Hundreds of YouTube channels specializing in conspiracies scru- tinize music videos and images of the rapper to find Illuminati symbols. The aim is to prove that Jay-Z and many other stars from the music and entertainment industry have joined – or are con- trolled by – the rich and powerful secret society. This is believed to explain their continued success and wealth.
Even crazier is the theory that Jay-Z is a time traveller, too. A picture taken in 1939 in Harlem, New York, is supposed to prove this. In fact, the man in the photo looks strikingly similar to the rapper. But although it is not yet known who this person is, it is certainly not Jay-Z.
