Kanye West : “Tidal is not the Illuminati”


Paper Magazine published a letter written by Kanye West in which he rebukes the fact that musicians are pinpointed as being “the Illuminati”, adding that “we don’t run anything”. Duh.

A few months after his wife’s big oily butt starred on the cover of Paper Magazine, Kanye West graces us with his timeless words of wisdom in the same publication. In his letter, Kanye describes his dabbling in the fashion world as an epic struggle everybody should care about, he compares himself to Steve Jobs several times and  then goes off for a few paragraphs about how he’s an inventor and an innovator. In short, the letter is the most Kanye West thing ever written.

Beyond his usual rant, Kanye also rebukes the fact some people called the Tidal press conference an “Illuminati moment”.

The weird, awkward star-studded conference promoting Tidal.
The awkward, star-studded conference promoting Tidal. You can see the enthusiasm in their eyes.

Launched by Jay-Z, Tidal is a streaming music service that users must pay for. Despite the unremarkable nature of the service, the PR surrounding it however describes is as a “revolution” and a “historic moment”. The ad campaign surrounding Tidal is a cringe-inducing gathering of rich people complaining about how they want more of your money.

This ad unites some of the biggest industry puppets in the world – “artists” who have been paid to push the elite’s Agenda for years. For that reason, some people (even Complex magazine) half-jokingly called the conference an Illuminati reunion.

Kanye West took offense to that and felt the need to clarify something important : Tidal is not the Illuminati. He then proceeds to explain the obvious :

“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. 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.”

Kanye then explains how his peers are puppets subjected to the industry’s will.

“We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don’t lose money on a contract. Madonna is in her 50s and gave everything she had to go up on an award show and get choked by her cape. She’s judged for who she adopts. F*ck all of this sensationalism. We gave you our lives. We gave you our hearts. We gave you our opinions!”

Madonna "choking on her cape" at the Brit Awards trying to do what the elite requires her to do in order to stay relevant.

In short, Kanye is right. Tidal is not the Illuminati. But nobody with half a brain actually believed that. Most of the artists associated with that campaign are industry pawns who do as they’re told and who barely control anything relating to their careers. They were most likely forced to appear in that universally hated ad campaign. Record companies create artificial hype around their artists, puts them under the spotlight and uses them to push various messages.

When Kanye said : “We gave you our lives. We gave you our hearts. We gave you our opinions!”, he should have been addressing the elite controlling the music industry – not the public. Because these artists gave everything to them … and they SOLD everything to us.

"We gave you our lives. We gave you our hearts. We gave you our opinions!” Oh no…no..no honey, you sold yourself, it wasn't free, and it's called being a w***e!

That's **** with a W hahaha

ALSO you bunch of musical retards, no one is accusing brainless idiots like you of being the Illuminati, we're accusing you of being PUPPETS.


LOL!!!! "You can see the enthusiasm in their eyes" I used to feel so disturbed and sickened by this stuff but now its all just laughable. I mean I feel bad for these clowns.. they look so empty and lifeless despite the millions of dollars between them. I look at my life as a poor person and I'm actually VERY happy; I'm surrounded by loved ones and I have the ability to enjoy the simple things and not take things like food and shelter for granted. I used to envy people like that, NOT ANYMORE. I have healthy and happy relationships with my loved ones, my God and myself 🙂 enough money for organic food, thriftstore clothes, shelter, a vacation now and then and I'm good.

I'd tell him were to shove his music service & no one wants his heart (if he can find it) or his opinions, what a w**k

Energy companies??!! Fuck you KAnye

Even when denying the illuminati label he pushes an Illuminati agenda, the war on fossil fuels and the global warming scam.

Prize fuckwit. He's no where near as talented as he thinks he is.

~ "we're not the illuminati." like hell you would be. you're their bloody drones. you've been mindf*cked so many times, you don't know if your coming or going let alone spreading disinformation.

