Illuminati is no joke. Just ask St. Louis rapper Unc 607, who claims he sacrificed his son to get out of it.
On the other hand, the Illuminati is also probably mostly made up.
JAY-Z is rumored to be a bigwig in the secret society.
Memphis Bleek, who may be most famous for his association with Hov, says that's cap on a stick.
According to Bleek, why would JAY be in the Illuminati if he wasn't?
“That killed me with the Hov drunk they Illuminati. Why the f*ck I ain’t drink then? Huh? I just went to the party and let everybody get Illuminati wasted and I abstain, say said, ‘Yo, I’m cool. Tonight’s the night I’m on my N.O.R.E. sh*t 36 hours clean. My birthday’s coming.’
“F*ck outta here. I’d been in there vampire from Brooklyn, n*gga. You think Eddie had it? Me, n*gga. F*ck outta here with that. It’s called the IllumiGrinding, n*gga."
Is Memphis right to point out that hard work, not sinister connections, makes people successful?
