Talib Kweli Defends Jay-Z against the accusations.
"So Jay-Z Kanye and Rihianna are Illuminati now? Y'all need to step y'all conspiracy theories up. Somebody prove to me that Jay-Z and his cohorts are Illuminati. Besides images from videos and on Rocawear gear, specculatory internet stuff. I mean there are real forms of systematic oppression y'all could be making You Tube vids about. For real. So, if you ain't Christian or don't promote Christianity you Illuminati? I get it now. WWJd? I read Illuminati 666 Behold, A Pale Horse, New World Order, the Matrix series etc. In college. Never met Rhianna. Met Jay a number of times. I KNOW Kanye. I ain't quite talking out my ass." -Talib Kweli
Here is one of the videos that everyone went crazy about... Look up Free Masons. A lot of this and the other stuff said in the video made sense to me and everyone else.
I figured out the full accusation information yesterday before this I had just heard the basic information. Last night I really started believing everything in Hip Hop was a conspiracy. But, I believe it less now. I still have some questions but, now I can tell all my friends that its ok. They can listen to Jay-Z songs again.
