Lately, I have been taking notice of all the conspiracy theories spoken about in the music industry. Upon looking into it a little bit more, I found that it has been done before in music history with almost any artist that is shall we say, “blowing up” or gaining large popularity rather quickly.
For example, Vinnie Paz’s song “End of Days” in which he states:
“Everybody enslaved, only some are aware
That the government releasing poison in the air
That’s the reason I collect so many guns in my lair
I ain’t never caught slipping, never underprepared
Yeah, The Shaitan army, they just break it proudly
George Bush the grandson of Aleister Crowley
They want you to believe the lie that the enemy Saudi
The enemy ain’t Saudi, the enemy around me
There’s fluoride in the water but nobody know that
It’s also a prominent ingredient in Prozac (For real?)
How could any government bestow that?
A proud people who believe in political throwback
That’s not all that I’m here to present you
I know about the black pope in Solomon’s Temple
Yeah, about the Vatican assassins and how they will get you
And how they cloned Barack Hussein Obama in a test tube
Whoever built the pyramids had knowledge of electrical power
And you know that that’s the information that they suppress and devour
Who you think the motherfuckers that crashed in the tower?
Who you think that made it turn into ash in an hour?
The same ones that invaded Jerome
The ones that never told you about the skeletons on the moon
Yeah, the ones that poison all the food you consume
The ones that never told you about Mount Vesuvius Tomb
The Bird Flu is a lie, the Swine Flu is a lie
Why would that even come as a surprise?
Yeah, the Polio vaccine made you die
It caused cancer and it cost a lot of people their lives
Do y’all know about Bohemian Grove?
How the world leader sacrificing children in robes?
Lucifer is God in the public school system
I suggest you open up your ears and you listen
The greatest hypnotist on the planet Earth is an oblong box in the corner in the room.
It is constantly telling us what to believe is real. If you can persuade people that
what they see with their eyes is what there is to see you’ve got them. Because they’ll
laugh in your face of an explanation then which portrays the big picture of what’s happening… and they have.”
In “End of Days” there are vocal samples from David Icke, an English writer and public speaker, best known for his views on what he calls “who and what is really controlling the world.” Describing himself as the most controversial speaker in the world, he is the author of 19 books and has attracted a global following that cuts across the political spectrum. His 533-page The Biggest Secret (1999) has been called “the Rosetta Stone for conspiracy junkies.” They are as follows:
“The greatest form of control is where you think you’re free when you’re being fundamentally manipulated and dictated to. One form of dictatorship is being in a prison cell and you can see the bars and touch them. The other one is sitting in a prison cell but you can’t see the bars but you think you’re free.”
“What the human race is suffering from is mass hypnosis. We are being hypnotized by people like this: newsreaders, politicians, teachers, lecturers. We are in a country and in a world that is being run by unbelievably sick people. The chasm between what we’re told is going on and what is really going on is absolutely enormous.”
Non-Phixon’s ‘The C.I.A.’s Trying to Kill Me’ is also quite the example of some music industry conspiracies from the view point of MC’s Ill Bill (Heavy Metal Kings, La Coka Nostra), Sabac Red, Goretex, DJ Eclipse (3rd Base, Rock Steady Crew), and MC Search (3rd Base). Here are those view points, or ‘theories’:
NON PHIXION – THE C.I.A. IS TRYING TO KILL ME LYRICS
Non-Phixion be the real hip hop
We make you wanna kill cops
Cats hatin, ’cause they know I finga girls twats
You feel helpless, real jealous, we killed Elvis
I shot Reagan with the help of the secret service
Super double agent, shoot your mother with my brothers favorite
12 gauge waving at your brain, strange universe, I’m too famous
Leaving the muder scene blameless, drug entertainment
Thugs that’ll blaze with laser guns
Saying what I wrote, you feel what I feel
They see the same picture
We made a biscuit do the talk and it became richer
Nobody gets a record deal, you gotta take that shit
Treat the record label like a slut, then rape that bitch
I keep it simple for these stupid cats
Claiming you the facts, but in reality, you a trap
Jesus Christ was a gangsta rapper
They killed him then he came back and made a platinum album
The path that travels like the dragon shadow
Invisible to CIA camera angles
They got a file on every rap group
They killed the last man that had proof
They after me for information that I have too
I’m paranoid, tell me what the fuck they asked you
You fuck around with me and Im’a have to blast you
The CIA tryna kill me, we bad news
Get the fuck up out my way when I pass through
I’m paranoid, tell me what the fuck they asked you
You fuck around with me and Im’a have to blast you
