Tupac Shakur: Lost Prison Interview Circa 1994 (video)

162

I know many readers of this site are rap fans so I figured many would appreciate this rare video. It is a 45 minute uncut interview with Tupac Shakur during the time he was incarcerated. This might remind people of the time when artists had something to say and had views about issues.

Tupac was about 22 years old in this video. One can only imagine the potential influence he could have had on the world as his mind matured and his views evolved. This might explain why there was such a massive FBI file about him…and probably why he got murdered. As he said himself in this interview: “They’ll start taking out anyone who is trying to do something positive for the community”. What can be more positive than making “being smart” a cool thing?


“If you take me out of the game, you won’t want to see the next one. Trust me. Take me out of the game, you won’t wanna see this next dude, ’cause he ain’t gonna have no compassion.”

Boy was he right.

Speaking as a white boy from rural America, I can easily say I used to hate Tupac. Now that I'm older I've realized that I was taught to hate Tupac and others like him. Just like "the black man" in the ghetto is taught to hate "the white man," I was also taught to hate "ghetto insert-n-word-here." What I've learned is that there has been (and still is) a huge push from within the black community to step away from this conditioning. I've stepped away from it too. Let it be said by a white ex-redneck: I love my black brothers and sisters. I respect you. I pray for you. You are my people and I will give you the shirt off my back if you but ask for it.

DOWN WITH CONDITIONING! DOWN WITH RACIAL HATRED! UP WITH THE LOVE!

Thanks, VC, for posting the vid.

I just wanted to clarify Gregg, blacks aren't taught to "hate" the white man. That distrust we have for white people is ingrained. We're taught through history to watch our backs around the white man. You can't blame us for that it's self-preservation. Even the most militant-minded black person doesn't "hate" white people — they just don't TRUST them. That's another way the illuminati has programmed white people to think — further building contention amongst us bottom bricks. I'm glad the truth has found you. Those blinders will fall off one peice at a time. I will speak for myself and say that I'm glad you gave your testimony.

AhaYAH bless!

"Wake up, it's a staged piece of propaganda.

The Obama Deception is a hard-hitting film that completely destroys the myth that Barack Obama is working for the best interests of the American people.

The Obama phenomenon is a hoax carefully crafted by the captains of the New World Order. He is being pushed as savior in an attempt to con the American people into accepting global slavery.

We have reached a critical juncture in the New World Order's plans. It's not about Left or Right: it's about a One World Government. The international banks plan to loot the people of the United States and turn them into slaves on a Global Plantation.

Covered in this film: who Obama works for, what lies he has told, and his real agenda. If you want to know the facts and cut through all the hype, this is the film for you."

Tupac to me was more then just a rapper,

he was my role model. That one person that i can look up to and be proud to. He taught me that both blak and white it dont matter.

He was and always will be a legend and role model to me.

He was a very intelligent young man. This video shows a promising artist that has a conscience and cares about the world and people. Compared to the wannebe thugs and rappers nowadays that can't even string a sentence together because they are too stoned and drugged out. I guess because he has his own mind, thoughts and opinions and was strong minded, that was why they couldn't have him become anymore popular than he was.

The fact that a person can have this much influence in terms of current issues we face today, having passed away in 1996, Tupac, and what he left behind is still very much relevant to instances that occur in the media, politics and the world as a unit. We still have people painting him with the narrow-minded brush of a thug and villain. Which by all means is an opinion at the end of the day. But if one was to really pay attention and listen and converse rather that dictate and turn those said opinions into facts then we would all be a little more clued up. Past the profanity and some of his ludicrous actions therein lied a person with immense knowledge that thrived in turning the so called 'system for the people' on its back by shoving out his views and thoughts on how those on top cannot stand to see the progression of a minority lesser than them. knowledge is power and Tupac was fully aware of this. Intelligent and artistic is why he was so favored and will continue to be. Tupac and a well recognized political figure who probably had more of an education… Read more »

first off, the music industry is controlled by satan just youtube john todd who worked for zodiac productions and do some research and u will see and understand. tupac sold his soul for fame and money just like all other singers/rappers which are not christians. if tupac was so worried about black people then maybe he should of moved to africa which makes the life style of african americans look plush in camparison.

