WENTY-SEVEN YEAR OLD WAFEEQ SABIR EL-AMIN WAS OBSESSED WITH the gritty glamour of Hip Hop’s most famous playas, and he believed that in order to join their ranks he’d have to pay with his soul.
El-Amin believed that he’d have to ‘sacrifice’ a friend to be accepted by the so-called secret cult known as the Illuminati and ultimately achieve success as a rapper. So while he was high on pot last Dec. 26m he stood over a friend, declared aloud ‘you are my sacrifice,’ then pulled the trigger on a gun.
Per the Richmond-Times Dispatch:
“The victim awoke from a drowsy sleep to see El-Amin pointing a gun at his head and saying he needed to be sacrificed, according to the search warrant. The bullet ricocheted off the victim’s hand sending bone and skin fragments into his eye, according to the warrant, but the victim was able to get hold of the gun and shoot El-Amin in the stomach before he ran off.”
El-Amin was charged with malicious wounding and his trial has been set for June 26. Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Thomas L. Johnson said in court that the case “will delve into the hip-hop music culture and the notion that a secret society called the Illuminati has control over the success of some performers.”
The so-called secret sect has “been depicted as lurking in the shadows and pulling the strings and levers of power in dozens of novels, movies, television shows, comics, video games, and music videos,” according to Wikipedia. Conspiracy theorists claim that Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye West, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Ke$ha are all part of the cabal that seeks to gain power and wealth. These superstars feed the conspiracy theorists by using blatant Illuminati imagery in videos and performances. Will Jay and Bey be called as witnesses?
