JAY-Z is a Mason… What Does This Mean???

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, Rumor Control, Saturday Style


There is some controversy over a line from Jay-Z’s Run This Town lyrics. Some people suggest that he is referencing Masons. Well, we found out exactly what he’s speaking of when he says:

Run This Town:
Peace God… Uh! Uh! And ain’t nobody fresher, I’m in Maison Uh! Martin Margiela

Maison Martin Margiela is a clothing line. Actually, it’s one of Jay-Z’s favorite lines. The owner Martin Margiela has been in the fashion business since 1980, designing for lines such as Jean Paul Gaultier, his own and Hermès women’s line. He has helped turn the world of fashion upside-down with eccentric designs.

Martin Margiela and the Antwerp Six would carry on the work, revolting against the luxurious fashion world with garments of oversized proportions such as long arms, and with linings, seams and hems on the outside. The concept of deconstruction is important for the understanding of Martin Margiela’s fashion statement. Margiela famously redesigns by hand objects such as old wigs, canvases and silk scarves into couture garments.

He has never been a photographer and always keeps a low profile; they say he always remains backstage during all of his fashion events.

Maison Martin Margiela’s ultra-discreet trademark consists of a piece of cloth with the numbers 0-23. The badge is attached to the inside with its four little white pick stitches, exposed to the outside on unlined garments.

So, now maybe a lot of the rumors can be put to rest about Jay-Z being a “MASON.”

    Are you kidding me? Was there really a conversation about whether or not HOV is a Mason. C’mon man. Not saying he couldn’t be but use context clues: It’s almost always about the shoes. [sigh]

    Masons does believe in God…in order to be a mason you have to believe in a higher being….

    Hopefully he isn’t one. I’ve heard some interesting things about freemasonry, don’t know if they’re true or not but that’s not something I’d ever indulge in SMH

    why are people so quick to dismiss a certain theory as ‘conspiracy nut jobs’? all fiction is based on some form of fact, remember that.