It's amazing to see the profound impact he's had over so many people in his short life. I have a deep respect for Tupac. Anybody who is not afraid to stand up and speak the truth in a world constantly trying to tear you down, deserves mad respect. It's a shame I can only dream about what more he could've accomplished if he'd still been alive today.

On a brighter not, just because Tupac has passed on doesn't mean there aren't rap artists today out there speaking about real issues; the truth. Lupe Fiasco, Immortal Technique and such are just the tip of the iceberg, there's a whole underground world of good, conscious rap out there. It's a pity all we hear in the media nowadays is garbage music with evil messages.

Thanks for the vid, VC.

Peace.

Pac did alot for raising awareness and changing things for the minorities in America, besides his music. This video touches on it. Yes, the conspiracy surrounding his death does have an Illuminati ring to it…That's for sure. what was the exact reasoning in the killers and conspirators minds?? Was the killing an act of cowardice on behalf of illuminati forces? I wish I knew the whole truth behind it all but the fact is when multiple people probably want you dead, in high places or not you gotta watch your ass. Regardless of their race, gang ties, illuminati ties…My friends it comes down to hate jealousy money,control. Pac knew the consequences of being brave in his quest, he died in honor (being shot; but having accomplished so much in his short life, although yes it's sad he couldn't live on to do more great things.

He got me through such hard times and when I was 18 I got all eyes on me tattooed because I felt so strongly the same way Pac felt! Smile for me »is and was my anthem! One thing that I find myself repeating alotis “How am I supposed to be a angel surrounded by all these deviLS” He was so deep and passionate. I am born on Nov Seventh and I am a child of light SURRounDed by all these devils and like Pac said I shed So Many TeaRs. It makes me sad to see people go out like this TUPAC Lead us water but he kant make us drinK!

I was a rapper, who started writing poetry at the age of nine. As i grew older I falsely believed that talent was what put people on the big screen. So I pursued it, but when I finally got closer to where I thought I wanted to be, all of the truth was simply exposed because I was around celebrities. And anti-christian agendas were brought up. Prior to me coming across this experience, my first love , and friend of many years told me long ago about the illuminati. All he listened to was pac, because he could relate to every song from me against the world to brendas got a baby. He was in and out of jail many times in his young life, and was also a ward of the state due to his biological mother's drug addictions. I didnt believe in what he told me,because this was the year before the government started showing their asses, back in 2007. And you know I knew people, but as stated as well for Pac, as an artist trying to get into the game, you dont see or know that there are puppet masters behind the scenes controlling an artists… Read more »

Listen to the new Eminem songs, he has something to say for the industry he has changed especially after Proof's death, I thought it's just a cover at first but again if he is singing good things to cover himself & the Illuminati then what is he serving? good things? the Illuminati purpose is to destroy our minds & it's not happening in Eminem songs. Also they really doesn't need to cover themselves they doesn't care, look at ET song for Katy Perry it is so Illuminati. & he doesn't have to die instantly to proof he is right, They needed 17 years to destroy M.J.

I seriously appreciate this post and furthermore, I appreciate the understanding this man is FINALLY recieving after having been dead so long. He literally died to let us know what the f**k is really going on in this world. Pac was a target for the illuminati because he was sent by The Most High to rally the lost children of Israel and the Gentiles with a good/true hearts against evil forces. He was warning us. What most of you don't know is that the jews in Israel right now are IMPOSTERS. The true Israelites by blood are the black people scattered all throughout various parts of the world the decendants of the slaves from the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Not only blacks..but Native Americans and some hispanics as well. It's a tough pill to swallow for a lot of people, but it's been a conspiracy to keep the knowledge of who the children are from everyone so they can keep their pyramid system running, with us at the bottom! Not only have they hidden this from the true children of Isreal, they have hidden it from their own people as well (the working class white people)…keeping working class whites content to… Read more »

