Kanye West Mentions the Illuminati in Remix of Rhianna's 'Diamonds' Song

The Illuminati is suspected of using the film and music industry as tools to control people through the use of subliminal messages. Popular celebrities are allegedly recruited to promote their agenda with the music, performances, and films they produce. Kanye West is a successful musician, who has been rapping, entertaining, and stirring controversy since 1996. He's thought to have ties with the Illuminati even though he once denied knowing what it stood for. It's hard to believe that the highly articulate West has no clue what the Illuminati represents. Now, West freely references the secret society in the remix for one of fellow Roc-a-Fella artists, Rhianna's latest song 'Diamonds.'
The start of Rihanna's "Diamonds" remix features West's voice, as he raps: "What is (sic) you talking man that ain't important. Illuminati? High Society? We in this party and nobody invited me." The remaining lyrics in his verse go onto to boast about his popularity, talent, style, and loyalty to his "music family." However, his references to the Illuminati rubbed some listeners the wrong way â€“ many of which felt the rapper spoke too much about the secret organization linked to pushing a New World Order.
Why People Think Kanye West is Associated with the Illuminati?
Beyond the controversy, West has persevered â€“ winning a total of 18 Grammy Awards as of 2012 â€“ making him one of the most awarded artists to date. This has led some to suspect the artist has 'sold his soul to the Devil (or Illuminati).' Besides incorporating references to the Illuminati and Freemasonry in his lyrics, there are more reasons why people believe Kanye West's success is connected to the secret organization, such as:
- West first gained recognition in the music world as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records and worked on material for Jay-Z (another suspected puppet of the Illuminati). He has since collaborated with the artist on several prosperous projects.
- West includes a lot of ancient Egyptian symbols that are associated with the Devil and the Illuminati, including the 'all-seeing eye' (better known as the 'eye of Horus') and the pyramid (the 'Roc' sign used to signify Roc-a-fella Records).
- In a Jay-Z and Kanye West song collaboration from their 'Watch the Throne' release, the music video for 'XXXX in Paris' is riddled with Illuminati and Freemason symbolism, such as the Freemason symbol itself, a tribute paid to Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man (who was also thought to have belonged to a secret society), and an image of Baphomet â€“ a pagan deity associated with Satanism and occultism. The phrase 'as above, so below' is also representative of Baphomet.
- In West's 'Power' music video, a collection of telling symbols and references appear. Those who believe the musician pays homage to the Illuminati in his work will highlight his use of the infinite row of Ionic columns that he stands between â€“ symbolic of the Masonic views on 'wisdom.' Other instances include the 'illuminating' eyes of West and the large chain decorated with Horusâ€™ head as a pendant.
- West appears to mock religion and Jesus in a handful of his songs, performances, and photo shoots. In January of 2006, West appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in the image of Jesus while wearing a crown of thorns.
