The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation

In April of 2012, a letter was posted to the blog Hip-Hop Is Read positing a breathtakingly simple and perfectly chilling explanation for this.

The letter’s anonymous author claimed to be a music industry “decision maker” who was present at an invite-only meeting of like types in 1991.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the new direction of rap music, at the behest of a small group of people—also present at the meeting—who represented the private prison industry. – listverse.com

The Letter:

Hello,

After more than 20 years, I’ve finally decided to tell the world what I witnessed in 1991, which I believe was one of the biggest turning point in popular music, and ultimately American society. I have struggled for a long time weighing the pros and cons of making this story public as I was reluctant to implicate the individuals who were present that day. So I’ve simply decided to leave out names and all the details that may risk my personal well being and that of those who were, like me, dragged into something they weren’t ready for.

Between the late 80′s and early 90’s, I was what you may call a “decision maker” with one of the more established company in the music industry. I came from Europe in the early 80’s and quickly established myself in the business. The industry was different back then. Since technology and media weren’t accessible to people like they are today, the industry had more control over the public and had the means to influence them anyway it wanted. This may explain why in early 1991, I was invited to attend a closed door meeting with a small group of music business insiders to discuss rap music’s new direction. Little did I know that we would be asked to participate in one of the most unethical and destructive business practice I’ve ever seen.

The meeting was held at a private residence on the outskirts of Los Angeles. I remember about 25 to 30 people being there, most of them familiar faces. Speaking to those I knew, we joked about the theme of the meeting as many of us did not care for rap music and failed to see the purpose of being invited to a private gathering to discuss its future. Among the attendees was a small group of unfamiliar faces who stayed to themselves and made no attempt to socialize beyond their circle. Based on their behavior and formal appearances, they didn’t seem to be in our industry. Our casual chatter was interrupted when we were asked to sign a confidentiality agreement preventing us from publicly discussing the information presented during the meeting. Needless to say, this intrigued and in some cases disturbed many of us. The agreement was only a page long but very clear on the matter and consequences which stated that violating the terms would result in job termination. We asked several people what this meeting was about and the reason for such secrecy but couldn’t find anyone who had answers for us. A few people refused to sign and walked out. No one stopped them. I was tempted to follow but curiosity got the best of me. A man who was part of the “unfamiliar” group collected the agreements from us.

Quickly after the meeting began, one of my industry colleagues (who shall remain nameless like everyone else) thanked us for attending. He then gave the floor to a man who only introduced himself by first name and gave no further details about his personal background. I think he was the owner of the residence but it was never confirmed. He briefly praised all of us for the success we had achieved in our industry and congratulated us for being selected as part of this small group of “decision makers”. At this point I begin to feel slightly uncomfortable at the strangeness of this gathering. The subject quickly changed as the speaker went on to tell us that the respective companies we represented had invested in a very profitable industry which could become even more rewarding with our active involvement. He explained that the companies we work for had invested millions into the building of privately owned prisons and that our positions of influence in the music industry would actually impact the profitability of these investments. I remember many of us in the group immediately looking at each other in confusion. At the time, I didn’t know what a private prison was but I wasn’t the only one. Sure enough, someone asked what these prisons were and what any of this had to do with us. We were told that these prisons were built by privately owned companies who received funding from the government based on the number of inmates. The more inmates, the more money the government would pay these prisons. It was also made clear to us that since these prisons are privately owned, as they become publicly traded, we’d be able to buy shares. Most of us were taken back by this. Again, a couple of people asked what this had to do with us. At this point, my industry colleague who had first opened the meeting took the floor again and answered our questions. He told us that since our employers had become silent investors in this prison business, it was now in their interest to make sure that these prisons remained filled. Our job would be to help make this happen by marketing music which promotes criminal behavior, rap being the music of choice. He assured us that this would be a great situation for us because rap music was becoming an increasingly profitable market for our companies, and as employee, we’d also be able to buy personal stocks in these prisons. Immediately, silence came over the room. You could have heard a pin drop. I remember looking around to make sure I wasn’t dreaming and saw half of the people with dropped jaws. My daze was interrupted when someone shouted, “Is this a f****** joke?” At this point things became chaotic. Two of the men who were part of the “unfamiliar” group grabbed the man who shouted out and attempted to remove him from the house. A few of us, myself included, tried to intervene. One of them pulled out a gun and we all backed off. They separated us from the crowd and all four of us were escorted outside. My industry colleague who had opened the meeting earlier hurried out to meet us and reminded us that we had signed agreement and would suffer the consequences of speaking about this publicly or even with those who attended the meeting. I asked him why he was involved with something this corrupt and he replied that it was bigger than the music business and nothing we’d want to challenge without risking consequences. We all protested and as he walked back into the house I remember word for word the last thing he said, “It’s out of my hands now. Remember you signed an agreement.” He then closed the door behind him. The men rushed us to our cars and actually watched until we drove off.

