Jeezy Addresses Those Illuminati Rumors About His Album Cover

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Jeezy's album cover, which he released last week, takes a minimalist

approach to the often-gaudy undertaking: over a black background rests

the outline of a shield, and inside of that, a triangle, with an eye

inside. Though it seems like those symbols — particularly the eye —

fit the theme of the project, which is called Seen It All, they also

had plenty of people stirring up chatter about the Illuminati. Because

that's what always happens, apparently. "Lemme says this, first and

foremost: Do not get art and creativity confused with ignorance," the

rapper recently told Power 99 in Philadelphia. "I am a hardworking,

God-fearing man. I have no idea what an Illuminati is, and really

don't give a damn, 'cause it has nothing to do with me." Instead, he

says the art reflects the direction of the album. "I just wanted to do

something different and something bigger and that was my vision," he

continued. "It's kinda like a dark album so I just wanted it to have

that mystique about it. Something you wanted to keep as a collector's

edition." He also referenced Tupac's album cover for The Don

Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, which featured an illustration of the

late rapper being crucified. Like 'Pac, Jizzle wanted to go against

the grain and what people may have expected from a rap album cover (he

also spoke to MTV News about 'Pac influence on the album from a music

standpoint last month). Besides, he says, what really matters is the

music. "I'll tell you this: The album cover is whatever, but when you

open that album and play that album, then we ain't gon' have this

conversation. Cause that music is A1.''
