There’s plenty to fear. Though the Illuminati might be a cultural myth, it clearly exists as a concept for many rappers. Check out how the Illuminati has been influencing rap music for decades with the HypeFresh playlist.
1. Love is All That Matters
“Dirty mind and tap water consumin’ yo’ body!” Public Enemy is the Illuminati’s original nemesis. They were never too afraid to belt the truth.
2. Let the Truth be Known
Immortal Technique thinks there’s more behind the true story of September 11, 2001. It came out in 2003 and yet he mentions many conspiracies that still plague American society to this day. It makes sense considering the thesis of the song, “The New World Order was born on September 11th!”
3. Humble Brag
At this point, many rappers have referenced the Illuminati. It isn’t only the proudest or even the loudest. Childish Gambino is a self-proclaimed modern-day blerd. That explains his cryptically subtle nod, “Sick Boi forever, that Suburban Illuminati!”
4. My Brain Left
“You know, I graduated summa cum laude! That’s why they thinkin’ I’m Illuminati!” Many rappers have been accused of being members of the Illuminati. It begs the question that if the Illuminati is in fact real, what does the organization actually stand for?
5. What Kind of Love is Your Love?
“Illuminati, I’m not!” Rhapsody asserts who she stands by. That is of course Africa, one love, and making people feel good.
6. I’ma Handle Mine
“I don’t gotta join Illuminati just to get a new Bugatti!” For the truly pure of heart, name-dropping the Illuminati merely presents a juxtaposition. Wale and his crew illustrate this concept.
7. Your Ship Sinking
“Fear Illuminatis!” Rather than a reflection of sentiments, this track is a freestyle. According to Genius, “this is Lupe’s freestyle over the beat to Rick Ross’s “BMF (Blowin’ Money Fast)”.
8. Jay-Z, D’evil Can You Save Me?
Many claim Jay-Z is a member of The Illuminati. What is The Illuminati anyway? If it is the system set up to keep all minorities miserable, doesn’t Jay-Z use his voice to speak up against the system?
