Illuminati’s Recruiting? Sign Me Up!

Illuminati’s Recruiting? Sign Me Up!

By Khalil Amani


I’m for the abolishment of all (organized) religions! In a utopian world, we'd all just say that we are the "Children of God" and leave it at that. There would be no Jew, Christian or Muslim. I’d be fine with no president and no borders—a kind of heaven-on-earth. These are the things that the Illuminati supposedly want. If I told you I was already a member of the Illuminati I’d have to kill you, so, for the sake of this blog, I’m not a member of the Illuminati and I’m only writing to be flippant educate. Let’s get it!


I’ve been looking for the Illuminati headquarters for a long time! In my travels, I’ve been part of several organizations, which could’ve pointed me in the direction of the Illuminati. I’ve, “Crossed the burning sands” of fraternal brotherhood. (Shout-out to Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity, Inc.!) I’ve met those of “This Way” (The Christian Brotherhood) and stood shoulder to shoulder in knowledge with those that stand, “Perpendicular to the Square.” (Freemasonry) I wrote the EEC and my mail came back. I went to the United Nations and asked for an Illuminati application and they looked at me crazy. I broke into a meeting of the Bilderberg Group and they threw me out on my ass! I called the Trilateral Commission and asked to join the Illuminati and they gave me the “side-eye” over the phone! I took a job as a janitor at the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations and never once eavesdropped on a conversation of substance. I even disguised my identity and feigned like I was a Rothschild, a Warburg, a Getty and a Rockefeller! No such luck. And then it hit me—the Illuminati were recruiting right in my face! At the goddamned Burger King on 79th Street! I wanna make it rain/reign with hamburgers and hexagrams! One man’s reign is another man’s rain. I'm sounding all cryptic and shit! Keep listening!


I might be the only pro-Illuminati protagonist in hip-hop and on Social Media!


But really—I am a member of the wanna join the Illuminati—not because I’ve got a “God Complex” like the white man, but because I’ve got a bone to pick with organized religion, who, as far as I can tell, has been the worst criminal in the annals of human history—and they’re telling me that the Illuminati hates religion? Yeah—sign me the fuck up!


You hip-hop Negroes kill me! How dare you believe that rappers wanna be a part of the Illuminati, so much so, that they’d “sacrifice” their mother (as we've accused Kanye West) or take a dick up the ass (as we've accused Jay-Z) or have their baby mama sacrificed (as we've accused P Diddy)! In my best Mike Tyson voice, “This is totally ludacrisp!" How many of you would let your moms be killed so that you could become rich and famous? How many of you would let your children become motherless just to join an organization? Raise your fuckin' hand! That’s what I thought—none of you, but you’re bound and determined to believe that there are people willing to stoop to such levels of decadence to be on that fame, fortune and esoteric (hidden) knowledge tip. You think that famous and wealthy people's morality is less than yours. Like really! Puff Daddy lands in Forbes magazine every year as one of the riches rappers/entertainers in the world, damn near at a billion dollars, so why the fuck would his baby mama, Kim Porter need to be sacrificed? Why now? The nigga's made it! What's the point? I really hate some of you niggas' rationale and silliness! Again, who do you know that would sacrifice a loved one to become rich and famous? I'll answer for you! You don't know nann (no) person that would do some stupid shit like that!


Is there Freemasonry and Illuminati imagery in music? Abso-fucking-lutely! So what? There is also misogynistic, homophobic, racist, nationalistic, Christian, vulgar, hateful, and murderous imagery in the music industry—one big pot of Louisiana gumbo. Have as much or little as you like!



