Dance With the Devil Lyrics - Immortal Technique



Review The Song (54)


[Verse 1]
I once knew a nigga whose real name was William
his primary concern, was making a million
being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen
he used to fuck moviestars and sniff coke in his dreams
a corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen
nigga never had a father and his mom was a (fiend)
she put the pipe down, but for every year she was sober
her sons heart simultaneously grew colder
he started hanging out selling bags in the projects
checking the young chicks, looking for hit and run prospects
he was fascinated by material objects
but he understood money ,never bought respect
he build a reputation cause he could hustle and steal
but got locked once it didn't hesitate to squeal
so criminals he chilled with didn't think he was real
you see me and niggaz like this have never been equal
I dont project my (insecurities) at other people
he feeded for props like addicts with pipes and needles
so he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil
a (feeble) minded young man with infinite (potential)
the product of a ghetto breed capatalistic mental
coincidentally dropped out of school to sell weed
dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed
but he was sick of selling trees and gave in to his greed

[Hook]
Everyone trying to be trife never face the consequences
you propably only did a month for minor offences
ask a nigga doing life if he had another chance
but then again there's always the wicked (that knew in advance)
dance forever with the devil on a (cold) cell block
but thats what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top
there's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot

[Verse 2]
So Billy started robbing niggaz, anything he could do
he'd get his respect back, in the eyes of his crew
starting fights over little shit, up on the block
stepped up to selling mothers and brothers the crack rock
working overtime for making money for the crack spot
hit the jackpot and wanted to move up to cocaine
for filling the scarface fantasy stuck in his brain
tired of the block niggaz treating him the same
he wanted to be major like the cut throats and the thugs
but when he tried to step to 'em, niggaz showed him no love
they told him any motherfucking coward can sell drugs
any bitch nigga with a gun, can bust slugs
any nigga with a red shirt can front like a blood
even Puffy smoked the motherfucker up in a club
but only a real thug can stab someone till they die
standing in front of them, staring straight into their eyes
Billy realized that these men were well guarded
and they wanted to test him, before business started
suggested raping a bitch to prove he was cold hearted
so now he had a choice between going back to his life
or making money with made men, up in the cife
his dreams about cars and ice, made him agree
a hardcore nigga is all he ever wanted to be
and so he met them friday night at a quarter to three

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
They drove around the projects slow while it was raining
smoking blunts, drinking and joking for entertainment
untill they saw a woman on the street walking alone
three in the morning, coming back from work, on her way home
and so they quietly got out the car and followed her
walking through the projects, the darkness swallowed her
they wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor
this is it kid now you got your chance to be raw
so Billy oaked her up and grapped the chick by the hair
and dragged her into a lobby that had nobody there
she struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs
they got to the roof and then held her down on the ground
screaming shut the fuck up and stop moving around
the shirt covered her face, but she screamed and (clawed)
so Billy stomped on the bitch, until he broken her jaw
the dirty bastards knew exactly what they were doing
they kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving
blood leaking through the cloth, she cried silently
and then they all proceeded to rape her violently
Billy was (made) to go first, but each of them took a turn
ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned
a broken jaw mumbled for God but they weren't concerned
when they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and (bruised)
one of them niggaz pulled out a brand new twenty-two
they told him that she was a witness of what she'd gone through
and if he killed her he was guaranteed a spot in the crew
he thought about it for a minute, she was practically dead
and so he leaned over and put the gun right to her head

[Sample from "Survival of the Fittest" by Mobb Deep]
I'm falling and I can't turn back
I'm falling and I can't turn back

[Verse 4]
Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life
he thought about the cocaine with the platinum and ice
and he felt strong standing along with his new brothers
cocked the gat to her head, and pulled back the shirt cover
but what he saw made him start the (cringe and stutter)
cuz he was starring into the eyes of his own mother
she looked back at him and cried, cause he had forsaken her
she cried more painfully, than when they were raping her
his whole world stopped, he couldn't even contemplate
his corruption had succesfully changed his fate
and he remembered how his mom used to come home late
working hard for nothing, cause now what was he worth
he turned away from the woman that had once given him birth
and crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared
but only the devil responded, cause god wasn't there
and right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold
and so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul
they say death take you to a better place but I doubt it
after that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it
and listen cause the story that I'm telling is true
cuz I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom too
and now the devil follows me everywhere that I go
infact I'm sure he's standing among one of you at my shows
and every street cypher listening to little thugs flowe
he could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn't know
the devil grows inside the hearts of the selfish and wicked
white, brown, yellow and black colored is not restricted
you have a self destructive destiny when your inflicted
and you'll be one of Gods children and fell from the top
there's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot
so when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never
because a dance with the devil might last you forever

Friend of Immortal Techique | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/6/11

Okay my friend and I is in 8th grade. He was creating this rap since 6th grade by writting the lyrics one by one in tech class. He is definitly a hardcore rapper. And if you guys don't believe me then I don't really care... He does'nt want anyone to know his name, but its micheal . Hes hispanic and black I think, and he is not ghetto, anx never been in these situations. All I know is that he got jumped by some stupid kids for no reason, mabe thats his inspiration? Who knows. We go to tsms, search the school up and maybe you'll find him...
Your the best Immortap Technique!

