    A lot of you Internet cowards like to get on the comment section and spew out a bunch of nonsense. I can't see the world through your eyes because I don't wear eyeliner and glue-on eyelashes - you are acting like bitches. Let's keep it real more dumb asses go on and on about Jay-Z and a number of other artists who are supposed Illuminati puppets but none of them control the banking system, none of them start wars to depopulate the planet. None of them run corporations responsible for putting people out of their houses - the list goes on and on. So I got to call you little bitches out because even if Jay and the others mentioned are all that - none of them are doing the shit that has this whole world on the brink of destruction. They are small potatoes. So what has your panties in a bunch? Hating on your possibly misguided brother only has the enemy tickled pink. In my opinion all this Illuminati talk is a tactic because no one is talking about the white folks involved. None of y'all are talking about how Conrad Murray is a 32 degree or how Michael Richards (the comedian from Seinfeld who made the racial remarks) is a 33 degree. None of y'all are talking about how Hollywood is promoting mammy and coon imagines of black folks. Where is all the outrage about that? Bottom line if you want to be a soldier for the cause then get that bitch up out your system - it clouds your judgement.

    [@ wow] There may very well be some merit to your comment but in the grand scheme of things it does not matter. Jay is one person. You have systems within systems that work against the people. Why get so worked up over the issue unless you are masking your jealousy with conspiracy theory. Unless you have been socially and economically conditioned all the subliminal messages in the world won't have you buying the new Jordan's and acting a damn fool. You are too emotional to fight this fight fall back.

    jay-z is a corporate pawn. one of the bitch niggas that helped change rap from a street science into a globalized commercial. ever wonder why broke niggas are enamored by another mans wealth? maybach this, gucci that, louis this, truly disgusting. AMERICAN EXPRESS performance? wall street funded rap music? believe it. this sick brother jay-z is wearing alister crowley slogans on his shirts, rocking skull and bones, playing with all the masonry imagery for attention, while he makes material music targeting the youth. you dont get all thsoe corporate connections by being a "hustler", you get those connections by playing puppet. no one man can do all that on his own in one lifetime. there have been many sacrifices to get what jay-z got. this is the same guy is pushing rihanna on the kids, the devil bitch singing about s and m for little girls. the same guy siging will smiths little brainwashed scientologist daughter. a lot of yall need to wake the fuck up. jay z doesnt give a fuck about you. he cares about bloomberg, the guy destroying public housing locking brothers up at a record clip. funny thing is the average joe will call me crazy, or laugh it off like it's funny. stay stupid, stay blind. sheep get led to slaughter.

      If we go by the shirts that he is wearing then we can safely say Jay-Z is christian http://forestfactory.blogspot.com.au/2011/03/jesus-has-taken-wheel-camel-man-puts.html

      Fk you are all dumb sh1ts. You ask "why is American Express sponsoring rap music"? Oh, it's Illuminati obviously. Fukcing dumb idiots. Why do you think? Rap music is hot music, it's what teenagers and young people listen to. It's "cool". Its actually not that complicated. It's basic marketing. Don't over think it. It will hurt your small heads, fuckn retards

      "do as thou wilt" - alister crowley why does jay-z wear that shirt everywhere? just a fly quote huh? jay-z has a 360 deal with roc nation. hes a corporate slave at the highest level. again, stay stupid. they've been pushing subliminal messages through hollywood and music for YEARS, broke kids paying 100 bucks in zombie mode to watch these guys perform. music is just one part of the equation. why is american express sponsoring rap music? rap music was poor ppls rebellion, not anymore. sold, out.

    • JC

      You're either really paranoid or just plain got sh1t for brains. Give up on your wack illuminati theory. Jay Z is a commercial rap artist, get over it.
