Jedi Mind Tricks

Jump to: navigation, search

Jedi Mind Tricks is a way to manipulate the weak-willed semi-underground rap group based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They can be considered the H. P. Lovecraft of hip-hop, known for both their cult following and for the downright nasty bigotry and general crankery that often appears in their work.

The group is fronted by rapper and renowned mouthbreather Vinnie Paz, a Muslim. Paz has a propensity for writing lyrics describing in vivid detail how much he enjoys punching faggots in the teeth and how homosexuality equals savagery.[1] He also likes to compare himself favorably to both Mussolini and Ayatollah Khomeini,[2] and has even stated he finds Iran's regime preferable to that of the US.[3] This massive heap of idiocy would not be complete without a few 9/11 conspiracy theories, AIDS denialism,[4] anti-fluoridation, and a particularly christballs insane variety of antivax lunacy (e.g. claiming that polio vaccines killed more people than they cured)[5] sprinkled on top for good measure. It's almost funny, as the group has often called for people to "not believe the fear mongers", albeit with regard to the aforementioned conspiracy stupidity, or otherwise the exact opposite to the fear mongers.

Fun facts[edit]

  • In 2010, a concert in Amsterdam was protested by a Dutch gay rights organization.[6]
  • Paz is known for his energetic stage presence, occasionally performing full shows standing still with his back turned to the audience.

  • Varg Vikernes, an even more loathsome musician, if such a thing is possible
