Hip-hop will probably always be jokingly connected to the illuminati, and The Cleveland Show might have finally exposed the conspiracy. The show debuted their episode “Menace II Secret Society” on Fox last night and featured a star-studded cast of hip-hop and pop culture personalities. Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Questlove, and all lent their voices for a hilarious narrative of a supposed “hip hop illuminati.”

In the episode, Cleveland unveils a secret society of rappers and artists who control all the pop culture references that are fed to us. The illuminati is spearheaded by Kanye West (or, er “Kenny West” on the show), and includes Nicki, Bruno, Quest, and The members approach Cleveland after confessing Kenny West’s “ego got out of control,” and together they plot to end his hip hop career.
