The following entry (an interview with author Rebecca Scott) was featured in “XXL,” Magazine:
XXL: What is the Illuminati?
RS: The Illuminati from the standpoint of my research refers to all of the secret societies and global elitist clubs including The Brotherhood, P2, The Freemasons, Skull and Bones, The Boulè, The Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, The Royal Insti*ute of International Affairs, The Bohemian Grove Society, The Order of the Rose, The Round Table, and other such “secret” organizations.
The Illuminati is not a boys’ or girls’ club or a group of adults trying to have fun in life; this is bigger and much more sinister. It is an extremely well structured organization consisting of people in very High Places. Those people are the super wealthy, and they are above the law. Many of them don’t even appear on the list of the wealthiest people in the world – they are that secret. They are motivated by power, money and control over life and death of others and themselves. The reach of these people stretches throughout all areas of society. From the production of food and basic necessities to commodities, to education, housing, government, medicine, to all industrial needs and banking insti*utions, to entertainment; these small, elite groups of people pull strings to orchestrate world affairs to their liking. These people are psychotic and will do anything to stay in power.
XXL: When did you become aware of the Illuminati’s involvement in hip-hop? Were there any key signs?
RS: Back the Nineties when I was representing Mad Lion and KRS-1, Lion and I worked out of a recording studio on West 42nd Street. At some point in the game, without my artist’s knowledge; I was approached by Patricia Durst (of the billionaire Durst Organization, Inc.) to open a recording studio directly across the street at her family-owned 4 Times Square property. To this day, I do not know how Patricia found me. Seeing the money potential in having my “own” studio, I accepted the offer and was given a LARGE cash incentive. I now had two operations bringing in money. However, it was not long after I did the Durst deal that I was again approached; this time by a man who said he “represented” Durst. He said that they would “need” to use my studio for the packing and distribution of illegal imports. (For obvious reasons, I cannot elaborate further on this.) Since I was already in bed with these people, I agreed and became wealthy overnight. I moved from Jefferson Houses on 112th Street in Harlem to the La Premier on West 55th. My secret arrangement with Durst went on for two years without Mad Lion or KRS-1 ever knowing about it. Eventually, Patricia started bugging out. She put crazy “art” displays in the big picture windows on the main floor facing 42nd Street and this brought unwanted media attention to the building. It didn’t help that we were conducting illegal activities upstairs. My unwanted dealings with her kept me paranoid, delusional, miserable and rich. I was clocking more money from this secret deal than the music. The end of the road came when Durst’ representative reappeared and asked me to facilitate having my artists transport said contraband on tours. (Note: this was around the time John Forte of the Fugees got busted). I knew it was time to bail out. When I told Patricia she threatened to take down my empire. By now, I was doing side deals with Flavor Flav, Sir Benni Miles and I had just wrapped my movie on Tupac, “Thug Immortal,” with director, George Tan. Pat Durst got sidetracked with her own problems when her brother, real estate heir Robert Durst got busted for murder in PA. But like all dealings with Satan, I did take a fall. I was busted and did 10 years on Federal drug charges as a result of trafficking coke concealed inside of art work. When I was released from prison I went back to the hood and stayed underground for years. I knew it was better to be a poor, alive woman than a rich dead one. The fact that people of this stature even took an interest in a small, independent, hip-hop manager like me was my first key sign that the game was about to change.
XXL: When did the Illuminati take over hip-hop?
RS: I saw when the Illuminati first infiltrated hip-hop. How they used folks. In the Nineties, there were two wealthy young white girls who had the game on lock…Jessica Rosenblum and Amanda Sheer. Jessica Rosenblum and Amanda Sheer were the biggest promoters in hip-hop during this time. You could not get your hip-hop artist into a party or show without going through Jessica or Amanda. These two came out of nowhere. There were a lot of people who were getting jerked back then. But then there were some who got even fatter, like Puffy…what an appropriate name. Puffy has a long history with Jessica…he was riding her coat all the way back to the City College massacre.
Many people do not know that the Illuminati were behind the City College tragedy. The behind the scenes promoter of the event was in fact, Jessica Rosenblum, not Diddy as the media portrayed. Unbeknownst to a lot of folks, those 9 people that died that night were the result of Jessica (who collected the money and just let Diddy put his name all over everything) ordered the security guard to lock the last available exit door after she was safely behind it. She did this because she thought that the people would try to snatch the cash box holding the night’s proceeds. On the other side of that exit door is where the nine bodies were piled up, crushed from people trying to escape gunfire through the locked exit. It would not be long before the term “Bad Boy” would become appropriately associated with Puffy’s name.
XXL: Who are the key players in the union of the Illuminati and hip-hop?
RS: If you mean key “pawns” (i.e., expendable pieces) then count Sean “Puffy” Combs who attended Howard University where he became a member of the notorious fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha and they are all Boulé (i.e., Illuminati pawns). Other key pawns include, but are not limited to Jay-Z, Will Smith, Ne-Yo, T.I., Nelly, Kanye, Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Beyonce, Dr. Dre, Eminen, Rick Ross, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Mike Jones, Lil’ Flip, Young Jeezy, all who have allowed the Illuminati to use them to infiltrate hip-hop.
There is however; one KEY player and that is BMG (Bertelsmann Music Group) Publishing, an Illuminati front that controls over one million copyrights. Artists who are now or have once been signed to this company, or one of its affiliates, include Avril Lavigne, Coldplay, Shakira, Nelly, Britney Spears, R. Kelly, Shania Twain, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Linkin Park, Jay-Z, Maroon5, Justin Timberlake, Joss Stone, Elvis Costello, Ne-Yo, Mariah Carey, Black Eyed Peas, Kenny Chesney, The Game, Mario, Rascal Flatts, No Doubt, Thomas Anders, Jessica Simpson and 50 Cent as well as legends like Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.*Rebecca Scott’s book “Hip-Hop Illuminati,” can be purchased online at an variety of bookstores.
