“The Illuminati” is one theme that has undoubtedly gotten a lot of traction in the hip hop gossip mill. While it is unlikely that rappers are actually a part of the secret society, wondering at which rappers are a part of it and looking for imagery in videos makes things more interesting. If you ever wanted to feel like you were a member of the Illuminati, now is you chance. From February 13 to August 20, an interactive play featuring Prodigy of Mobb Deep will be available for curious folks to participate in.
The play focuses on an extravagant dinner hosted by the the Baron and Baroness of the infamous global-banking family, the Rothschilds held in 1972. A total of 30 “candidates” attend the play for $350 per ticket, who will be split up according to “animal kinship.” The evening will feature a performance by legendary Queens emcee Prodigy. The night’s events are described as follows:
We will whisk you away from the crowded, noisy city to our secluded estate in the woods for an Illuminati rite of passage created specifically for you.
A luxury limousine bus will pick up thirty illuminati candidates at a secret Manhattan location. They will be transported to our stately hunting lodge located on a secluded lake peninsula one hour outside of Manhattan. Champagne will flow freely en route while guests are briefed, masked and rehearsed (blindfolds must be worn for the final fifteen minutes of the trip in order to protect our privacy).
Our Surrealist soirée includes intricate cocktails, mouthwatering delicacies, inspiring music, devilish dancing and esoteric rituals. We welcome exploration at our hunting lodge. Some rooms may be locked, but Cook has been known to place keys in the crème brûlée. Winter months are spent dining on a lavish meal by an enormous fireplace large enough to cook not only Hansel and Gretel, but the witch too. After a lakeside fire ritual warm yourself with an exotic cocktail in the Conservatory, purify yourself a cedar sauna filled with medicinal herbs, or relax in a freshly lactated milk bath. Spring and Summer bring renewal as we dine alfresco beneath towering pines, engage in woodland rituals and sip champagne on the H.M.S. Charlotte.
You will be asked to choose an animal kinship.