Madonna's dancers were wearing Baphomet horns……is this s**t normal now? Wtf

Yup, that's what this world has come to.. And people think it's completely normal.. It's just sad!

The record companies and the phony artists they push on us are DEAD TO ME!

Have fun losing EVERYTHING like the rest of us have because once EVERYONE catches on, get in the bread line suckas!

Actually he is right on point…he is just a puppet….& so is madonna….her EXACT words as she fell…."I let down my GUARD….."…….well……….they are the VICTIMS & Vessel…..as the Garbage video say when the robot replaces the original……The World is not Enough….. but it's a perfect place to start…….now that was one serious ILLUMINATI movie planning out the first decade of the New Millennium that we see before us….IS, Chenchen rebels, OIL pipelines, Nuklear mayhem & Stockholm Syndrome, terrorist…..well……Electra King….always felt the 007 movies were pure Archonic devices for predictive programming of in plain sight…….ps when will someone breakdown Daniel Craig…..he seems to have avoided Occam's razor…..and when you consider he dated the drunk beta Moss…..well…..

West is living proof of the old saying: "Rich people are eccentric, but poor people are crazy." Every time he opens his mouth, he gives (me anyway), more evidence that his has grandiose delusions in connection with schizophrenia or the manic end of bipolar disorder. I can't make up my mind if his programming has popped a gasket, or if he's crazy, or both! Anyway, if he were one of us 99% he'd have been locked up long ago.

nah he wouldn't be locked. Most of the demented ones are free outside. The asylum is outside.

“We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don’t lose money on a contract"…..So in a way he (Kanye) just admitted to being puppets of the illuminati. They are pawns which are easily disposable and replaceable if they don't play right.

nothing else than the best music industry puppets of illuminati elite to promote tidal;

Why is it that those with the least talent get the spot light?
I'm a musician and have seen this personally in the many bands and music projects I have been in.
The front man/band leader, or lead singer wants to be in control while offering the least to the group.

On the other hand, I have seen very talented though not often enough people, share the stage and spot light with the sidemen/musicians.

The music business is a back stabbing, dirty dealing,ego filled, loud & obnoxious, two faced industry.

And those are it's good points.

Tidal's logo. It is literally the Masonic checkerboard floor.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666. If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, he same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of… Read more »
"and they SOLD everything to us." Except for their souls. That they sold to someone else. These celebrities use the only defense they can: maintain argumentative division between those who know what these celebrities are up to, and the brainwashed masses who refuse to see what is becoming more and more obvious to those paying attention. The celebrities already know that we are onto them. Their objective now is to slow the process of awakening. So when Kanye uses simpleton logic like "we don't run anything", he already knows that we understand that you don't have to run it to be in on it. But to the mind of the average dupe, it is equivalent to saying "there is no elite conspiracy, so continue on with what you were already doing or not doing". If you want to see just how corrupt these celebrities really are, watch any interview or… Read more »

They looked so spaced out!!!!

The most important part is that if they don't repent they will all burn in hell for all eternity!

god, jesus, allah, buddha, satan, etc., are either creations of the first planet controllers (= illuminati) or they're just how our ancestors perceived 'ancient aliens' (watch this show on the History Channel and it will open your eyes to a lot of things) who visited Earth. They're not real. All religions are false and were created in order to divide us and control us even more. All sentient beings in the universe are immortal souls, all in different stages of their evolution. That's what 'god' is, not a supreme single being! The day we realize this is the day we are no longer powerless, afraid and hopeless, and everything that we thought was important or relevant (money, owning stuff, career, being better than everyone else, being successful, etc.) will no longer matter anymore. You say your eyes are open, yet you believe in one of the biggest lies told to… Read more »

no… just no…

How can anything be completely orderly, and without fault or exception if "we" are God? And if so, where did "we" come from? Certainly we aren't Always Existing.

God IS a Supreme, Sovereign Being expressed as 3 Persons all while still being One. (Research the name Eloyhim.) He existed before Everything and will Exist after Everything. (Hence His I am Alpha and Omega statements.)