The CIA tryna kill me, we bad news
Fuck around with Non-Phixion thats a bad move
Symbolisms, socialism’s live life lead, learn
Struggle war whole drug fiends, the white house burn
Sex, pain, fear, freedom love, young guns be shootin
Genocide, revolution, lost souls, prostitutin
Military confrontation, safe sex, and masturbation
Peace to all the homeless people livin in the train station
Project war, spill the one verse four
Lock the door, burn the disc now everybody hit the mutha fuckin floor
They bustin out a blunt for this shit
I’m number six on they list next to kiss and all these kids
Cause I run wit Asians, Latinos and Black fists
5 percent is caucasians thugs who live communist
They broke in my house, planted bugs in ma lamps and my couch
They after me, what? Let me find out
I’m not havin it, My rap attract the service like a magnet
The bastards gettin under like crowded parties wit no laminents
If Im’a die, Im’a die bustin and strugglin
I’m hostile for the people, fuck them devils and corruptions
Nuttin for nuttin, and if somehow they do
They ID me due to my tattoo
Projects for straight jackets, electric shock states
A rock could fall out, traded for royalty rates
Get ya drink on, we build the bombs, spit in ya face
Smart to change cars like cruise the block I do it for chase
Nice spite work, the fancy knife work
Hit to Chirst Non-Phixion striking prison Ice shirts
I paid dues, nothin to lose, Steady bustin off weapons In 2’s
When I come home I be smellin shit and furnitures moved
Eat a slug, take some weight off, I lit it so real
I do this for the dead, rest in peace I’m holdin you near
Makin on time, 12 years we on tour we blow you back off
Support cats that jack the car seats and tear ya scalp off
Soldiers of merits, inherited for way back
Cyanide in bullets, so I should follow my stats
We too futuristic, thugs to robots, experiments
Four point restraint and my hyper cube on medicines
Pain Veterans, crippling souls
Its gettin bigger now the information runnin the globe
Its just my mechanics, either wit a gat or xanax
Why spread panic until the sabbath?
Here some more of the current conspiracy theories being talked about online in ‘The Wonderful, Magical World of Music’:
Tool – Faaip De Oiad
This is the secret track off the album ‘Lateralus’. There was a famous phone call into an American radio talk show, where a hysterical guy who sounded as though he was scared for his life phoned in, saying he’d been working at Area 51. He mentioned that he couldn’t be long as ‘they’ were going to triangulate on his position soon, and was trying to say some stuff about the aliens being here and that they had infiltrated the government and military, and were “extra-dimensional beings”.
The freakiest thing about it is that during the phone call, the whole radio station went down and completely lost transmission for around 20 seconds, until their backup systems started running. When they were back on the air, the caller was gone.
Jimi Hendrix – Star Spangled Banner
Not sure how much this one counts as a conspiracy song, but this is an instrumental that Jimi Hendrix did of the American National Anthem around the time of the Vietnam War, where sonically, he just rips it to shreds. Some people mention that he brings in sounds to imitate machine guns and bombs dropping, but the best thing I remember hearing one commentator say, is how you could almost see the American flag burning and in tatters by the end of that tune.
Nirvana – Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle
While the track itself isn’t really full of loads of conspiracy content, it was the title of this song that led Lyndsey in the band to look up the whole story about Frances Farmer. So we’re passing it on. Frances Farmer was an outspoken, left-wing, politically active movie star in the 1930’s from Seattle. Her story is pretty grim, and surprisingly hard to uncover. She went from being an A-list movie star to being virtually untraceable following a series of weird and horrific events, surrounded by conspiracies. As well as this song, Kurt Cobain also named his daughter after her, perhaps feeling a connection with another public figure from Seattle that was hounded and ultimately ruined. There’s an out of print book which you can find online called ‘Shadowlands’, which is her biography.
Dead Kennedys & The Melvin’s – California Über Alles
Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys got together with the Melvin’s to do a 2004 version of their classic tune California Über Alles. They played a live version at the Fury Fest which is just awesome viewing, where Jello takes the lyrics and directly relates them to Arnold Schwarzenegger after his rise to becoming the Governor of California. The original song is awesome anyway, but this is just pure gold.
Beyoncé and Jay Z are establishing a new world order
Professor Griff of hip-hop crew Public Enemy alleged that Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Diddy and more are members of the Illuminati, a secret Masonic organization that controls world affairs and events to establish a New World Order.
