Jay-Z addresses his faith through lyrics
Jay-Z takes aim at all those who have questioned his spirituality on the new Rick Ross song "Free Mason". At the top of the year, while on New York radio, Jay dismissed rumors that he was a member of the illuminati, worshiped the devil and had Satanic images in the video for "On to the Next One".
"I got a lot of money," Hov told Power 105.1 radio host Ed Lover on January 13. "When people get a lot of money, they start getting those rumors, like Tom Cruise, Willie Smith. That's ridiculous."
On "Free Mason," which is a play off the rumors that Jay is a Freemason, Hov shoots back.
“N—as couldn’t do nothing with me, they put the devil on me…I would have preferred n—as squeeze the metal on me/ Rumors of Lucifer, I don’t know who to trust/ The whole world wants my demise, turn the music up.
“If y’all n—as fear me, just say y’all fear me…F— all these fairy tales/ Go to hell, this is God engineering/ … I said I was amazing/ Not that I’m a Mason …/ I’m on my third six, but a devil I’m not…”-Jay-Z
Hopefully this puts all those stupid rumour and conspiracies to rest!!!
