Is Jay Z Illuminati? A good chunk of the folks who comment on our page and social media seem think so.
The idea of a shadowy cabal that runs the world is particularly prevalent in Hip Hop circles, for whatever reason. Animal New York decided to ask Questlove, Jay Z's buddy, what he thought of all the rumors that Hov is some kind of Illuminati luminary. This is what he has to say:
"That folklore has always been sort of prevalent in all of music. I guess it’s unprecedented how most people think Jay Z is the Illuminati leader." As the crowd chuckled, he continued. "And often times, even though I don’t believe it, I've been in a few situations in which I feel uncomfortable with how comfortable they are being in front of me. Like, we’re friends and so sometimes I feel like 'oh I shouldn't have seen that’ and now they’re going to kill me," laughs Questlove.Bottom line, Quest's brain says no, but there's something else saying maybe.
