Drake , a famous rapper who is associated with Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, who has appeared in an animated music video recently where he takes on the
role of the Pope, with Nicki Minaj as Hitler, has released a mixtape recently. Titled "If You're Reading This It's Already Too Late", it has 17
tracks on it. It's quite good, actually, in terms of music. I listened to it as soon as it dropped, but a few songs stood out to me as I listened to
it, and I couldn't help but feel uneasy and uncomfortable as I listened. I felt as if there was some sort of hidden message in these lyrics. Not only
that, but the cover art is of two hands praying with the number 6. This could be a reference to him being from Canada, an area code, or something of
that nature. But still, I got the nagging feeling that I needed to do some digging. So, I took a look at the lyrics. I'd like to show you an excerpt
from something that speaks of the signs and myths behind the antichrist idea itself.
Ironically enough, one of the songs on the mixtape is titled "10 bands".
The lyrics are not important. Let's look at how this connects to the bible.
"Revelation 17:12-13, 16-17 (HCSB) 12 The 10 horns you saw are 10 kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they will receive authority as kings
with the beast for one hour. 13 These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 16 The 10 horns you saw, and the beast,
will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, devour her flesh, and burn her up with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts
to carry out His plan by having one purpose and to give their kingdom to the beast until God’s words are accomplished."
This isn't actually that important but it's important that I mention it and it's connection. I'll allow you to draw your own conclusion with
In "6 God" the lyrics are a Drake claiming to be the 6 God, obviously.
"Most simply, the Bible says the Antichrist comes not pretending to be Jesus, the Son of God. He goes for a much bigger lie, namely that he is
Jesus' father, God himself:
2 Thessalonians 2:4 (HCSB) — He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary,
publicizing that he himself is God.
This appears to be the “strong delusion” that Paul refers to later in that same chapter:
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 (HCSB) — and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. ⌊They perish⌋ because they did not accept
the love of the truth in order to be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false"
In his song "Know Yourself" Drake begins telling a story by claiming he was "running through the 6 with my woes"
Revelation 8:13 (HCSB) — I looked again and heard an eagle flying high overhead, crying out in a loud voice, “Woe! Woe! Woe to those who live on
the earth, because of the remaining trumpet blasts that the three angels are about to sound!”"
I could spend hours pointing out connections between what the bible claims The Antichrist to be described like but in hindsight it doesn't really
Listen to the album. Draw your own conclusions. Comment. Tell me what you think.
Ironically as I was about to post this, I looked at the bottom of the page. Which for whatever reason, says "
" ? Is that an emoji? I'm
leaving it there.
