  • OK

    Ok maybe he really believes in the Illuminati, since he did talk about how he doesnt trust america after watching zeitgeist BUT the point he is TRYING TO MAKE, is that MTV is commercialized, just like the game, and base accomplishment on how many records artists sell, and they tell Lupe to "DUMB IT DOWN" Illuminati is just a Tongue-in-cheek, IMHO

  • Hmm

    Lupe Fiasco is on point. MTV is another distraction for the common man.

  • real talk

    lupe fiasco is an idiot...stfu about that illuminati bullshit n put decent music out not that japanese dumbness......he acts like speaking on sumthing that will never officially be brought to light if it is tru will make him the man but it just makes him look like a hipster with conspiracy theories...

    • wilmo3712

      really its no ones fault mtv is commercialized, he isn't wrong he just didn't say it commercialized, he said illuminati, same difference

    • jaye

      C'mon dawg open your eyes...he aint trippen maybe you just needa look at things a lil clearer. mtv used to be a channel to watch your favorite music video n talk about real music n shit now its all about stupid ass shows that keep your mind off the real shit you gotta deal with in life. Think! Mind power bruh

    • Prophetic

      he is speaking the truth, if you weren't such a complete asshole, and did u honestly say to put out decent music??? seriously??? wow, spoken like a true wayne fan, for you to try and renounce the fact that the Illuminati are REAL only makes you seem more blind to the truth that we are being manipulated by these ppl.

  • Fistoffury.

    Wow Lupe knows wasup. All people still in denial need to wake up, now. The Illuminati exist. The wool is constantly pulled over your eyes and there are countless distractions around you leading you away from the truth. Check what that mtv article said- We're not sure if you know this or not, but most of the rap blogs seem to hate you. I see nothing but love for Lupe on blogs. They talk bullshit. People stay strong!

  • Nabeel Qazi

    You guys know that William Cooper recanted a lot of the shit he said about aliens, the Illuminati, etc. and believed that he had been deceived by the military who had attempted to feed him misinformation. He died a lunatic gun nut Waco style getting shot for resisting arrest, insane and alone. Just saying.

    • compositelogic

      You do know that George Bush Senior announced the coming of the New World Order on television twice right? NWO = Illuminati

  • keithspeak

    I am almost 40 yrs old, none of you popping off about the illuminate impress me. You all will do what you did today, tomorrow and the day after that, absolutely nothing. No revolution ever happened without bloodshed.

ITS EASY TO SAY HES TRIPPIN' WHEN YOUR ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN.

    • hoopstar11

      hes using the illuminati as an example. did he once ever say he believes it? didnt think so.

    • LJbigbang

      And, actually, whilst he aligns himself with Jay-Z and Kanye West, and probably (hopefully) doesn't believe that they are "illuminati" also, I wouldn't be surprised if he's using some of the anti-Jay/Kanye sentiment to capture that audience and become a 'Friend of the People' so-to-speak.

    • LJbigbang

      Yup. Very true. I still respect his music and his message (in his music) though. I dunno why people see it as some big enlightenment when they discover that the world that we live in is commercial and superficial - that's gonna happen when you have a surplus of everything (even in the recession) - people will try to sell shit that's not worth selling, and people will buy it. If you have any shred of common sense then you'll know that the illuminati is not a real entity, but a metaphorical.

  • Anonymous

    Remember when MTV played music? Yeah me neither.

  • DallasTx_Greedy

    lmao @ people saying Lupe is crazy now bcuz he Stood up against the machine knows about Illuminati control of course its real go read some william cooper,alan watt jordan Maxwell art bell books or STFU b4 you say whats not real or not stop believing this world is all roses got ya info game up pretty much EVERYTHING in this world is not what it seems Peace.

  • MisterMoniker
