Is Lil Xan in the Illuminati?: Satanic Symbolism in Hip Hop

As you’re more than aware of; I’ve got a particular niche set of interests. This includes research into the occult and how the “Illuminati” inserts symbolism via hip hop and entertainment. Today we’ll explore one of today’s most famous rappers- Lil Xan.

Satanism in Hip Hop

just wrote an article on Lil Uzi Vert and Juice WRLD’s song Wasted because it clearly talks about pursuing Satan:


She do cocaine in my basement
I’m her doctor, but I’m runnin’ out of patience
She told me that she tryna get closer to Satan
She be talkin’ to him when she in the matrix

Lil Uzi Vert is one of the most open rappers to claim his allegiance to the dark lord (I also conducted an analysis on Lil Uzi Vert as L-UCI-FER worth taking a look at):


Other rappers like Trippie Redd have also pushed this new wave of satanism in hip hop:

So it seems that today’s rappers are obsessed with embracing “The Other” so let’s dig deeper on Lil Xan…


Lil Xan: Illuminati Symbolism

For those of you that aren’t familiar with the newest wave of rappers; there is a genre often times referred to as “SoundCloud” rappers (named after the free distribution platform they typically get started on). These new rappers have emulated Lil Wayne by getting many tattoos on their face.

Lil Xan is one such rapper and we need to take a look at a couple of his face tats:




Here we see the inverted cross- an overt reference to Satanism in the sense that it is inverting Christianity. Satanists use this symbol to demonstrate the antinomian principles of their beliefs in the fallen angel of Lucifer (see my book  The Dark Path for a comprehensive explanation).

Lil Xan also got a tattoo that says “Memento Mori” which is a phrase used by Freemasons.

Memento Mori from “Wicker Man” (a film about pagan blood sacrifice)

The phrase is meant to demonstrate the principles of realizing we all die. The Masons use it in a “reflection chamber” during initiation rites (*although “Memento Mori” is not exclusive to Freemasonry).

On a song called Deceived Lil Xan clearly states the grip Satan has over him:

Satan's got a grip on me
Heaven's looking very bleek
Steal my faith and everything
Eating off that apple tree
Sunlight shining every beam
Gloomy days keep scaring me
All my friends are enemies

He has a curious lyric that says “Sunlight shining every beam” which is another reference to Lucifer- the fallen angel (referenced as the light bearer and the real god of the “Illuminati”).




In Conclusion

Stay tuned as Lil Xan gets more popular- he’s surely going to push more of the familiar symbolism I’ve been talking about for years on and in my hip hop conspiracy book Sacrifice: Magic Behind the Mic.

A while back I was interviewed by COMPLEX magazine (along with late rap-legend Prodigy; a huge honor for me) and we hit on the subject of satanism in hip hop:
