J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ Illuminati and satanic symbolism

J. Cole went on record trying to deny that Jay-Z had any kind of secret society or Illuminati affiliation, while also saying he is a conspiracy theorist of sorts. With the release of a new album this month, the more I look at J. Cole’s work, the more he seems to be pushing demonic/Illuminati symbolism. For newbies to this website, the satanic angle is there because the Illuminati are ultimately just a bunch of evil people, doing work for an evil force (whether it be reptilians, satan, or whoever).

So here’s what we’ve got thus far and you can be the judge:

His first album was called Cole World: The Sideline Story but now his second album (dropping June 18th) is called Born Sinner. This alludes to the classical entertainment industry tale of selling out to the devil, as we see with most musicians who start out fairly clean but their work gets darker over time.

Take a look at some of the artwork for his album, they all feature devil halos, or Freemasonry symbolism with skulls:

Take a look at the artwork for his second single from it, called Forbidden Fruit (just like in the Bible with the Garden of Eden story where the devil gets Eve to ‘sell out’). Kendrick Lamar is also on the track, and he’s got his own Illuminati questionables to contend with as well:


Even the release date of the album is based upon the release date of obvious Illuminati-bought Kanye West’s Yeezus:

…later revealed that he moved up the release date to coincide with the release of Kanye West’s album Yeezus, saying “Instantly the lightbulb [turned on]… it got real. I made one phone call to somebody that would know, just to make sure first. As soon as I got it confirmed, I was like, ‘Yo…’ The idea hit me instantly: ‘You got to go to that date. I’m not going to sit [here]… I worked too hard to come a week later after Kanye West drops an amazing album. It’d be like, ‘Oh and J.Cole dropped too, a week later.’ Nah. I’m going to go see him on that date. He’s the greatest. So it’s like, I’m a competitor by nature so it was instant, it wasn’t even a thought.

The first track on the album is titled Villuminati, where his lyrics tell the story of vacillation between joining the Illuminati, and trying to cover up the Illuminati:

It’s way darker this time

…Did a deal with the Devil but now I’m pleading with him
Like give me my soul

…I’m bout to go and join the Illuminati
Fuck everybody

…These next three bars is dedicated to the retards
Keep on asking me about the Illuminati
Is you stupid nigga? young black millionaire
Old white billionaires, I’m sure that they could do without me
And i ain’t really into sacrificing human bodies

…Was on track for the first two years
Then i let the Devil steer, and now we’re halfway here




A promotional single called Miss America had artwork of the ‘666’ hand gesture we see so often:

Someone captured this ‘666’ hand gesture from Cole also:


Don’t forget who’s watching you…


UPDATE 19JUN2013: Here’s Mark Dice on the whole thing:

    Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem together with your web site in internet explorer, could test this? IE still is the marketplace chief and a huge component of other people will pass over your wonderful writing because of this problem.

    • lol says

      Lul, nobody cares about internet explorer. And if you’re using that and believe anything on this page I don’t know why you haven’t switched to a non-corporate browser that isn’t consumerist shit shoved down your throat with every windows release.

  2. Creative ability says

    Oh please Im sick of people exploiting and abusing rapper’s lyrics to suite themselves. Who cares who’s illumination and who isn’t. Sh*t is too real in the world right now to waste time stalking rappers. J Cole is super talented and is expressing his feelings. Its almost 2014 man you guys need to let this illuminati thing go.

    what i think is that these rappers are desperate for attention by involving this symbolism and occultic mentioning on their music. Its like children playin around the fire but not part of the fire or the maker of it,and every child knows that the fire might hurt with any silly mistake during your play time and everybody knows that Kanye is the most desperate because his unGodlyness is the only thing putting him on the spotlight to compete with the KIMparazzi. Jay also played that card because his style just became limited,more like a straight line on the graph.He should have chilled like dre and did the background man or something,but the biggest problem is that all these boys are idols and the listener does as they do.

  5. Jaime says

    Everyone go listen to 2014 Forest Hills Drive. For all those stupid people who thought or think J. Cole is in the illuminati. He might have been influenced by the negativity of mainstream but shows that he clearly is not in the illuminati, and if after listening through the whole album you still believe rappers like J. Cole are in the illuminati then I suggest you have a reality check because clearly some of these people are too stupid to let go of their illuminati paranoia.
