Five Theories on Why Jay Z is in the Illuminati

Rapper Jay Z and his sister-in-law Solange Knowles got into a very public argument earlier this month on an elevator.  If you have not gotten a chance to watch the video of Solange physically attacking Beyonce’s hubby, the video is posted all over the net. So what was the reason for the outburst?  A statement released to the Associated Press did shed some light on the reason for the brawl.  The statements says, “There has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred.   At the end of the day, families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family.”

Though the statement alludes to the fact the two got into a dispute over family matters, many believe the reason for the argument was because of the Illuminati.  Who are the Illuminati?  They are a secret society that began in the 18th Century.  The group is speculated of being able to control world affairs and that they are practicing Freemasons and Satanists.  Members of the group have been known to flash the group’s triangle shape symbol with their hands. Jay Z is one of the celebrities that have been linked to this secret society.  Though he has never acknowledged being a part of the group, there is a lot of evidence circulating online that he could be.  Here are five reasons that can link the music mogul to the Illuminati.

1. The name of his child

Jay Z and Beyonce gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Blue Ivy in early 2012.  There is some hidden meaning to the name that came be attributed back to the Illuminati.  The International Business Times published an article shortly after the birth indicating and Eulb Yvi (Blue and Ivy spelled backwards) is the Latin term for Lucifer’s daughter.  Another claim suggested by the website says, “Blue stands for Born Living Under Evil and Ivy stands for Illuminati’s Very Youngest. Although it’s unclear as to why people think so, there are reports that it’s because Jay-Z is rumored to be a part of the Illuminati for some time now.”

2. He decided to go Vegan

In late 2013, Jay Z and Beyonce decided to go Vegan.  The rapper posted this information on his website, “Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way. On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan.  There’s something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day…It just feels right!”  Janet and Stewart Swerdlow, both with backgrounds in metaphysics assert that vegan teachings are Illuminati deceptions that are used to weaken the human body.  This seems an odd practice for someone who has a leather boxer clothing line and is an investor of The Spotted Pig restaurant. Also, three is a very important number to the Illuminati.

3. His clothing line is filled with Illuminati Symbols and Quotes

During a making of documentary for his video “Run to Town,” Jay Z was wearing a sweatshirt that contained the Aleister Crowley motto, “Do What Thou Will.”  An NPR article said, “Yes, that has very deep roots in modern occult culture,” Author Mitch Horowitz says. “The full expression is ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.’ That was one of the key maxims of the British occultist Aleister Crowley. So when Jay-Z appears in a hoodie with that phrase on it in public, that’s exactly what he’s referencing. Jay-Z’s Rocawear clothing line also often draws upon Masonic symbols: pentagrams, obelisks, pyramids, the all-seeing eye.” The Daily Mail wrote a piece that mirrors the NPR article, “His clothing line, Rocawear, is shot through with OTO imagery such as the ‘all seeing eye’ in a triangle, the ‘eye of Horus’ (an ancient Egyptian symbol frequently referenced in occult texts) and the head of Baphomet (the horned, androgynous idol of Western occultism).”

4. The constant flashing of the Illuminati symbol

Jay Z and countless other celebrities have often been photographed making a triangle out of their hands.  This is the most common of all the Illuminati symbols.  The pyramid shape with the eye is even found on the one dollar bill.  Jay Z throws the symbol up in many of his music videos and whenever he is out in public.  His greatest hits album even contains the image on the cover.  He will also have his fans make the gesture while attending his concerts.  While researching this article, almost every picture found of the rapper depicts him making the hand signal.

5. “Run this Town” Video and Album Cover

Like the making of documentary, the video for “Run this Town,” is full of Illuminati references.  In the video, everyone is caring torches.  This shows allegiance to Lucifer, who holds the eternal flame.  The torch is also found on the top of Baphomet’s head, the god of the Masons.  Everyone in the video is always covering their mouths to show that Amun is their god. The Illuminati believe it is prohibited to say his name aloud.  The album cover also has symbolism.  The Freemasonry classifies symbolism as, “the first communication of ideas among men. It is the outward sign of an inner concept—a word, an image, a gesture which tells, to the one who is of the inner circle, the story of a secret and often arbitrary association.”  Jay Z said in an interview the three lines on the cover are because of, “the original Three,” which are the three stripes used in old Egypt to represent the pagan gods: Amun, Re, and Ptah.  The gods would later be known as Osiris, Isis, and Horus.  This is where the “All Seeing Eye” image comes from.

There is no actual proof that the Illuminati exists or that Jay Z is a card caring member of the secret society.  The facts provided here do provide some proof that the rapper, Queen B, and many others in the music industry including Rhianna and Kanye West may be part of a secret world that only us regular schmoes can read about online.
