It can be dangerous when a conspiracy theory gets out of hand. For several years, folks who have very little experience with proper research have created videos and books about the Illuminati’s role in hip-hop.
These peeps post ill-advised documents that suggest that all great hip-hop stars had to sacrifice someone or themselves to reach celeb status in the entertainment industry.
Well one inspiring rapper from Richmond, Virginia took the conspiracy theory a bit too far.
According to reports, Wafeeq Sabir El-Amin tried to murder his friend while the two were in the studio. El-Amin told his friend that he needed to sacrifice someone to join the Illuminati and become a famous rap star. Lawda mercy!
Soon after, El-Amin pointed a gun at his friend and fired a shot. The bullet grazed his friend in the arm. The victim was able to wrestle the gun away from El-Amin and shot him in the stomach.
El-Amin is ok because he’s awaiting trial in June.