What did the Illuminati ever do to you? Did they rape you? Enslave you? Annihilate your race? Did they make your mama buy that fucked-up wig she wears? Did the Illuminati make your daddy become a crack-head and a dead-beat dad? Did the Illuminati persecute your spiritual beliefs? Steal money from you in the name of Gawd? Oh! That’s right! You don't like the Illuminati because they worship a fabled and mythological “devil” to hear you tell it. Look! All the Illuminati wants do is rule the world! I don’t get what all the ado is about! The Jews/Israelites claim that they are gonna rule the world one day! Right? They claim to be "God's Chosen People," right? The Muslims wanna see Islam rule the world, right? They want Sharia Law to be the law of the world! The Christians and their savior, Jesus Christ want to rule the world---for 1,000 years, according to the Book of Revelations! In fact, their prophet, Mr. Christ aka Yahshua ben Yosef (Jesus, the son of Joseph) is quoted as having said, "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign [RULE] over them, bring them hither [heah], and slay [kill] them before me!" (Luke 19:27) Damn! Mr. Jesus! That's some cold-hearted shit! Talk about blood-lust for power!

Yes! Everybody wants a piece of the rulership pie, but we're mad at the Illuminati for wanting in on the fun. Does it really matter whether an organization headed by a mythical devil or a mythical messiah rules over people? We claim that the devil is a murderer, but brother Jesus just spit that murder talk---and meant it! 

Everything you say about the Illuminati is some hypothetical, theoretical, postulative, speculative and demagogic gum-flapping! You can’t put your finger on one concrete act of Illuminati complicity—not 9/11, not the music industry and certainly not world affairs. It is all hyperbole! It is all oratorical masturbation! Open up any history book of your choosing and show me one major act in world history that historians have linked to the Illuminati! One act! I said, show me one fucking act by the illuminati that changed the course of human history! Cite me one historian who attaches the worst travesties against humans to the Illuminati. I'll wait.

The Illuminati has never hurt, enslaved and/or murdered masses of people! 

Can you say that about religion—your religion—whether it be Judaism and its claim to have massacred thousands upon thousands in the Bible? Or Christianity, which made women second-class citizens, demonized homosexuals, and sanctioned American slavery and the annihilation of the Indigenous Population in the Western Hemisphere—so-called Indians? (Can you say, "Bartolome' de las Casa?) Or Islam, which wreaked havoc on Africa with its bloodlust for conquest---"Accept Islam or the sword!" "campaigns" and the raping and razing of Africa as the first slave traders and the under-education of women while empowering tyrants----all the way down to 9/11? Even if everything you say about the Illuminati is true (which it ain’t!), it pales in comparison to the shit that your religion has done! All of your religions have bloodstained hands and have raped and razed and pillaged and robed and enslaved and murdered Africans and AFRICA! In the words of Dr. John Henrik Clarke, when it comes to world religions and Africans/African-Americans, "You have no friends!"

How dare you even fix your mouf and pucker up your lips and point the finger at the mythological devil-worshipping Illuminati, meanwhile the shit that you hold so sacred (the Israelite way, Christianity & Islam) has cum-stained lips from sucking the phallus (dick) of organized, institutionalized religion! It never crosses your mind that not only is the devil-Illuminatists working behind the scene, but probably actively running your religion! Does not the Bible say, "The devil, which deceiveth the whole world?" (Revelations 12:9)


I just don’t fucking get it! What “could be” weighs heavier than “what really is.” If Satan is really controlling anything in this world, it is religion, not secret organizations! How do you account for a gazillion denominations, sects, cults, which all claim to believe in God? If God is truly "not the author of confusion" (I Corinthians 14:33), than it is a foregone conclusion that all religion is being ran by a power other than God, simply because religion is CONFUSING! 


What do you really have against the Illuminati? Its mythological tie to Satanism? Is that it? Nowhere in the original Illuminati writings are there any talk of devil worship or Satanism. Those claims originated from the Catholic Church’s *pogrom against secret societies, even though they had their own Jesuit order doing secret shit. (A “POGROM” is an organized massacre of helpless people. Put it in your vocab. i.e. The Transatlantic Slave Trade. That was a POGROM!}


Most of you have not a clue what the original Illuminati believed in, so let me give you a crash course on Illuminati history. The Illuminati was founded by Adam Weishaupt (1748-1811), a Jew who was raised Catholic who converted to Protestantism. By profession, he was a professor of Natural and Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria. He joined the Freemasons in 1774, but was unimpressed with its commitment to esoteric inquiry.


