Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West and Nicki Minaj are reportedly headed to the small screen for upcoming cameos on FOX television series, "The Cleveland Show."
Show star Mike Henry has also revealed the episode focuses on spoofing the Illuminati.
"We have a rap Illuminati episode that's going to be happening," revealed Mike Henry, who voices Cleveland on the show. "We have an episode where Kanye and will.i.am, playing himself, and Nicki Minaj, playing herself, and Bruno Mars, playing himself, and ?uestlove--they're all part of the rap Illuminati, the secret group that controls pop culture." Executive producer Rich Appel added, "Cleveland inadvertently breaks into it and then it's how he will either bring them down or they'll bring him down. We have a couple of original songs with Kanye and will and Bruno, I mean, all of them, it was great." (Rap-Up)
In May 2010, G.O.O.D. Music's Kid Cudi shared his reaction to Yeezy previously appearing on the popular show.
"HAHAHAHA KENNY WEST MUTHAF*CKAAAAA," Cudi wrote Sunday (May 2) evening. "man congrats to big brother Kanye for a really good job on this, mad funny haha. we do it all over here at Dream On/G.O.O.D. "Watch us Bo Jackson this sh*t."-Cud" (Kid Cudi's Blog)
Last fall, Yeezy hit up Twitter to address his misunderstanding of the Illuminati.
"I've got question about "the illuminati" ... what is it exactly ???... and why do people think pop stars have a membership???!!! LOL"
"I am down with Cluemanotti though, that's my boy ... @therealdjclue"
"Is illuminati and devil worshipping like the same thing... do they have a social network that celebs can sign up for?"
"Question... can you devil worship on the new iphone??? LOL!!!"
"What's better for devil worshipping Iphone or the Droid... Does lucifer return text... is he or she on Skype? Don't wanna be sexist" (Kanye West's Twitter)
In 2010, rap stars Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz were cited for allegedly using Illuminati themes in their "On to the Next One" music video.
Remember when Vigilant Citizen proposed that Lady Gaga was a member of the Illuminati? Well, they're at it again, this time pointing to Jay-Z's video for "On to the Next One" as positive proof that the hip-hop star has a strong connection with secret societies. According to their report, the occult imagery contained in the clip includes Jay-Z making himself look holy by shining some flashing lights behind his head. Here's Vigilant Citizen to explain further: "The one who refers to himself as "HOV" or "Jay-Hova" (a reference to Jehovah, the proper name of God in Abrahamic religions) might be sending the message that he is a god in a LeVeyan satanism kind of way rather than the "black gods" of the Five-Percenters."
