I don't know how many of you are rap fans, but if you're not, there's recently been a lot of conspiracy theory talk around rap in general... Especially when it comes to big names like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rick Ross, and the like. If you have time to waste, you can look up all of the crap that has been put in popular artists' videos over the last few years.

It really is getting out of control. I used to be a Jay-Z fan... Not anymore. I thought Kanye was a musical and artistic genius prior to his last album... Not anymore. If my iPod runs across one of their old songs I usually just change it now.

Anyway, I was also a huge fan of Kid Cudi, an artist heavily associated with Kanye and Jay-Z, prior to seeing this video... No longer a fan now and probably won't be listening to his music anymore...

This is the video slowed down to save you the time of watching the regular video, in which you won't be able to see all of the imagery he put in there. It's pretty creepy:

You stop being a fan of artists because of weird music videos? Are you kidding me? They're musicians, not directors.

The fact that you now dislike musical geniuses like Cudi and Kanye because of a video or two is absolutely absurd and stupid, IMO. I just don't get it, music has nothing to do with the videos.

It's because of the things they are putting in their music AND the videos. BTW, Cudi actually directed this video, so he did have complete input on what went into it.

Did you see how many symbols and images he put in that one video? He could be trying to be cute because of all the idiots wanting to scream everything is a conspiracy with secret society symbolism in their music every time a new song comes out... But, that just seems like overkill.

It'd be different if they came out and said what they're about and then let you make a decision about their work. But, I find it disturbing to put things like that in your video and flash them throughout to where consciously you can't process what they are in real-time.

Not to turn this into Tinderbox material, but I've stated my beliefs elsewhere on the board numerous times. I'm far from perfect, but it's jacked up that I can't enjoy music because someone I find to be a talented artist puts crap like this in videos and makes me re-think whether I should even listen to them anymore.

And Kanye had a gift from day one, but he's a different dude now. Just as Jay-Z changed around the Black Album. Kanye's entire Runaway video is based on Gnosticism, but he's not telling his young and impressionable audience that. Instead, they're taking all of that in unknowingly.

I'm just saying... Why do you have to be sneaky about it? Be up front and let people make a decision on your work from there... Unless you have a reason to be sneaky about it.

AND YES, that Puttin' On The Ritz video is among the creepiest things ever. So is the video for Cars by Gary Numan.

If today's society is looking towards people who talk into a microphone on stage while grabbing their crotch for answers... well I am afraid we deserve what we get.

I love Tool as well, but not for the lyrics... frankly I ignore them and focus on the music.

They're pretty much a big FU to religion, christianity in particular.

used to be more that... now it's more open, lateralus is more gnostic and 10,000 days is actually about maynard.

aenima is pretty nihilistic though.

Highly doubtful Kid Cudi is in the Illuminati...probably just trying to freak people out with the video, and he succeeded with that Youtube user.