With all this extra stressin

The question I wonder is after death, after my last breath

When will I finaly get to rest? Through this supression

they punish the people that's askin questions

And those that possess, steal from the ones without possesions

The message I stress: to make it stop study your lessons

Don't settle for less – even the genius asks-es questions

Be grateful for blessings

Don't ever change, keep your essence

The power is in the people and politics we address

Always do your best, don't let the pressure make you panic

And when you get stranded

And things don't go the way you planned it

Dreamin of riches, in a position of makin a difference

Politicians and hypocrites, they don't wanna listen

If I'm insane, it's the fame made a brother change

It wasn't nuttin like the game

It's just me against the world

I grew up in a poor neighborhood, and tupac died when I was in 5th grade. I will never forget the day, there were kids crying in my class. Actually crying! It was crazy. I didn't realize at the time how BIG that was. He touched so many lives with his lyrics and music. His life was definatley cut short, and its very sad. RIP Tupac~ you live on through your music!

I always found that pac stood out more than any one when it came to rap due to his poetic view and just the realness of it all like come on real recognize real  , however people need to get the story straight … When 2 PAC was arrested for supposedly violating that girl ; that was all a set up because 2pac kept exposing the illuminati or may i say pushing their buttons and they didn't like it so they would basically put a threat on him for doing so by Locking him up for all this nonsense . What I found so funny that the day he released his last album he was killed 7 days later and another thing the day of his death before dying suge knight told 2pac to take off his bullet proof vest ( which PAC always had on ) Because he was sure he wasn't going to need it at the time so he took it off and that's when they got on the strip and the bullets fired .

I see so many mixed reactions on this board but to be honest I cannot explain the complexities of Tupac but to say he was NOT Revolutionary couldnt be further from the truth. Revolutionary is defined as engaged or promoting Political Revoultion. For any small minded individual to sit and say he was a gangtsa rapper etc. is simply put close minded. Every Banker who declines a single parent that home loan or declines her that car to get her to work and her kids to school are they gangsters no they are just doing their job. In the music industry you have record what sales and what people wanna hear I.E. label execs. Music would be a whole different scene if music execs put out the songs the artist chose like hey this is my album lets go that just doesnt happen they are in it tooo make money at any expense. For anyone who knows tupac recorded more songs then your favorite rapper has to date and he has been dead a decade. People in the black community dont percieve this as gangster rap not when he is telling your story from his perspective opening minds and eyes… Read more »

i love tupac too, i'm from the bay after all, but to say that tupac was doing something positive for the community is revisionist history. if you really look at his complete legacy including all of his positive and negative songs and actions then i think all you can be left with is a complex person with many parts good and bad in his personality. for every "brendas got a baby," he also recorded a "hit em up." as much as he would talk about black activism he ran with death row at the time, the primary purveyors of gangsta rap, and all of its negative images, stereotypes and representations. i have a hard time elevating tupac to "prophet" or "revolutionary" status because his legacy was so mixed. i think he was a smart brotha who came from that black panther legacy but was firmly a person of his own time. he was no revolutionary or prophet, he was simply a charismatic talented person who said and did as many good things as bad.

I agree, he definetly had a good side but counteracted it most of the time, he fed into his hate more than he should've to really make a difference. Maybe he would of fed the better part of him if he had lived longer, he had the potential and ears of alot of people, too bad he couldn't do better.

I'm convinced the plan was to rid the game/world of 2Pac bc he wz a revolutionary. Had he been alive today, the [rap] game would not be in the shape its in now. He would have led a nation of young people to actually think instead of just accepting what's being given to them thru these mindless, greedy, fame-driven artists of today. Oh, which poses this question to VC: Have you heard anything about Odd Future? These guys are messengers of hate, death, r**e, violence, and crimes against family and humanity in general. I think its time to stand up, fellow Vigilant Citizens…its time to stand up against this poison thats being given to our youth thru the music.

Wow even then Tupac had such revolutionary views. "fear is stronger than love remember that" "I don't have any friends" "My music will live forever" The fact that he pointed out that Blacks and Hispanic will always be targets of the government- government resources and technology- is and has already happened. The best way to determine future behavior is to look at past behavior- this will continue to happen and will intensify. "some of us might no even make it to live to be killed by aids." Prophetic words. The official story on the record would suggest that Tupac died because he was young and lived fast associated with dangerous people who did not have his best interests in mind. Which is accurate but it's not the whole truth. Half truths are still lies by omission. The "Off-the-record" story has roots- there is a lot more to this story than what is presented to the people at face value. Someone willing to dig a little deeper could request a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) release of gov. records possibly from the FBI, or correctional facilities where he was incarcerated and continue to dig a little deeper.

I totally agree with you 100%. You're exactly right about having no freedom of speech. Just look @ the Kobe Bryant fiasco. How could someone be fined for saying a word? So in that case, I need my money for "N-word," I need a check for "b*tch," "w***e", and any other offensive slur that comes to mind, but we all know why they are protecting the gays, its just another part of imposing a backward lifestyle onto the masses & our children especially. Sometimes I despise the "world" but thank God we have a Saviour…and his return is imminent.

Are u serious?
Are u serious?

You thank "God" for his Son, yet you spew ignorance. Learn the correct name for "God", and what his son taught: love one another.

Don't you see that this whole damn debate about gays is a way to further divide us? It's nothing to do with "imposing a backward lifestyle." It's a parent's job to educate their children instead of leaving it up to MTV.

Remember this: love one another. Love isn't saying "faggot" or any other offensive word intended to put one down.

As a parting thought: Yahweh knew us in the womb, and He loves us. Even the gays. So think bout that next time you say or type anything against any of His children.

Tupac was an intelligent brother who had the passion and charisma to pull off any venture that he set out to do. I feel that Tupac was very aware about how this world is ran and how it relates to the entertainment industry. He knew that he had to become apart of the industry in order to get his message out. To some people he was contradictory in his lyrics and mannerisms but I think he did that again to play the game (pretend that he is leading the masses astray through his lyrics, etc) however, his true intention was to put out positive and inspiring messages in his songs. He was going to lead people through his lyrics and eventually actions to better themselves in a world that is set up to keep a chosen few on top and the majority at the bottom. However, I believe he realized very quickly that in doing so he made himself a target and the people around him were not to be trusted. Basically, he saw how if he played the game he wasnt a threat but when he tried to stir from that he became a threat. The situation with Biggie… Read more »

People give zeitgeist too much credit. It is the same old story just repackaged for todays internet/youtube generation. Although they bash every system currently under the Sun such as religion and various forms of government, this is common for anytype of pre-revolutionary movement throughout history.

The Idea is to deconstruct- then put in place a new idea. The conclusion of zeitgiest is nothing more than collectivism/communism repackaged with re-labled terms and contemporary slogans so as to appear like a new utopian view- It is nothing more than propaganda an example of ideological subversion.

We have witnessed throughout history what has happened with communism and its end conclusion- So logically speaking, why would Zeitgiest be any different? The only thing different is the packaging- but what's inside waiting to come out is the same.

A very intelligent man indeed. There's no doubt that if he were alive today the impact he'd have on the world would be widespread. He's one of the few that had the guts to stand up and speak out…he proposed a threat to the "hidden agenda" so he had to be stopped. But riddle me this…did Tupac have great ideas?…yes…did he want something better for his community?…yes…is that wrong?…no…BUT there's just one major element missing from his revelation. See people don't realize that the evil, malice, hate, violence, etc stems from the "prince" of this world ————> Satan. How can we combat the effects if we don't deal with the source first? No human is able to defeat Satan no matter the amount of weapons or "good intentions". So how? 1 Corinthians 15:22 states "For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive"…when Adam sinned we inherited his sin nature. We were born into the "effects" of the "source" so how can we defeat something that is inherintly in us? Mess cannot clean mess…right?

Hey Moby, I will give it a shot and try to explain it for you. My explanation will be my interpretation, cords could have been trying to convey something entirely different but I believe what Cords is saying is that there is a difference between religeon and spirituality. Religeon is a man-made institution complete with rituals, traditions, and graven images (I.E. pictures of Jesus, Mary, the cross with Jesus hanging on it, rosary beads, etc.) whileas Spirituality denotes a personal state of "being" connecting with a higher consciousness, going within yourself and developing a relationship with a higher power. James 2:14 is a good scripture to read to get a better understanding of this. The saying "Faith without works is dead" is similar to a Christian claiming Christianity as his religeon but not having a personal relationship with Yeshua/Yahshua/Jesus. The beauty of Christianity is that we do not worship an absent God, one we cannot see or touch or hear. True Believers who have a personal relationship with Christ have personal intimate relationships with Him. They hear his voice in their heads, hearts, and ears. They feel His warm embrace when they need to be comforted. And they can see… Read more »

"The saying “Faith without works is dead” is similar to a Christian claiming Christianity as his religeon but not having a personal relationship with Yeshua/Yahshua/Jesus"

are you sure that is what that means. One of my main issues people in general is when they quote the Bible then interpret it in all kinds of ways.

Faith-Belief in the Lord

without works -actions, or living a Christian life, doing what "Jesus" would do etc

So wouldnt that mean the opposite, as in even if you have a belief or personal connection with God and then do not practice Christianity -attend church, preach, lifestyle, then you are wrong??

AD

I may be coming to the conversation a little late but I hope I can shed some light on this 'faith without works' topic. If someone truly believes in something, his actions will demonstrate his belief. For instance, let's say I've been standing all day and I just want to sit down. There are only two options for sitting, an old raggity chair or a sturdy, new chair. Because I believe that the one will not support my weight, I go for the newer, more sturdy chair. My actions followed my belief. The same with God. If you truly believe in him, your actions will echo your belief. However, if everything I do is contrary to what I say I believe, then I'm just paying lip service and that's all.

The media exploited Tupac and Biggie. They encouraged the West Coast/East coast beef. It was all over the nation. I wonder when people will see the truth. The elite is out to destroy those who dare to be different. In some of Tupac's songs he talks about dying. He knew that he was going to die. He knew they were out to get him. oh THEY know.

"This might remind people of the time when artists had something to say and had views about issues."

I almost find it sad that you'd say that, VC, because there is a ton of truly beautiful and inspiring music that says a lot about life but you just have to work really hard to find it, it's not going to be on MTV. And I know this because I only listen to music like that and I only make music like that.

Tupac did not have a record until after he came out with one. He was an entertainer and a poet. If you really don't know anything about him, change your name and search for the truth instead of spouting dumb stuff on message boards.

Wall Street bankers recently stole an estimated 13 trillion dollars from the American economy, and then they were genorously given a government tax payer funded bail-out, to add insult to injury. Yet, not one Wall Stree banker to date has had to pay for their crime with jail time. Tupac's only crime was his morality and for that they created the gangster.

The issue I see with the truly vigilant is the "question" of how does one change/fight/shape their (own) covenant. It's within the "readings" that we are all here witnessing, but one can not participate in the shape-shifting under the fear of the "quietened visions" of the aforementioned brethren. Take the steps that "2pac" added with his lines, or walk the fine line and see that "you" are not separate from "them".

Well, unless you consider them non-human, then that's completely alien territory to me. (Ah… the beautiful of being "lame" sometimes. Ha!)