A million things were going through my mind as I drove away and I eventually decided to pull over and park on a side street in order to collect my thoughts. I replayed everything in my mind repeatedly and it all seemed very surreal to me. I was angry with myself for not having taken a more active role in questioning what had been presented to us. I’d like to believe the shock of it all is what suspended my better nature. After what seemed like an eternity, I was able to calm myself enough to make it home. I didn’t talk or call anyone that night. The next day back at the office, I was visibly out of it but blamed it on being under the weather. No one else in my department had been invited to the meeting and I felt a sense of guilt for not being able to share what I had witnessed. I thought about contacting the 3 others who wear kicked out of the house but I didn’t remember their names and thought that tracking them down would probably bring unwanted attention. I considered speaking out publicly at the risk of losing my job but I realized I’d probably be jeopardizing more than my job and I wasn’t willing to risk anything happening to my family. I thought about those men with guns and wondered who they were? I had been told that this was bigger than the music business and all I could do was let my imagination run free. There were no answers and no one to talk to. I tried to do a little bit of research on private prisons but didn’t uncover anything about the music business’ involvement. However, the information I did find confirmed how dangerous this prison business really was. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months. Eventually, it was as if the meeting had never taken place. It all seemed surreal. I became more reclusive and stopped going to any industry events unless professionally obligated to do so. On two occasions, I found myself attending the same function as my former colleague. Both times, our eyes met but nothing more was exchanged.

As the months passed, rap music had definitely changed direction. I was never a fan of it but even I could tell the difference. Rap acts that talked about politics or harmless fun were quickly fading away as gangster rap started dominating the airwaves. Only a few months had passed since the meeting but I suspect that the ideas presented that day had been successfully implemented. It was as if the order has been given to all major label executives. The music was climbing the charts and most companies when more than happy to capitalize on it. Each one was churning out their very own gangster rap acts on an assembly line. Everyone bought into it, consumers included. Violence and drug use became a central theme in most rap music. I spoke to a few of my peers in the industry to get their opinions on the new trend but was told repeatedly that it was all about supply and demand. Sadly many of them even expressed that the music reinforced their prejudice of minorities.

I officially quit the music business in 1993 but my heart had already left months before. I broke ties with the majority of my peers and removed myself from this thing I had once loved. I took some time off, returned to Europe for a few years, settled out of state, and lived a “quiet” life away from the world of entertainment. As the years passed, I managed to keep my secret, fearful of sharing it with the wrong person but also a little ashamed of not having had the balls to blow the whistle. But as rap got worse, my guilt grew. Fortunately, in the late 90’s, having the internet as a resource which wasn’t at my disposal in the early days made it easier for me to investigate what is now labeled the prison industrial complex. Now that I have a greater understanding of how private prisons operate, things make much more sense than they ever have. I see how the criminalization of rap music played a big part in promoting racial stereotypes and misguided so many impressionable young minds into adopting these glorified criminal behaviors which often lead to incarceration. Twenty years of guilt is a heavy load to carry but the least I can do now is to share my story, hoping that fans of rap music realize how they’ve been used for the past 2 decades. Although I plan on remaining anonymous for obvious reasons, my goal now is to get this information out to as many people as possible. Please help me spread the word. Hopefully, others who attended the meeting back in 1991 will be inspired by this and tell their own stories. Most importantly, if only one life has been touched by my story, I pray it makes the weight of my guilt a little more tolerable.

Thank you.

Conspiracy Theories

The Rothschild magazine predicted the coronavirus more than a year ago

“It’s hard to believe that two months ago this virus, which absorbed all the attention of the media, financial markets and politicians, was absolutely unknown to us,” said the Director General of the World Health Organization. The appearance of the killer virus was predicted a year ago.

While the normal flu annually kills over half a million people on the planet, there are no vaccines or effective medicines for the Chinese adversity. The WHO Secretary-General responsibly stated that it would take about a year and a half to develop a vaccine and specialized treatments. 

The first version on the coronavirus source was through bats and snakes. On February 7, they announced that they had found a potential intermediate host for the infection. This is an ancient pangolin that appeared on Earth 60 million years ago. The strain found in its body is 99% identical to that found in infected people. 

The 2019 Economist Cover

At the top of the cover there is a panda (China). From the East (where China is located) four “Horsemen of the Apocalypse” leave – Pestilence (coronavirus epidemic), War (Syria, Libya, Afghanistan), Hunger (food shortages due to epidemics and border closures), Death (from epidemics and wars) . But the most interesting detail on the cover is the image of a strange animal, which many be taken for an anteater. And only now it became clear that this is a pangolin. Given that the epidemic in China began in December 2019, the encrypted cover was prophetic. The main argument of this prophecy is the pangolin, whose appearance on the cover did not find any interpretation until February 7, 2020, when it was announced that the metagenomes of the pangolin, coronavirus and infected people are almost identical.

