The Blatant Occult Symbolism of “Up” by Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert



“Up” by Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert is one of the most blatantly satanic music videos in the history of rap. And it is a good indicator of where urban culture is headed.

It took me about 8 seconds of watching Up to realize that I had to write an article about it. Then I scrolled down and about 70% of the YouTube comments were about the video’s satanic, Masonic and Illuminati symbolism. Here’s an example.

Indeed, even for the symbolism-illiterate, the video is blatantly satanic. And to the symbolism-literate, the video has an even darker meaning. It confirms that Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert (pronounced Lil Lucifer) are fully “owned” by the occult elite and it is another proof that our popular culture is losing its mind.

Clearly Sold to the Agenda

Last year, in my article about Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Llif3”, I looked at the satanic symbolism associated with his entire act. A few months ago, he released a song entitled “444 + 222” which equals 666. During the 2018 Wireless Festival, Uzi told his fans that it was the rapture and they were all going to hell with him. The rapper said:

“And if nobody flying up to heaven right now, obviously all y’all motherf*ckers going to hell right with me”.

He then added that the fans are stuck in hell with him.

“I’m so sorry. You can’t get out! You’re stuck, it’s over. You heard the song a million times and you didn’t even know. That’s f*cked up but I still love you anyway.”

Along with other young stars such as Young Thug, this new generation of artists is taking rap to a new, strange direction. While some people call them “weirdos”, they’re actually fully compliant to the elite’s clearly defined agenda.

In many ways, Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert are very similar. They both continually rap about popping pills (especially opioids and benzos), they’re both down with occult symbolism and, of course, they’re both confused about their gender. In short, they’re exactly what the elite wants the youth to be.

For years now, Young Thug has been confusion the hip-hop world by combining him being “gangsta” with his extra-feminine look that often includes dresses, fingernails, skintight jeans and kids-size shirts.

While some people praise Young Thug for being daring and “carefree”, they are missing the bigger picture. There is a massive “gender blurring” movement happening all over mass media and he is part of it. He has been assigned to bring this high-level agenda to the hip-hop world.

In an advertisement for Calvin Klein, Thug proclaimed that he doesn’t believe in gender, stating that “In my world, you can be a gangsta with a dress or you can be a gangsta with baggy pants.” Fusion described him as “defying gender stereotypes and agitating the way hip-hop defines black masculinity, through his eccentric sense of style. The media has called him gender fluid and androgynous.

And he is not the only rapper doing it now. It is something that is being forced.

Jayden Smith wore women’s clothing on several occasions.

Lil B wore this on ESPN. Strange “coincidence”: Lil B is also into satanic stuff.

Of course, Lil Uzi Vert.

Young Thug’s wardrobe – and the fact that he regularly refers to his close male friends as ‘hubbie’ or ‘lover’ – lead to rumors of him being gay. While I have absolutely no idea of Young Thugs sexual orientation, he’s definitely about the feminization of men.

Young Thug posted this pic of him and Lil Uzi Vert wearing a purse, an ankle bracelet, pearl necklaces and, to top it off, drinking Alizee from a champagne glass.

Some might say: “So what if they like to wear dresses, that doesn’t mean they’re part of a sinister agenda”. Well, the video for Up confirms it. And then some.


The song Up has no elaborate theme or narrative. It is basically Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert rapping about drugs, hoes, and material things. The hook goes like this:

I take molly and go up (up)
We take coke (and what?) we go up (go up)
We got hoes (bitches) it’s ’bout to go up (ooh)
You playin’ with smoke (brrt), it can go up (it can go up)

Appropriately enough, the video of Up has no elaborate theme or narrative. It is basically Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert bouncing around while intense occult and satanic symbolism flash on the screen. The video screams out: “We own these two dudes” as the entire set looks like a Masonic lodge.

The video begins with this: A soulless being crawling on a Masonic checkerboard floor surrounded by red drapes. To make things extra-satanic, the scene is upside down.

This is the inside of the Masonic Grand Lodge of France.

The Masonic floor is a visual representation of one of the most important concepts in occultism: Duality. On this surface – which represents the duality of good and evil, light and darkness, male and female – all Masonic rituals take place. Is this concept reflected in Up? Hmm.

The floor, the wall and even the girls are 100% covered in dualistic pattern.

Some observers pointed out that the set of Up is similar to the “Black Lodge” scenes in the 90s TV series Twin Peaks.

The Black Lodge in the series Twin Peaks consisted of dualistic floors, red drapes and people possessed by demons. Analysis of this highly symbolic series would probably require a very long article.

Up features another important element found in Twin Peaks (that is also extremely important to the occult elite): An owl.

There are several shots of an owl during the video.

The owl – the nocturnal predatory bird that can see in the dark – is one of the oldest symbols representing the occult elite.

Inside this occult temple, there’s a bunch of girls (gotta make this enticing to young people). However, there’s a catch: They’re outright demonic.

This girl is crawling upside down like that possessed girl in the Exorcist.

That possessed girl in The Exorcist.

This girl wears a pentagram on her face and horns on her head + a ritualistic red dress. In occult symbolism, holding horns means drawing occult power from demonic forces.

Her outfit is strikingly similar to creations showcased in the Satanic London Fashion Show I analyzed last year.

The girl’s outfit appears to be a combination of these two entries from the 2017 London Fashion Show. It took place inside a church and on a dualistic checkerboard floor.

Yeah, this girl is possessed as well.

This girl has seven eyes – including a big one on the forehead where the “third eye” would be. She also wears a dualistic vest. But mostly, she has seven eyes.

Why does this girl have seven eyes? Is she OK? The seven eyes might allude to the biblical verses mentioning the “seven eyes of the Lord”.

See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the LORD Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.
– Zechariah 3:9

The seven eyes are also mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
– Revelation 5:6

Considering the satanic context of the video, this reference to biblical verses might be coming from a “black mass” stance – where religious items are ridiculed and desecrated.

In short, this video was 100% about Illuminati symbolism … and Young Thug making high pitched noises. Not sure which is more annoying.

In Conclusion

The video Up is filled to the brim with symbolism that has been described on this site for over ten years. If you’ve been reading this site for a while, you have to admit that the same exact pattern of symbols keeps reappearing in music videos. Although there’s a constant flow of new, young artists who released new songs, the same exact symbols are prominently featured in their videos. Why? Because those who direct the videos are connected to the elite who is looking to saturate all mass media with the same agenda and symbolism. That is how you brainwash a population.

As seen in the article, the agenda is not merely about Illuminati symbolism. It is about everything else. It is about encouraging young people to swallow lots of pills in order to turn them into chemical zombies; It is about confusing people about the very simple concept of gender; It is convincing people that the world that satanism and black magic is fun and sexy.

Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert did not invent anything. They’re simply taking the path that will make them … go Up.

Until they go down. Very down.
