Jay-Z’s rumored connection to the historical secret organization known as the Illuminati has been a much talked about topic for a few years now. And while he’s brushed off the rumors as being outrageous and even humorous, the discussion continues.
In a recent interview with Delta Airlines’ Sky magazine, the hip-hop mogul was asked about his alleged affiliation with the Illuminati, in which he claimed his accusers just can’t handle his success.
“It may sound a little arrogant, but I just think people can’t handle when somebody else is successful,” Jay said in the mag’s feature. “Something has gotta be wrong; you gotta be down with some higher power. And I guess when someone else is successful, it makes you feel like maybe you’re a failure. So it can’t be you, it has to be some other force.”