There is an "illuminated mason" in every one of us, and how far you want to build that thought structure, depends on the base of your own foundation.

I've seen the truths of urban warfare, I've seen the savagery of men and their "eye for an eye" policy, and I've seen the beauty in a "reborn" individual.

No, they look up to him coz he spoke the truth, no lie he spoke with pure heart & soul, no demon attached. 2Pac was a poet, every word he said, every lyric was telling a story that wasnt just happenin to him. It was happening to every human being going through the ghetto and living in Americas unjust & unlawful government! He knew that in future the governments were going against the black or hispanic man, now even the muslim man. He knew, all of it. he rapped about dieing before he died! he was rich & famous yet he knew this lifestyle was going to kill him!

PREACH! I can't stand ignorant dumb ass hypocrites. Tupac was a criminal??? But it's ok for rappers to idolize ppl like Scarface, Al Capone, Frank White– got rappers namin themselves after lynch mobs and s**t! smh Rappers namin themselves after people like "Jim Jones" who led to the mass murder of over 900 ppl including women and children…but Tupac is the criminal??? Why? because he made a few records expressing his anger towards the cowards who shot him???? We got Lil Wayne shoutin out "SOO WOO" on every other track flaunting his gang ties like its cool..but tupac's the criminal? i WISH he was still alive. It wasn't until Michael Jackson mysteriously died is wen i started to realize that every person tht stood for something positive-tht would reach the masses in a positive way–was murdered..it breaks my heart tht Michael Jackson, Tupac, Bob Marley, JFK, many others were MURDERED to keep them from reaching the people..smh Tupac was ABSOLUTELY right!!!! now we're stuck wit these fake ass rappers like Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Nicki Minaj n all these willy lynch preachin ass rap n****s…smh i so wna rant..but im not..im so angry right now.

Actually tupac was in prison for "sexual abuse" not r**e. There was no physical evidence of r**e, technically it was for grabbing the womans butt. You can google it and you can research it, theres alot more to the story then whatever you read. They had, had sex prior to this incident, and she gave him a b*****b in the middle of a dance club. Just as I dont know what really happened, neither do you..so stop spreading hate.

ch-mon

you do recollect that illuminati control and conditioning also requires humiliation and that jail time can also mean their version of "rehabilitation"? I believe Tupac was too enlightened to fall for any of their conditioning. perhaps the court trials and jail time was a way to stall him….not to mention many women, and I have met some, scheme to bring down a successful black man…I lived in the area he clubbed at often and that girl gave him that blow job..she was a low life too….but for the most part i believe the elites were trying to do their job of humiliating and discrediting him. they are known for building a resume of bad behavior so one can be labeled as crazy or not a clean citizen.

19:00-19:20 Sounds like Che. Could this be the, or one of, the actual reasons they killed him?

Tupac's ok. I know he's one of the people it's practically blasphemy to say anything negative about. He had a lot of personality and wrote pretty good raps but I don't think many of his ideas are great or very well thought out. For one thing, why NOT speak out against violence even if it's not gonna turn this world into a fairy tale world? Why say retaliation violence is ok (though many of us do get that impulse of course)? And people don't join gangs so they can be regulated. If gangs were and gang members and bosses had to work hard, pay their drug money back to the community, have accountability and not be selfish I bet we'd suddenly see a BIG drop in gang activity! lol

what does that saying mean

survivalist
survivalist

it sounds like he trusted his record company, and was eager to get back to mainstream/traditional distribution of his work. so i'm not sure that he really, fully, knew/understood what the industry was about at this point. that's because the industry wasn't quite exposing themselves at the time the way they are now, and partly because he was so young and still relatively new to the industry. he clearly saw the social injustices and problems in the black communities, but seemed more to blame the government for it. if he lived a little bit longer he would have seen that the government, the entertainment industry, the media, the banks, etc. were all in it together. and that the struggle wasn't black versus white, but the elite, versus the masses.

