The Illuminati & Hip-Hop: A Conversation With Prodigy

The Illuminati & Hip-Hop: A Conversation With Prodigy


7:14

Hip-hop has a long-standing fascination with the Illuminati. The secret society, which was founded in the late 1700s, has been referenced on tracks from Jay Z, Kanye West, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and even pop artists like Madonna and Beyoncé over the years.

However, it was Mobb Deep’s Prodigy who originally started music’s Illuminati craze with his line on on LL Cool J’s 1995 “I Shot Ya (Remix).”

Genius reached out to learn more, so Prodigy invited us to the Illuminati Ball House at a secret estate one hour outside of New York City.

These celebrities would show the illuminati sign, cover one eye, make song about making deals with the devil, sell their soul. But once you ask them if they're in the illuminati, all of a sudden it's "yall haters corny with that illuminati mess" Girl bye

Listening to Prodigy's music makes me think that he was in fact trying to carry out the 1% murderous/genocide agenda. You can't talk about killing black folks for years as a career and look like anything other than they bitch – no matter how HARD & UGLY you try to look and be.

This makes me think that every time we see a black entertainer doing the pyramid maybe it isn't illuminati, maybe they know about the black scholars from Egypt and representing that. But idk

My eyes bugged out of my head when he let out so much information out about the illuminati and being straight forward about it. Surprised they didn't cut it or let it not be aired. And some wonders why they killed him

The Illuminati/The Rothschilds. They are called the Illuminati as an homage to Lucifer (satan), The light bearer. Progidy was a boss, but he was wrong about God and the devil being one. My beliefs (at one time) were firmly based in logic and science. I thought God and science were mutually exclusive, I was so very wrong. If you truly thirst for knowledge, read the bible. But, you must pray to God for understanding of what you read first.( So, obviously the Null hypothesis is out the window here ) For my fellow nerds, you know what I'm saying. Otherwise,… Read more »

illuminati is just one secret society out of many others. there are the Rosicrucians, opus dei, freemasonry, etc. what people don't realize is that these groups are all under a singular banner. and they're hidden in plain sight. its the Papacy. All Roads Lead to Rome. Don't get it twisted, Prodigy was a part of the occult music industry. Whether he wanted to get out of it, we don't know. Look into the works of eric jon phelps. He is a shill as well, but drops the most knowledge. If you want to read TRUE knowledge, you read the BIBLE.… Read more »
