Is Jay-Z Working for the NSA?

magna cartaWe all know that the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA) is monitoring social network and other communications activity, so New York Times music critic Jon Pareles takes issue with Jay-Z’s deal with Samsung to make his new album “Magna Carta … Holy Grail” available only if you share all sorts of personal information:

In “Jay’s Back ASAP,” a song on a 2010 mixtape called “Creative Control,” Jay-Z was indignant about phone surveillance and bribing witnesses: “They tap, them feds don’t play fair/They pay rats to say that they’re part of your operation,” he rapped. But to market his new album, “Magna Carta … Holy Grail,” he didn’t exactly stand on principle.

Samsung bought a million downloads of the album, for $5 each, to be given away on July 4 — five days before the album’s official release — through a mobile application, JAY Z Magna Carta, on certain Samsung models.

Beyonce And The Illuminati Superbowl Conspiracy

Continuing in the tradition of pop culture luminaries being accused of membership in the Illuminati, the usual suspects on the internet are having a field day with the supposed Illuminati hand signal made by Beyonce during her Superbowl halftime show. Digital Journal does a good job rounding up the fun:

Did Beyonce flash the Illuminati sign during the halftime show at Super Bowl? New World Order conspiracy theorists say she did and that she may have declared to the world that she and her husband are members of the super-secret cult.

Beyonce was captured flashing the Illuminati sign during her super-sexy Pepsi Halftime Show at Super Bowl XLVII at the Superdome in New Orleans just before the lights went out…

During her performance, Beyonce made the triangle sign that those who are into arcane symbols say is the Illuminati symbol. The Examiner writes: “For the record, the Illuminati sign has deep history in the world.

New World Order: Hip Hop’s Obsession With The Illuminati

Wu Tang Clan on StageThis one just won’t go away, will it? S’pose it must be true.

Revisited this time by HipHopDX:

“We want sanitary food / Planetary conquest / Thug peoples on some hard cold body shit / Get your shit together before the fuckin’ Illuminati hit…” – U-God, “Impossible”

As a young Hip Hop head, I vividly remember the first time I heard some of my favorite emcees begin to throw out theories about Freemasonry, Illuminati and a New World Order. It was a 1995 article on Wu-Tang Clan from the June/July issue of Vibe. In addition to the normal interaction between Clan members, the following exchange between Raekwon, U-God and Ghostface Killah caught my attention:

Raekwon: “Were just building and keepin’ shit together, you know? This is Born Power hour. The Clan got shit locked down for the next five years. Right now, we’re preparing for the Illuminati 2000, which is the Masons’ plan for New World Order.

Disinformation readers have long been tracking the illuminati agents Jay-Z and Kanye West (currently on a world-dominating tour together), as well as mind control puppet Lady Gaga, but now Jonah Weiner reveals for Slate that the pop conspiracy goes way deeper…

I’m not sure if Eminem has yet managed to escape the grasp of the Illuminati — the secret society of string pullers whose ranks he joined years ago in exchange for wealth, fame, and power — but I know he’s been trying very hard. Numerous people online tell me so. There is, for starters, a Yahoo Answers page that poses the question “Is Eminem trying to break free from the Illuminati?” and offers spirited excavation and analysis of the hidden anti-Illuminati messages Eminem embedded in his song “Not Afraid.” There is a four-page message-board thread titled “Is Eminem an Illuminati slave?” A YouTube video called “Eminem vs.

Why Jay-Z Uses Occult Imagery

Is Jay-Z an occultist? Mitch Horowitz, author of Occult America: White House Seances, Ouija Circles, Masons, and the Secret Mystic History of Our Nation, says “No” at BigThink.com:

He’s a genius who has a very shrewd eye for kind of oppositional imagery in our culture. And he uses these things and he understands the magnetism of these symbols. You know, symbols like the pentagram and the eye in the pyramid or astrological symbols, they do have a certain magnetic power. They have a pull on us. When people look at a crucifix or when people look at a Star of David, they feel something. There’s some kind of pull. It may just be a matter of conditioning, but the fact is, when you use the eye in the pyramid, it’s a magnetic symbol. It possesses something.

And I think when you’re using imagery that comes from the ancient world or that comes from Renaissance-era occultism, there is a little something going on there…
