There’s all types of conspiracy theories and stories regarding hip-hop’s elite and the secret society known as the Illuminati. One theory is that to become a member of this elusive group, you much show your allegiance/dedication by literally proving you would do anything to join their ranks — not limited to making a “blood sacrifice”, or killing someone close to you.
The world’s biggest celebrities, including Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna, as well as politicians and royalty like George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeith II, and even President Obama are among those who have been dogged by Illuminati rumors.
One aspiring rapper took things too far in late December, when he “sacrificed” his friend, in hopes of joining the Illuminati.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, 27-year-old Wafeeq Sabir El-Amin was obsessed with the lifestyle of hip-hop moguls, specifically 50 Cent. And believed he needed to sacrifice another human being to reach those levels of success. So, he is accused of shooting his friend in the head while telling him “you are my sacrifice.”
The rapper’s friend awoke on the night of December 26th to find him standing over him with a gun pointed at his head, telling him he needed to be sacrificed. He fired, at least, one shot which ricocheted off his friend’s head sending blood and bone fragments into his eye. Despite the injury, he managed to wrestle the gun away and shoot El-Amin in the stomach before he ran off.
Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Thomas L. Johnson said El-Amin was so high on weed when questioned he couldn’t remember what happened. Johnson described the assailant as a danger to the public.
A Henrico County judge scheduled El-Amin’s trial for June. His friend was not charged.
