminati is into devil worship—that they want your soul and require blood sacrifice, murder and homosexual acts as part of their initiation rite. Not an iota of physical, tangible proof, yet we are willing to argue until the sun comes up that the world is under their spell and that one day the Illuminati will run the world.
Newsflash! Every member of the Illuminati are living, breathing (white) men that will die a death just like you and I.
There are numerous problems with this whole Illuminati thingy. First and above all—how arrogant and absurd it is to think that a white organization, which is steeped in “old money” and supposedly old power would want to recruit some rappers that happen to have a few pennies in the bank—some “nouveau riche” (newly rich) niggas that just got some money two days ago!
Secondly, if the motives of the Illuminati are already known, why are we so afraid that they will succeed, especially in light of the fact that most people are horrified by their beliefs? And thirdly, the Illuminati have been around for over 200 years and still haven’t managed to bring their aims to fruition. The best they can do is f#*k with some rap stars and put subliminal messages in records and videos? Is that it?
Do I believe that the Illuminati is real? Yes! Right about now you’re prolly confused as hell about what I think (as it should be!) In another blog I’ll take you inside what many are calling the Illuminati headquarters, Denver International Airport where the imagery gets no realer! But until then…
If we can believe what the Bible tells us in the Book of Revelations, the New World Order is coming. All these things must come to fruition to fulfill scripture, so why are we so crazy over this? A Christian should be rooting for the Illuminati—yea, carrying the banner of the Illuminati. Why? It’s supposed to usher in the Second Coming of Christ right? Without Judas there was no dying and rising Jesus. Without the Illuminati/New World Order there is no Second Dispensation. Relax. Man-up and accept what your book is teaching you and let the Rain Man do his thingy. For verily (truly) I say unto you, “A change is coming!” If the Illuminati is recruiting, sign me up!