Jim Morrison is alive
Jim Morrison died of suspicious circumstances in the bath of his Parisian apartment found by his girlfriend Pam Courson. Some people believe that Jim Morrison faked his own death, and according to a rodeo photographer is currently living in Oregon working on a ranch.
Morrissey foretold death of Princess Diana
The Smiths album The Queen Is Dead features a song ‘There Is a Light That Never Goes Out’, that mentions death and a darkened underpass. The 13th word on side 1 is “Arches” and the 13th word on side 2 is “smash”, Princess Diana died when her car hit the 13th arch of the Alma Tunnel.
Paul McCartney Is Dead
A rumor of Paul McCartney’s death started after a car crash in 1967, however it wasn’t until 1969 when a group of Iowa students noted that if you listened to ‘Revolution 9’ backwards you heard the message “turn me on, dead man”. Similarly, the front cover of Abbey Road is often cited as a funeral procession, with a barefooted Paul as the dead man.
Stairway to Heaven played backwards is Satanic
Back masking was first used by the Beatles, and has been used by plenty of artists for different reasons. However, in the eighties, Christian groups in America started crying foul at supposed satanic messages in reverse in rock and roll songs. Led Zeppelin were accused of having a back masking messaging pertaining to “my sweet Satan”, whilst the message “it’s fun to smoke marijuana” can be found in Queen’s ‘Another One Bites The Dust.’ In reverse.
Elvis is alive.
Plenty of people have voiced the idea that Presley’s death could have been a hoax to afford the singer a lifetime of freedom from the public eye. But it wasn’t until a book by Gail Brewer Giorgio entitled Is Elvis Alive was published in 1988 that the theory gained traction, even spawning the elvis-is-alive.com website. One theory is that President Nixon appointed him an undercover DEA agent to fight drug use. Thank you very much
Robert Johnson sold his soul to the Devil.
It’s alleged that as a young man growing up in Mississippi, Johnson was instructed to go to a local plantation after midnight. There, Johnson, who had always wanted to be a successful Blues musician, was greeted by the Devil. The Devil played a few songs on Johnson’ guitar then promptly returned it. When Johnson played the guitar immediately after, he had a mastery of the instrument.
Elliott Smith was murdered
Since the singer’s death in 2003, there have been countless murder allegations. While officially ruled a suicide, the death is considered suspicious as reports say Smith stabbed himself in the chest and that his own name was spelt incorrectly in his suicide note.
Dr. Dre is responsible for Burning Man.
A while ago rumors started circulating that Dr. Dre was the man behind the epic (but creepy) Burning Man festival. Apparently on a trip to Nevada, Dre saw means to “make some loot off of these fools.”
Dark Side of the Rainbow.
In 1995, no doubt in a hazy college dorm room, it was discovered that there’s a great synchronicity between Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and The 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. That is, if you play the album as an alternate soundtrack to the film, they’re perfectly synchronized. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Jim Corr, guitarist with the Irish soft-rock band the Corrs, has taken to the web on his site jimcorr.com and his Twitter feed – @jimcorrsays updating followers on things with such bulletins as “Newscaster alludes to Satanic government”, “Severe child abuse goes to the top of the establishment”, and “32 signs entire world being transformed into a futuristic big brother prison grid”.
DMX (He struggles a lot it seems like he isn’t because of his lyrics but he spits the truth a lot just watch his movie angel or his show soul of a man)
Rage against the machine
Nirvana (The illuminati killed him just listen to the bogus story it’s obvious plus look at his shirt on his last cd insert it’s a mirrored image that says 9-11 and the hidden song on the cd played backwards says something against them)
Canibus (I’m not so sure about but he still sends a good message even though I believe its quoted that he said he’s a mason)
Mos Def (it’s a possibility but most not likely)
Wu-Tang Clan (ol Dirty bastard said the government was out to assassinate him and they did plus they always spoke against the NWO)
White Michael Jackson (A few songs only he couldn’t do much because he ended up drug overdosing if he did)
Tay G. (really good)
Sick Since (I just like the song Rip the reptilian (real good stuff) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cNpjRjNrgU)
Naughty by Nature (never with them and good music anyone remember this tune Grab your shotties kill the illuminati)
Lyrics from Lupe Fiasco’s “BMF Freestyle”
Nigga, wake up, don’t join the Army
Kill your own peoples, but fear Illuminati’s
And they ain’t even real, or are they?
