City: New York City

Jay-Z only validated rumors of his supposed Illuminati ties in a 2010 interview with Tim Westwood. "It's a secret society that everyone knows about," Hov said, laughing. Hold up...LAUGHING? Are we the only ones who see a tinge of evil in this gesture? Like, say, as if the speaker in question had long before sold his soul to the devil. Probably. Jay's wealth and influence over the rap industry often leave him tied to the establishment, and in more extreme cases, the Illuminati. If these rumors held any water, Roc Nation Headquarters would surely serve as his HQ. But we'd be jumping to conclusions to say any person of color could possibly head the most powerful organization in the history of humanity, in what Kanye himself called it a "white-man's world." Actually, Kendrick Lamar was probably on cue when he rapped "Who said a black man in the Illuminati? Last time I checked that was the biggest racist party."
