Despite the speculation about the Illuminati group, however, there is no concrete evidence that the group even exists.
Satanic Ties or Godly Signs? Fans Question Use of 'Occult' Symbols By Christian Artists Toby Mac, Lecrae, Andy Mineo
Skulls, triangle-shaped hand signs sometimes depicting the all-seeing eye of Egyptian god Horus and other symbolic gestures which many conspiracy theorists interpret as occult imagery, have been showing up in the music videos and artwork of prominent Christian artists such as Toby Mac, Lecrae and Andy Mineo, and fans are concerned that they might be affiliated with a secret society popularly known as the Illuminati — a shadow group they believe runs the world behind closed doors.
Lecrae triggered a frenzy online among Christian fans last month when he posed the triangular hand sign in KB's "Sideways" music video that resembled Jay Z's infamous Roc gesture. Conspiracy theorists such as YouTube's The Vigilant Christian say this is a Freemason and occult hand signal and some fans say Lecrae has connections to the dark side.
"Why is Lecrae throwing that kinda symbolism???? @ 2:32. This is no coincidence anymore [because] he did the same thing in his album 'Anomaly,'" said Bax Storm in the YouTube comments section for "Sideways." "All these symbols are believed to be of satanism which they are. I'm not hating on Lecrae. I'm just concerned."
"I think it's time to start questioning [Reach Records and Lecrae] even though they have Christian lyrics here and there," said user Kevin Smith. "This one's revealing of the wolf in sheep's clothing."
Lecrae, however, laughed off the accusations in a recent Rapzilla interview.