But you wouldn’t even know, because you partay
Too fucking much, if you start to doubt
They already in your mind and comin’ out yo’ mouth
It’s not a trick, nigga, it’s a trap
Survival of the fit, is what they aimin’ at
And niggas ain’t fit (nope), fat as hell (yep)
Fat in mind (yep), body fat as well
Who use most the drugs? Americans!
What’s in Afghanistan? Heroin!
You think that’s by mistake? They can stop that?
Don’t think you safe though, because you not black
Greed is colorblind, so I’m colorblind
They gon’ fuck with yours soon as they done with mine
They say I try too hard, verses overwhelm
I learned most of this, from niggas sittin’ in jail
Where you think I’m from? From the streets, nigga
Triple OGs, told me to teach, nigga
And that ain’t made up, that’s a fact
They say that gangsta shit, is the shit I rap
Along with the above mentioned, I located a list of Anti-Illuminati and Pro-Illuminati artists. They are as follows:
DMX Jim Corr-The Corrs Mos Def
Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) Matt Bellamy-Muse Rise Against
Lecrae M.I.A. Lupe Fiasco
2Pac Professor Griff-Public Enemy John Legend
Nas Wu Tang Clan System of a Down
B.o.B Canibus Rage Against the Machine
Michael Jackson Robert Plant Incubus
Immortal Technique Mick Fleetwood KORN
Judge D Slaine William Cooper
Bob Marley Katt Williams Ill Bill
Gamma Ray Vinnie Paz Mad Child-Swollen Members
David Icke Sabac Red DJ Eclipse
MC Search Goretex
Pro Illuminati Artists:
Jay-Z T-Pain Jimmy Iovine
Kanye West P Diddy Skinny Puppy
Rihanna Ministry The Black Eyed Peas
Lil Wayne Dr. Dre Bob Dylan
Nicki Minaj Miley Cyrus The Game
Gucci Mane Snoop Dogg 50 Cent
Waka Flocka Flame Drake Eminem
Rick Ross Brittney Spears Ke$ha
Soulja Boy Ozzy Osbourne Lady Gaga
Chris Brown Jim Jones Justin Bieber
Beyonce Christina Aguilera Fort Minor
At the end of this list there was a note from the author and it reads as follows:
That’s the end of my list for now, I’m sure I missed many artists that are anti or pro Illuminati, but these are just some artists I could think of easily off the top of my head. For the record, yes, I have researched if these artists are really puppets of the Illuminati, and I have tons of hardcore evidence. In later posts, I will list political anti and pro Illuminati people, as well as anti and pro Illuminati celebrities, presidents/leaders, etc.
Note: My reason for creating this post was for two reasons. To inform people about some anti-Illuminati artists and pro Illuminati artists. I’m sure many people’s favorite artists are Eminem, Lil Wayne, Drake, Kanye West, Jay-Z, and such, and I found it necessary to let people know about my findings. I’m not trying to influence people not to listen to all these pro Illuminati artists, because as long as you’re listening for entertainment purposes only, it’s fine. Just don’t become brainwashed by their lyrics in anyway. My second reason for the creation of this post was to reveal some Anti-Illuminati artists. This way, by knowing artists like 2Pac, DMX, Bob Marley, Immortal Technique, etc. are/were brave enough to stand up and go against them, some people may be influenced by this and stand up as well. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and educate yourself a bit. -Posted by frankyromero2000 found at http://mywordswillexposethem.blogspot.com/2011/06/anti-illuminati-and-pro-illuminati.html
It seems that there is an endless supply of conspiracy theories out there and an equally endless amount of those that claim the theories are nonsense, but I couldn’t find almost anything online in the way of a sort of actual ‘debunking’ of these theories. However, I did find some pretty convincing (to the extremely open minded viewer) material on the so called ‘evidence’ of the Illuminati in the Music Industry. For example, a video made and produced by Farhan Khan and his group entitled The Music Industry Exposed. The video claims to expose how illuminati is controlling the music industry and using it to brain wash the public and to control them and start there New World Order plans. You can find it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUByL6LRj2I .
I guess I just thought that for every few articles related to the conspiracies being true, I would also find at least as many trying to disprove and explain the truth and the twists that led to the conspiracies. I did not. The most I found was an article titled ‘The Ultimate Music Business Conspiracy Theory’ by Bob Baker, found here: http://www.bob-baker.com/buzz/ctheory.html .
Now I am not saying either side is correct or incorrect, real or unreal. I am not an expert on the subject, just a curious journalist whose attention was caught by the notion. I will say this though, some of the these conspiracy theorists paint a pretty convincing picture of just how little control we really have over our world and our future.
