Did Lil Wayne sell his soul for rock n' roll???

Lil-Wayne-Wallpapers-2011-3Like many hip hop aficionados, I am sure you have found yourself tapping your toes to whatever the latest auto-tuned musical monstrosity Lil Wayne shat out for all of our auditory pleasures wondering exactly what this man had to do to convince all of us that this nonsense is good…

Well, it turns out the answer is as cliché as it could be…

It just cost him his soul.

Here’s a story ‘bout a nigga named Weezy…

While driving home from the golf course with my brother, a Lil Wayne song happened to come on the radio that I kind of like (“I Get Money”). I turned up the volume and started slouching in my chair (Because when I listen to rap, I pretend I am on my way to a drive by…).

Never one to turn up his nose to a tight beat and a decent flow, my brother was taken by the song and asked who the artist was and- upon hearing the name of Weezy- changed his opinion on the song. He then proceeded to inform me that he had heard that Lil Wayne had sold his soul to the devil in order to garner the success that he has and because of that he (my brother) refused to listen to his demon penned hits.

Upon returning home from the outing, I decided to do a little research into these rumors my brother had shared with me.

There were some silly claims that Wayne had sold his soul, but nothing more substantial that folks who were not fans of his work using the demonic possession angle to explain how someone of such obviously lacking talents managed to garner the level of success that he managed to achieve.

But then I came across this bit from Creepy Pasta

demon.jpg.w560h420In his entry, Creepy alleges that a source close to the Yong Money leader gave him all the dirt on the whole “Lil Wayne selling his soul to Satan” nonsense after a brief (and strange) encounter he had with the rising musical star.

He claims:

When I was introduced to him by the bodyguards, he was sitting down reading his Bible. He got up and greeted me and he introduced me to the rest of the Young Money group. Drake shook my hand then walked out of sight. Nicki Minaj gave me a hug and I won’t lie, I wish that hug lasted forever. After shaking the rest of the group's hands and chatting briefly with Tyga, I sat down to talk with Lil Wayne. We discussed religion and our faith(for those who don't know Lil Wayne is a practicing Christian), the background stories behind his songs(the song” Lollipop” was actually a dare by one of the song's producers, Jim Jonsin, to make a song about blow jobs to jokingly release as a single), and our lives.

 

I was impressed by how intelligent this man really is, he’s had a rough life growing up in the Hollygrove area of New Orleans and he says he’s blessed to have a career as successful as his. I decided after about 30 minutes of chatting to bring up “I Feel Like Dying”. As I brought it up, his face went from happy and cheerful to just drained of its color, like if something terrified him. As we talked about the song, he had told me he was in a hard time in his life when he wrote the song, that without drugs he felt like he would die, and then he tried to change the subject. When I asked about the rumors of a hidden message in the song, he became visibly furious and denied that there was a hidden message. When I told him I had sources saying otherwise, he was now in the point of tears and told me to get the fuck out. As security was escorting me out, I managed to catch a glimpse of him clutching his Bible and chanting Bible verses over and over again.

satan picWe will get back to the allegations in a moment, but before we get too sidetracked it is important for you to familiarize yourself with the subjects at hand... namely the “I Feel Like Dying” song.  Released in 2007 off of one of his many mix tapes, “I Feel Like Dying” is a song where Weezy speaks openly and freely about his drug abuse.

If you haven’t enjoyed this audio delight, give it a minute (it’s actually not a bad track…):

 

 

 


It’s not bad- a trippy, obviously drug influenced love song written by Wayne (a known drug user who is known for smoking seemingly endless blunts and sipping from bottomless goblets of Sizzurp [a potent mix of grape flavored codeine syrup and either champagne or Red Bull]). For the record, Lil Wayne has acknowledged that the song is about his drug use and abuse and that he did not remember exactly how or when he recorded the song (alleging he was high as a kite when the recording was made).


