In a recent essay the rapper and fashion designer wrote for ‘Paper Magazine,’ Kanye says he is very passionate about fashion design and considers himself an ‘innovator’ but has nothing to do with Illuminati. Kanye wrote:
“I heard a comment — a joke — about the Tidal press conference being an Illuminati moment… If there was actually an Illuminati, it would be more like the energy companies. Not celebrities that gave their life to music and who are pinpointed as decoys for people who really run the world.”
While it’s unclear what Kanye meant by his comparison to energy companies, the “FourFiveSeconds” singer continued on, defending himself and his fellow artists against claims that they are part of the rumored clandestine society that allegedly runs the world in secret.
“I’m tired of people pinpointing musicians as the Illuminati. That’s ridiculous. We don’t run anything; we’re celebrities. We’re the face of brands. We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don’t lose money on a contract,” Kanye explained, rather candidly.
The 37-year-old used up 139 out of his 2,600 words to trash out the issue of his involvement with the secret society in his write-up before switching to other stuff like his fashion brand, Madonna’s fall at the BRIT Awards 2015 and him being an innovator in music business.
