Where did I say that (Free)Masonry is "evil" or anything of the sort? It's like this. When I first got into reading about conspiracies and conspiracy theories, I thought that (Free)Masonry itself was "evil". I even posted here back then. That was the past. Then when I took the N.O.I. and 5% teachings literally, I believed that Caucus-Asian (Free)Masons were the 10% white devil cavemen who were given (Free)Masonry and tricknowledgy by Musa(Moses), so that they could clean themselves up instead of living a savage life and also master the Original Man for a short time. Then when I believed the Gnostic teachings without having my own Gnosis, I believed that "Black Lodge" (Free)Masons were "evil" and that "White Lodge" (Free)Masons were "good". Now I basically see (Free)Masonry as a neutral platform for gaining knowledge, no more "evil" than the rest of the Demiurge's(GAOTU) physical creation.
As for prominent Hip-Hop artists being (Free)Masons, you could ask a Hip-Hop artist who is one openly, and who has talked to a lot of other Hip-Hop artists who are (Free)Masons. Wu Tang affiliate G-Clef da Mad Komposa is the one who told us about half of the list of Hip-Hop (Free)Masons that I mentioned a page or two back. I believe he still posts on a forum that he owns and operates.

This is a non-sequitar argument. I'm going to comment on certain points you made, but first I must say this. Just because a group of people has some custom doesn't mean they are the only ones who use it.
I don't get where you say "no snitching" is a Masonic thing. We instruct our members to keep the secrets they have been entrusted with. If you are alluding to that we don't snitch to the authorities if a brother has a committed a crime, you are even more wrong.
The whole "dame" comment isn't even related to Freemasonry. The clothing comment made me laugh.
The "G" does not mean generativity. I guess the obvious answer is just too obvious for you. There is no sexuality in Freemasonry.
Again, for the millionth time, there is no god of Freemasonry. There is only the God the individual brother worships. We allow men of every faith in and do not push one religious view or the other; religion and politics is not to be spoken about in the Lodge.
You seem to have a lot of sexual leaning beliefs about the Freemasons? Do you think we are a sexual cult? We are not.
You are desperately trying to connect dots (style, fly, etc) to Freemasonry. Probably, might be, these are not words that impress upon the reader that Freemasonry is "indeed" connected to hip-hop. You speak of absolutes, but back it up using possibilities and coincidences.
"Props" are used during Masonic rituals.
So Freemasonry is the only group that uses props? No one else in the entire world uses props? This is just more evidence for my non-sequitar statement.
You've basically taken a few words that may be Masonic and tried to tie them to hip-hop. From reading your thread I can tell you don't know the true meaning of anything Masonic, but you've still tried to connect some dots.
A "master of ceremonies" is present at every Masonic lodge.
What position is this called?
The phrase "It's on" probably comes from "Jah-Bul-On."
How does "It's on" probably comes from "Jah-Bul-On."? How? You are reaching here?
The burning of incense comes from the same initiation rite.
Churches do this too.
And how is Freemasonry "partially" a sun-worshipping cult? How do you partially worship?

Boaz and Jachin are in the Bible so using your thinking process hip-hop comes from the Bible.
Blue is the color for Craft Masonry (the Blue Lodge) because the color blue denotes loyalty. The Military Intelligence Corps of the US Army uses Blue as their color.
You can't use probabilities to show absolutes, it's a not a logical argument.
The phrase "I am that I am" also comes from the Bible; Exodus 3:14 (KJV)
Actually I'm not wrong about no snitching. I'm sure you've heard of the "blue wall of silence," as well as the Sean Bell case.
Actually yeah the G does mean generativity. Saying that "there is no sexuality in Freemasonry" is a typical denial argument.
If religion is not spoken about in the lodge then why is so much about Freemasonry ripped out of the Bible? And why is there a "Masonic Bible" to begin with?
Actually, Freemasonry is a sex cult.
You are misquoting me, which is typical.
You misspelled "non-sequitir"
He's called "the master of ceremonies"
The "On" is said to refer to Osiris, just like the video game "Virtual On"
Ok, if the Masonic lodge and the church burn incense, then why should "hip-hop heads" do it too? Wouldn't that be desecrating the act of burning incense?
The "sun" is a symbol of the erect penis. Instead of telling followers to worship the penis, they tell them to worship "the Son/Sun of God." The death of Jesus and his subsequent "resurrection" represent the death of the Sun.
Boaz and Jachin are supposedly the "pillars" of Solomon's Temple. I won't say what they really represent.
The New York Yankees also use the color blue
Yes, I said that.