But Creepy Pasta heard a different story…

After some time has passed, I managed to get ahold of Cool and Dre. If you dont know who they are, they are hip hop producers who have produced many of Lil Wayne's songs. I chatted with them and as I mentioned the supposed hidden message in “I Feel Like Dying”, Dre just stomped out of the room and Cool just stood there with a frozen expression on his face. When I asked once again, he whispered to me "I can't explain here, they'll hear us, follow me." When I asked who was "they", he told me to follow him to his car. When we got to it, told me to NEVER mention what he was gonna tell me to anybody then he started the car and started driving. After fifteen minutes of driving and Cool being silent, we arrived at a large church. The church was already having sessions as I could see a swarm of people gathering inside. I followed Cool into the church and he said "Alright, they can't hear us here." When I asked who, he replied with "The real producers of that song." Apparently shortly before Lil Wayne's popularity exploded, he made a pact with a demon named Murmur, that in exchange for his soul, finding a few more people to make the same pact, and allowing him to possess Lil Wayne for fs_lilwayne_bloga short period of time, he would make him one of the the most popular rappers alive and make sure his career prospers.

Lil Wayne agreed and he started looking for new talent to recruit. He said that Murmur was the true writer of the song and several of his minions were actually the producers. When Lil Wayne recorded the song, it wasn't really him; it was Murmur possessing him for the sole purpose of making the song reality. Lil Wayne has no memory of recording the song and after a few years found new recruits. Those new recruits? We know them as Young Money. All of the rappers in the Young Money group have made the same pact and Lil Wayne's deal was complete. Murmur kept his part of the deal and helped Lil Wayne's and the Young Money group's careers become successful. However Lil Wayne now regrets the deal because he now fears for his soul and now regularly attends church, prays fanatically, and reads his Bible every chance he gets, hoping it will be enough for God to forgive him and take back the deal.

Cool then said he remembers one time going to a studio session when the song was being recorded. He said Murmur looked like a soldier with a uniform that resembled the French Foreign Legion. The color of the uniform however was a mixture of red, black, and orange, like fire and brimstone colors. His face looked strangely human, not anything you'd expect a demon to look like but his pupils were pure black. Right next to him was a strange animal next to him that resembled a giant vulture, he said that it kept staring at him and he got extremely uncomfortable. He said Murmur spoke to Lil Wayne briefly before turning into a floating pile of dust and violently flying inside Lil Wayne's mouth. The force knocked him down and he started violently choking and vomiting some foul smelling yellow substance. When it ended, Lil Wayne/Murmur went to the recording booth and started recording the normal song.

The larger demon looked at him with glaring bloodshot eyes and said in a low booming voice to leave the room. Then Cool told me "Now you know everything, never tell anybody you heard this from me, everybody involved in the making of that song is not supposed to reveal its true origins. That’s why Lil Wayne gets aggressive when asked about it, they will drag us straight to hell if we ever told. Do you listen to Lil Wayne or the other Young Money artists? Their lyrics aren't good, in fact, they flat out suck. It's because of the pact is why they are so successful, the forces of hell make sure the weak minded people who listen to their music gets sucked in and asks for more…”

And the proof being offered by Creepy Pasta for this wild story of demon messages, soul selling, and Satanism???

Give it a listen (but beware… it will haunt your freaking dreams….)


I imagine if you play any song backwards, it would sound off putting. And perhaps, an ear looking for something to be upset about in those tumblr_ltra6kLk9s1qhkzjto1_500jumbled word sounds could find a message…

But I didn’t find one.

My skin crawled, my eyes watered, and I turned on the lights in the room I am sitting in (even typing this, a whole fifteen minutes after listening to it, I still have goose bumps recollecting it) just from the unsettled feeling that song caused deep within me…

But I didn’t hear no demon named Murmur spewing death to mankind…

Just that creepy chorus going on and on and on…

Sometimes you need a demon to fight the Devil…

This isn’t the first time a popular artist was accused of evoking the powers of Satan in order to garner their inexplicable rise to power… They had been saying this since Robert Johnson (the bluesman who was said to have sold his soul for his amazing abilities on the guitar).

They said the same things about KISS, Judas Priest, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis… So this isn’t the worst thing you could say about Lil Wayne (those rumors about him being some crazed inmate’s ladyboy while spending time in the joint is the worst thing you could say about Wayne…).

Hell, it’s the same thing they said about Socrates (and we study him in school no matter what the curriculum…). It’s why they killed him, to be exact.

And it’s not like this guy has a ton of proof to this otherwise entertaining story…

For all we know, it is just an elaborate piece of fan fiction.

And the noises heard while the song was tracked in reverse could very well have been nothing more that coincidence.

But then again, that god awful vision of what Lil Wayne feels Rock Music sounds like (he feels it sounds like the guitar based action movies soundtracks of the 80s) sold like tens of thousands of copies in an era where no one buys music…

And who else but the Dark Lord could have made that happen.
