I think I was shocked more by Nicki Minaj having a job in the music industry. How do musicians like her make it to the top when so many struggling artists who are much, much better never see fame's light of day?
Young Money Entertainment is an American record label founded by rapper Lil Wayne. Young Money's president is Lil Wayne's lifelong friend Mack Maine. The label is an imprint of Cash Money Records and is distributed by Universal Republic Records. Current artists include Lil Wayne, Drake, T-Pain, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Mack Maine, Jae Millz, Cory Gunz, Lil Twist, Gudda Gudda, Lil Chuckee, Short Dawg, T-Streets, and Shanell aka SnL. The label has released six #1 albums: Tha Carter III, Tha Carter IV, and I Am Not a Human Being by Lil Wayne, Thank Me Later and Take Care by Drake, and Pink Friday by Nicki Minaj.
The late great Bill Cooper once exposed the Free Masons to be an extremely racist organization. Black Free Masons (Prince Hall Masons) and lower level blue lodge members have little to know inkling as to who they are really worshipping. The upper echelons of free masons are worshipping Satan in order to get all that the prince of this world has to offer ie: money , power , and respect.
In 1775, an African-American named Prince Hall was initiated into an Irish Constitution military Lodge then in Boston, Massachusetts, along with fourteen other African-Americans, all of whom were free-born. When the military Lodge left North America, those fifteen men were given the authority to meet as a Lodge, form Processions on the days of the Saints John, and conduct Masonic funerals, but not to confer degrees, nor to do other Masonic work. In 1784, these individuals applied for, and obtained, a Lodge Warrant from the Premier Grand Lodge of England (GLE) and formed African Lodge, Number 459. When the UGLE was formed in 1813, all U.S.-based Lodges were stricken from their rolls – due largely to the War of 1812. Thus, separated from both UGLE and any concordantly recognised U.S. Grand Lodge, African Lodge re-titled itself as the African Lodge, Number 1 – and became a de facto "Grand Lodge" (this Lodge is not to be confused with the various Grand Lodges on the Continent of Africa). As with the rest of U.S. Freemasonry, Prince Hall Freemasonry soon grew and organised on a Grand Lodge system for each state. Widespread segregation in 19th- and early 20th-century North America made it difficult for African-Americans to join Lodges outside of Prince Hall jurisdictions – and impossible for inter-jurisdiction recognition between the parallel U.S. Masonic authorities. Prince Hall Masonry has always been regular in all respects except constitutional separation, and this separation has diminished in recent years. At present, Prince Hall Grand Lodges are recognised by some UGLE Concordant Grand Lodges and not by others, but they appear to be working toward full recognition, with UGLE granting at least some degree of recognition. There are a growing number of both Prince Hall Lodges and non-Prince Hall Lodges that have ethnically diverse membership.

You would think that if you make a thread like this you would have done a bit more research on the subject. Now then you get into bands that you will not see in the mainstream such as the ones that are in the OP.
Bands that are considered Black Metal do not get played on the radio or at least any station you don't have to pay for. Bands such as Venom,Deicide.Onslaught,and a host of other bands from all around the world would have been better to use than the ones used by the OP. I loved the Black Metal scene in the mid to late 80's and early 90's but eventually got older and tastes change, but still listen to it on occasion. That doesn't mean I worship Satan or does it?
The title implies "Mainstream" music. Music readily available to the masses on any pop top 40 station. That does not include death/heavy metal, so the examples used are legit And thus, the OP is right on target.

The Demiurge is the creator of the physical world, while the true God is the creator of all, above and separate from all our corrupt physicality and sin.
You see this is the problem many of you theists have, you just can't let your fantasy of an afterlife go. Here, you admit that the God of the Bible is an evil, fictitious entity, yet you STILL want to believe that there is a perfect all powerful true Christian Creator. Give it up!