The influential British weekly The Economist is considered the global mouthpiece of the Rothschilds, the planet’s oldest financial clan. They are also called the secret rulers of the world, the top of the “golden billion.” According to cheap conspiracy theories, there are enough resources on Earth only for the world elite and the personnel serving it – the “golden billion”. The rest of the people of the world behind the scenes allegedly decided to counteract with the help of wars, hunger, epidemics. It turns out that the Rothschilds sent a message on a new epidemic by warning their supporters with an encrypted cover. Seemingly, everything converges – horsemen of the Apocalypse from the East, including the first, on a white horse – Death and the mysterious pangolin being the source of a terrible unknown infection. The vast majority of world residents have not even heard about these animals until the last days.

In that issue of forecasts, there was an alarming article on the trade in many billions of rare and endangered animals. Even elephants, tigers, lions and rhinos remain in danger.

In 2019, a lot of attention will be paid to the problem, the magazine wrote. Colombo will host a summit to protect these animals. There is a curious passage there. “One of the biggest breakthroughs is China’s ban on the sale of ivory and its products in 2018. But some ivory merchants have moved into a new market: pangolins. “These anteaters, valued for their meat and the alleged healing properties of the scales, are currently the best-selling endangered species in the world.”

According to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, pangolins are on the list of the most protected animals. Catching them is prohibited in China. But this does not save them from poachers. In Chinese folk medicine, pangolin scales are used to increase potency, treat many diseases, from asthma to cancer. Meat is considered a delicacy. In restaurants, they go for 60 – 70 dollars per kg, illegally of course

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, over the past ten years, poachers have caught more than 1 million pangolins in Asian and African forests and transported them to China and Vietnam. The meat was also illegally sold in the famous market in Wuhan. Employees of this market became the first patients with COVID-19 at the end of December.

So the appearance of the most popular animal among international smugglers on the cover of the Economist’s forecasts is justified but is the fact that the pangolin has become the alleged source of a new epidemic in the world a pure coincidence?

US military uses 5G network to secretly control the weather

Some members of the anti-5G movement have suspicions that the ultra-fast satellite network may be connected to a mysterious military facility that can control the weather.

The HAARP (High-Frequency Ionospheric Scattering Research Program) is a transmitting device used to study the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, located in Alaska. Its construction, funded by the military, was completed in 2007, but just seven years later, the program was closed and ownership of the HAARP and its capabilities were transferred to the University of Alaska.

For many years, conspiracy theorists have argued that the US government uses HAARP to control the weather, a statement repeatedly denied by officials and scientists. Some believe that the power of HAARP is beyond the scope of weather manipulation, claiming that it is capable of mass control of the mind through the emission of extremely powerful low-frequency signals, with ionospheric heaters (powerful radio waves) specifically targeted at people. Interest in HAARP has resumed due to growing tensions between Iran and the US, and some say the program is not only active, but also strengthened by the deployment of 5G. HAARP operates in the ionosphere, a layer of our atmosphere that is located at an altitude of 75 – 1000 km above the Earth’s surface.

In addition, an increasing number of 5G satellites are being launched into orbit, SpaceX plans to launch another 1,400 as part of its Starlink fleet by the end of 2020. The company has applied to launch another 30,000, while other technology giants such as Amazon and Facebook are also planning to send their own 5G satellites into space. The US Air Force Report 2025, published in 2008 with a 3,300-page report identifying future challenges for the US military, contains this intriguing paragraph: “The high-energy space laser system is considered a multi-megawatt chemical laser capable of hitting ground, air or space targets With lower power settings, it can turn off the enemy’s optics, perform passive sensing tasks, actively highlight the target with a laser, or even change the weather.

American activist and author Arthur Firstenberg is one of many 5G critics who believes that the Starlink fleet will harm the Earth’s electromagnetic environment, creating an “imminent threat to the extinction of all life on Earth,” he told the Daily Star. “Starlink satellites are located in the lowest layer of the magnetosphere called the ionosphere. The ionosphere, which is the source of energy for all life on Earth, will be exposed to the full power of satellite radiation instead of just a negligible fraction of the energy that goes through power lines located on the ground.”

However, he does not believe that satellites will be used in technology like HAARP, and believes that weather control is much less feasible than some people think. Global Research’s Makia Freeman has linked the growing 5G network with HAARP, claiming technology is part of a broader plot of surveillance and domination. “It is vital to understand the big picture of a grand conspiracy,” she writes. “All of these destructive and dangerous technologies – 5G, Wi-Fi, wireless radiation, HAARP, ionospheric heating, geoengineering, GMOs, etc. – are going to be woven into one giant integrated monitoring, command and control system.”

As one example of the interconnectedness of these technologies, she cites chemtrails (chemical trails), “filled with metal particles that 5G can use.” Other conspiracy theorists believe that 5G continues to control the atmosphere that HAARP produced prior to its closure in 2014. A 2017 plan to install 50,000 5G cell towers across California was met with massive protests from local residents, some of whom claimed to be part of a “geo-engineering” weather observation and control storyline.

What coronavirus has to do with the Davos economic forum logo?

With humanity living in fear of a possible pandemic of the deadly coronavirus virus, all conspiracy theories (or not) that go public, try to cover every possible association, event and situation, as crazy and unlikely as it may sound.

Therefore, the coronavirus is associated by some, with this year’s Davos logo and royal families.
