The Illuminati & Hip-Hop: A Conversation With Prodigy

April 5, 2019 By

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.

    Nipseys death brought up old thoughts on prodigys death. Supposively he died for health reasons but he did speak too much on what they don't want us to know the past couple years like many celeb rappers are finally stepping forward to expose the sick twisted evil involved

    Wasn’t Prodigy filming a documentary? I can’t find any information about it anywhere on the web but I swear to god he was. There was even an ad I came across recently about how it was still coming out but I can’t find shit? Very similar to what just happened to Nipsey if you ask me, he was filming a documentary about Dr. Sebi & how he actually had a cure for aids.. RIP to two legends who spoke the truth 🖤

    And now Nipsey. As a white man, I stand together with my black brothers who are real people. We’re all in this together, don’t let them divide and conquer.

    This is chess is he Illuminati? Or did the government (cia) say the about all are rich black people so that they can keep the rich black people separated from the poor and middle income black people?

    Who started the rumors that call are rich black people Illuminati? Are the people that call blacks with money Illuminati are they getting paid to call jay z Illuminati?

    I heard from people that being around Jayz and people that met Jay the he is a very generous man and that he supports black business and he show so much love to black people. He just don't brag about it. Only a lame brag About doing a good deed. A real nigga like myself I look out for you and never mention, got get your shine on fam!

    Plus if Illuminati a top secret how come we got motha fuckas that cant read and write talking about Illuminati. If I had top secret shit going on there ain't going to be no million plus people knowing bout my secret.

    If we look in history they always get us to beef with each other

    How can the green team fight a war with the pink team if the green team fighting each other. When malcolm x was beefing with Elijah Muhammad and dissing MLK the feds was able to slip in and kill malcolm x and make it look like black people killed him.

    Without are black millionaires and billionaires how can we stop these millionaires white people from buying are neighborhoods and kicking us out. Knocking down the house we grew up in. How can we start businesses in are goods and make good money without are millionaires and billionaires?

    He was killed its obvious ,since no one believed in youtubers thoeries ,celebrities started exposing them and end up dead example ,this was in early 2017 then he died in june 2017 after telling the truth ,same for j.f.k he spoke the truth and was killed days later even post malone said it in the breakfast club ,tupac was killed for being real to ,and also dont forget about Steve jacksons game card ,it was published in 1995 and it told what was going to happen to the world trade center and pentagon and the marathon bombing and! Donald trump being elected!
    If that dont wake u up than fuck u ur a sheeple and will be ignored by god in the end. Satans plan worked ao many athiest around the world but to the people that knows the truth and that Jesus is coming be strong and dont let people tell u wrong its satan making them try and turn u into a sinner . once u disbelieve u end up sinning.
    R.i.p prodigy your one of the greats to the people that are awaken and not sleeping like the rest of these fuckers ... Even if the truth is right there in thier faces!

    I used to be a New Ager, I bought into all of the lies. I thought I was God, that everything was made up of this one energy that was good and bad. Please don’t fall into the same traps I did, accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and you will be saved❤️

    I love how he talked about they stole and raped black culture I’ve been obsessed with this concept for 6 months now. Nobody talks about cultural appropriation anymore. And it’s horrible and sad. Middle class suburban white people have raped and stolen black culture completely. And I blame the music industry.... I’m guilty of this until recently, til I truly started to understand.

  46. REDoNECK
