While The Illuminati is continuously brought up in Hip Hop, iconic Hip Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa has taken it a step further and believes that Hip Hop has now fallen victim to what he refers to as a “Luciferian conspiracy.“

Bambaataa shared his thoughts on this conspiracy and more in a recent interview with the Chicago-Sun Times.

“Hip-hop has been hijacked by a Luciferian conspiracy,” Afrika Bambaataa explained to the Chicago Sun-Times, reports AllHipHop.com. “People have used hip-hop in a lot of ways that cause a lot of mind problems. They use the word wrongfully. They use it to mean a part instead of a whole. Like many of these [radio] stations say they’re hip-hop, they’re playing hip-hop. I go to these stations, and these so-called program directors don’t know jack crap about hip-hop culture. They know rap to a certain extent. But I question them. I say, ‘Where’s your go-go, your hip-house, your electro-funk, your raga, your R&B and soul?’ They get real quiet.”

A number of artists have been accused of being a part of The Illuminati; Jay-Z is typically the most mentioned artist when it comes to Hip Hop and The Illuminati.

Jay-Z spoke on The Illuminati accusations and referred to them as “stupid” and “ignorant” in an interview with radio station HOT 97 last year.

“I think it’s one God. I think it’s all the same God, and I don’t believe in Hell. But as far as God, of course I believe in God,” said Jay-Z. “Am I a part of some sect or cult? That sounds stupid to me. It’s like ignorant to even say, and umm…I guess that’ll be the last time I address that. It’s ignorant to me.”
