Questlove Speaks On Jay Z's Illuminati Involvement

There are plenty of theories - on the Internet - that link several successful members in the hip-hop genre to occult organizations like the Illuminati. A handful of artists have even used their song lyrics to combat the claims.

On "Heaven," a track off of his Magna Carta Holy Grail album, Jay Z raps:

In a recent interview, Questlove - Jay Z's peer and friend - answered questions about the elite fraternity.

“That folklore has always been sort of prevalent in all of music," he explained. "I guess it’s unprecedented how most people think Jay Z is the Illuminati leader.”

“And often times, even though I don’t believe it, I’ve been in a few situations in which I feel uncomfortable with how comfortable they are being in front of me," he continued. "Like, we’re friends and so sometimes I feel like ‘oh I shouldn’t have seen that’ and now they’re going to kill me.”

Questlove's only notable link to the organization is an episode of The Cleveland Show, where he portrays a member of the Rap Illuminati, alongside Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars and
