50 Cent Illuminati50 Cent was spotted recently sporting a Illuminati-branded fitted cap, sparking controversy among conspiracy theorists about whether the rap superstar was a member ... or not.

For those who aren't familiar with the Illuminati and/or have been living under a rock, it is a alleged secret society formed in the late 1700s, consisting of the most influential and powerful people in the world who all work together for one common goal: a one world government, aka a "New World Order."

It was also the organization who Tom Hanks was going after in his recent film, "Angels & Demons."

Following photos of him sporting the game, and theorists speculating whether or not he was connected to the elite group, E! Online took their questions to 50 Cent's rep but received no reply.

So, they asked noted author and secret societies expert, Jordan Maxwell, who said the likelihood that 50 was accepted in the inner-circle of the world's elite was ludicrous.

"The people who are really important on this planet you will never know who they are," Maxwell told E!. "They're not out doing hip-hop or [being] movie stars or anything else. They're just business people who are far more successful than anybody else."

As far as the possibility that Illuminati issues fitteds, Maxwell said: "Heavans no."

Aside from 50 Cent, other hip-hop stars rumored to be Illuminati affiliated is Kanye West and Jay-Z, both of whom have denied any affiliation.