He understood the music industry for what it was worth but understand being locked up for years for a crime you did not commit and the only way out being offered to you was through this avenue he was well aware of the chances he would be taking. And was murdered for aspiring to leave death row and re-start the Nu-Afrikan Panthers and begin his own political party. A young Black Man under 25 with those aspirations and opportunity to awaken the youth not just domestically but internationally was definitely frowned upon and not taken lightly.

I’m not a huge 2Pac fan but from my knowledge the man knew a whole lot more about the industry maybe even more than todays artists he tried to free peoples minds and at the same time free himself from death row hence he coined the phrase Killuminati. Read more and listen to his music more he was deeper than rap. P.s one thing i’ve grown to understand about the powers that be they never get their hands dirty they use u against eachother and their the only ones that really gain thats my view about how biggy and pac died its all so sad but thats what happens imagin if bush had to pick up a gun and go to iraq himself would there have been a war ?

I'm an aspiring singer with a vision and knowledge that far surpasses myself. I know I have a purpose to fulfill but I have indeed been very fearful of what will befall me if I follow my vision. In the end and in the bigger picture I know it isn't about me at all, it is about the good I can do while I am still alive- However, I, like everyone else just want to live my life out to the fullest as well. It's a choice of either assassinating my decadence for the good of mankind and dying young as a martyr or living out the rest of my life denying my potential & my purpose but staying comfortable. This will prove to be the hardest decision of my life.

I cannot WAIT until I break into the music scene because I am going HEADFIRST into all these satanic messages in music and come out PROCLAIMING CHRIST and spreading THE GOSPEL through words, music, and sounds.

Everything on this website is no surprise to me!

When I was a freemason it never took me long to discover for myself that the secrets were dark. The sad thing is most masons are not even aware of just how dark the masons are. I see the symbols everywhere and even before I looked on the web I had discovered the symbols in music videos films etc.

I got a tshirt a while back because I liked the design on it and it’s only recently that I realised the picture on the front is showing the NWO.

I had no interest in the bible until I came out the masons and I realised that we are all blind from the truth but only because these people don’t want us to know the truth. They have been given all the materialistic things in life and whither you believe god or not we are heading towards bad times. And there is nothing we can do about it but wish for a saviour.

You stop attending just the same as you stop attending mass/meetings/rites of whatever other cult. Guys, just 'cause Illuminati use Freemason symbology doesn't Freemasonry is evil. All Illuminati are Freemason, but not all Freemason are Illuminati, to put it very clearly. Abusing a set of philosophies or religious precepts for one's own nefarious purposes is nothing new and absolutely not exclusive of the Illuminati. The Catholic Apostolic Roman Chuch's hiccups through history are by far the finest example of pure evil doing hypcriticaly justified through religion. Think about the Christian symbology paraded by inquisitors and crusaders. Anyone with a sound head on their shoulders in those times would've presumed the worst out of Christianity if they managed to survive the brainwashing, but you can't absolutely blame it on the teachings of Christ 'cause we know now it was all the fault of greedy men of the cloth who distorted the Bible to their liking. The same I see happening here with Freemasonry.

What's in a word? It's only powerful in its intended derogatory sense if entertained thus. For example, where it was once a Very Bad Thing to say, gay people themselves have managed to take the word "queer", embraced and 'remixed' it to represent what they shamelessly will be if ignorant people see them as that.

Basically, it's like being called a 'nigger' and replying "Yeah, I'm a nigger. So what now?"

That can be interpreted as "Yeah, I'm a nigger [to you. But to my mother I'm a son. To my son a father. To people with understanding I am a human being. But to you, I'm a nigger. You ain't worth my attention, biatch.] So what now?"

2 Pac coined the word "Killuminati" because he was exposing them and trying to Kill it. The hand sign everyone knows as westside, is really the masonic "M" hand sign inverted, turned upright with the 2 middle fingers crossed. Ironically Killuminati was the last album 2 Pac himself released because he was soon after killed.