Weishaupt became a “freethinker” who wanted to “perfect” the world and the individual. Weishaupt believed that the world could be perfected if nations and religions were abolished. He was against people owning private property and marriage and he especially hated kings, presidents and monarchs. So, in 1776 he founded this “secret” group called, “The Order of Perfectibilists”a.k.a. the Illuminati.


The Illuminati only lasted a mere ten years. The Catholic Church and many governments dropped the hammer on these secret organizations and away they went. But today, the Illuminati looms larger than life in the minds of many people, especially in hip-hop circles. We are steeped in mythology and misinformation regarding this group. YouTube is full of videos about the Illuminati and its aim at taking over the music industry and the world. We are spooked beyond all rationality! We say that the Illuminati has some of our favorite rap stars and singers under their spell—Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Diddy, Eminem, Tupac, etc.—that the Illuminati is into devil worship—that they want your soul and require blood sacrifice, murder and homosexual acts as part of their initiation rite. Not an iota of physical, tangible proof, yet we are willing to argue until the sun comes up that the world is under their spell and that one day the Illuminati will run the world.

Newsflash! Every member of the Illuminati are living, breathing (white) men that will die a death just like you and I.


There are numerous problems with this whole Illuminati thingy. First and above all—how arrogant and absurd it is to think that a white organization, which is steeped in “old money” and supposedly old power would want to recruit some rappers that happen to have a few coins in the bank—some “nouveau riche” (newly rich) niggas that just got some money two days ago!


Secondly, if the motives of the Illuminati are already known, why are we so afraid that they will succeed, especially in light of the fact that most people are horrified by their beliefs? And thirdly, the Illuminati have been around for over 200 years and still haven’t managed to bring their aims to fruition. The best they can do is fuck with some rap stars and put subliminal messages in records and videos? Is that it?

Face it! Most of what you know about secret societies and the Illuminati IS NOT from reading books! Tell the truth! Your favorite YouTuber spoon-fed you your ideas about the illuminati, didn't they? LOL.

If we can believe what the Bible tells us in the Book of Revelations, the New World Order is coming. All these things must come to fruition to fulfill scripture, so why are we so crazy over this? A Christian should be rooting for the Illuminati—yea, carrying the banner of the Illuminati. Why? It’s supposed to usher in the Second Coming of Christ right? Without Judas there was no dying and rising Jesus. Without the Illuminati/New World Order there is no Second Dispensation. Relax. Man-up and accept what your book is trying teaching you and let the "Rain Man" do his thingy. If the Illuminati is recruiting, sign me the fuck up!

What do you know about a rare book like Albert Pike's 861 page, "Moral's & Dogma," considered the "Bible" of Freemasonry? I own this stuff!

It seems apparent that even without a full understanding of what the illuminati is, notions of rape, murder and plot to takeover the music industry seems stupid. If indeed that is their agenda, then why haven't you heard of these things existing in other music genres? I will tell you why, Urban Folklore! Black people believe any and everything that is white, and repeated enough times. (Slavery). Read a book. And the historical accounts of free masonry and hidden knowledge all contributes to these cockamamie ideals circulating in hip-hop. Also, why so all of a sudden (present)? Im sure back in the 60's and 70s with the music that inspired artist such as Bob Dylan, Curtis Mayfield, and John Lennon would have been prefect opportunity for illuminati to impose their message, yet you didnt hear of that kinda stuff back then. If you belong to the illuminati and say you love hip-hop, its culture and people, stop exploiting that shit for the sake of album sales and just be a dedicated member and keep the "knowledge" to yourself please.
