Talk of rappers being in the Illuminati has been around forever.
Some, like OMB Peezy, denied being in the secret society, while others like Doja Cat claimed to be a member.
One of the latest rappers to be accused of being in the Illuminati is Soulja Boy, who flat out denied it.
"When I first got in the rap game, a lot of people was like, 'Soulja Boy an Illuminati,'" he said on Instagram Live. "'Soulja Boy joined the Illuminati, that’s how he got his money. That’s how he got famous, that’s how he got rich.' But guess what? All I ever did was pray to God and stayed in the studio and stayed down until I made it, until I got on. They always gon’ try to discredit you for anything you do."
"If I was like a devil ass artist that worship the devil and sh*t, I’d be straight," he continued. "It wouldn’t be no blogs lying on my name, it wouldn’t be no rappers beefing with me ... But since I f*ck with God, I’ma go through more sh*t than the average person. You gon’ see the media lying on my name. That’s the evil side right there, attacking me, ’cause they know I’m independent."