@Mike. Yeap! I agree but that applies to EVERYONE(including myself)not just those in the entertainment industry.We must asked God for forgiveness and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.We have a CHOICE.God will not force anyone to get saved.If people decide to use their free will and decline becoming born again and avoiding spending ETERNITY(forever) in the lake of fire.That’s up to them.

No they won't.

yea but there's nothing they can do now. once their souls are sold, can't ever get em back

Not true. You can't sell your soul to the devil because he already HAS it, unless you receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour.

The truth shall set you free….

I don't care for Kanye as a person, but as for the illuminati satanic a lot of the puppets including famous people are actually signed into the group by their parents. They know how to corner people and manipulate people into signing in with them. The selling of the soul isn't real. It's a metaphor for giving your life over to them to control. Some of them have to do satanic rituals etc for the elite. I don't care for Madonna either she is extremely blasphemous is her performance, but I'm still not judging her actions she might have to do it..sometimes if you don't comply they threaten family members and their children's lives. I personally think Madonna and Kanye like the fame because they're naturally self centred individuals that love attention, but I think there are some good hearted people that really don't like it and want to get… Read more »

God knows who is of ill intention and who is not. Don't forget he has authority over all creation. Even fallen. They know too. They just aren't mature so they do things to mock and spite God..but God always has the full authority over souls.

Jesus Christ isn't your savior, God is. Jesus is merely a human, he was a prophet for God, not God himself.

Uh, Jesus Christ Himself said "I am in the Father and the Father is in me" and "If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father", and "Even before Abraham was, I AM."

I think its PRETTY fair to say that Jesus Christ *IS* GOD.

Dear me, some cannot face the truth. One thing to be an a******e but to be so dishonest, is another thing. It's preferable to say, 'Yes I cannot live up to Christ's expectation. I want to do whatever I wish but I understand that even though I'm a bvm, that's the truth'. On the other hand, by denying the truth or distorting it because I don't fancy to behave like I was meant to, it's cockiness all over the place.

That's true about ALL of US.

Well, if we were all going to hell anyway, it wouldn't make a difference to be good or not….

oh, sorry, forget what i said, i read your comment wrong!! sorry

Maybe some school kids concluded after smoking too much crack that the music industry is the illuminati.

Stupid but blame the media for that confusion. They deliberately want to misdirect youth to follow the appearance of power rather in order to convince them to sacrifice their own personal power in exchange for delusional fantasies that never materialize. The proverbial carrot held in front of the donkey to make him run.

These stars who are addicted to the idea of fame have no brains. They are quite literally w****s who sell their bodies for sexual stimulation. It’s legalized but it’s still prostitution. W***e of Babylon? Probably but I figured that was really the politicians.

I saw Arcade Fire (Win and Regine) and I guess I can't deny anymore how much they have sold out. Why are they involved in this? Were they forced? I'm so disappointed because I really love their music. Ugh!!!

Watched the video clip and heard the following, not in exact words but to this extent, "that we need to come as we are as artists [this word again]" and "it is something about the people and not technology", but then there are persons dressed up in robotic militant type uniforms? Is this a joke? Also, don't these faces we see seem very confused with their speech and in what they say? Having to say one thing and doing the exact opposite with their careers? I am afraid though that these faces at this Tidal event are not joking and the confusion on their part, and seen by an observer, is due to them not knowing/misrepresenting what they, the "artists", truly are. Confusing is the product of lies/misrepresentation/hypocrisy. To my understanding art is to inspire beauty/well-being/intelligence. Most of the faces I see in this article do no such thing (more… Read more »

Not being racist but im sure being black is not allowed in the illuminati. Something id read elsewhere.

Me too! Yaay Chrisnajar!!

Didn't expect to see Chris Martin.

why not? isn't he Jay-Z's buddy? tell me who your friends are, to tell you who you are.

Just look at the logo… Checker board, and in the shape of an arrow pointing south. We know who these guys work for.