To the person who posted the comment below me
I agree that hip hop can express views on a multitude of things but what my problem with your comment is your use of the term "nigga", the fact that you use it so willingly and with no care is the reason why the word has lost its meaning and let it be ok for white people to say. you really have no idea how degrading that word is or if you did you sure wouldnt use it to call a friend that. I just thought id tell you this because if you continue to use it you will just continue to feed into the stereotype that black people are ignorant. Also "SPELL CHECK", for fuck sake dude you may be an idiot in person but don't let it reflect in text.

Review about DANCE WITH THE DEVIL | Reviewer: ganyula105 | 8/18/11

hip hop is about sharing ur views of anything you come across.i think the nigga's trynna show us that the music is real,of which,yes he does. the nigga's dope!! im a massive fan. he's music motivates me. and i must confess, no one can rap better than tech,nobody!!!! i'v heard bone thugs 'n harmony,pac and notorious those can rap but not like tech. i can even give my self up for tech,lol

... | Reviewer: holly | 10/17/10

I really like this song, It's better than some rappers who think they're the shit because they've got some money almost everyone has that. They think theyre cool because they have something as common as money. I like this rapper because he talks about stuff that evokes feeling in someone and brings you back to reality. I much prefer this song over someones elses music like Akon or 50 cent.

Shut the Fuk up | Reviewer: Loco | 4/16/10

Tek is a good and fantastic artist all his shit so far that i heard is an incredible work of art. But FUK all yall muthafukas need to get off his balls. much props to tekneek but pac moved the music industry much more. both them down ass real fuk rappers but once again GET OFF HIS DICK BYTCHS

This song and Tech | Reviewer: ty | 3/8/10

The first time i heard this song it haunted me, just the other day me and about 8 other friends were in a hotel room and we turned off all the lights at midnight and listened to this song, out of the 9 of us, about 6 hadnt heard it before. when it was over and we turned the lights back on, people were speechless, the girls thought it was messed up, but i think they got the message and this is a truely powerful song, after i first heard it about 6 months ago i started checking out techs other stuff, hes amazing, by far the best rapper i have ever heard, he doesnt even compare to my other favorite rappers (Biggy Tupac Nas) and they are amazing as well but thats how good Immortal Technique is, he revolutionizes rap, and music in general. if you dont like rap listen to this you might change your mind. if you do like rap and you dont like this i dont know what the fuck is wrong with you.

Shit talk to the idiots that talk shit | Reviewer: DARLENE | 12/10/09

I think about Immortal Technique and what he says all day he is a fucken genius! Anyone who thinks he is anything other than that... FUCK YOU! Nobody cares what you say. You aren't shit. Why would your coward ass even put a review, just to say something stupid. You shouldn't have written anything. Your too fucken retarded to understand what he is really saying. Or your racist! You should just keep your big mouth shut, what you have to say is not important. He is the BEST and sooner or later everyone living on this planet will come to realize that! I love you TECHNIQUE!!!

fuck this song and immortal technique | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/9/09

you people are fucking idiots. this song is based on an old short story. "a genius because of his command of the english language"? probably the stupidest thing i've ever read. "complex rhythms and scheme"? yes, aabb, and abab are as complex as they come. i know another rapper that depends heavily on them. his name is dr. seuss. get a clue.

Thug Life | Reviewer: Matt Dandorf | 9/6/09

The first time i ever heard of Immortal Technique seriously was the song, DANCE WITH THE DEVIL. i heard it several days ago with one of my boys and i have been hooked on the song ever since. IT is a Amazing rapper and his story is so legit. people can to relate to this stuff and it does happen, everyday everywhere. He reminds me of one my best friends with his style of writing, it's just knocks you back. this is gotta be one of the best rap songs i have ever heard in my life. i listen to a ton of rap, hip hop, that kinda of genre and he put tons of people to shame. i give IT much Props! i can't wait to here more of his music and if there is any other good songs by him that i need to hear, well someone let me know and i will fosho.

dance with the devil | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/09

immortal technique is a true lyricist...Hes a real rapper who talks about real shit and world struggles... unlike all these bitch rappers like lil wayne who talk about theyr cars and all theyr bitches...

Just sayin | Reviewer: Angelica | 5/22/09

I honestly did think he was involved with it but then i thought bout it and read his interview nd no he couldnt nd i was like y would he rell ppl he was involved but only he could answer that i love him i fall asleep to this very song

epic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/10/09

Immortal Technique is and absolute genius. His command over the english language is astounding and the use of complex rhythm in his flows is just as impressive. pair that with the fact the he isn't just another bitch rapper talking bout his bitches and money and instead talking about real world everyday shit and you can't not give this man his credit. and hey I'm from the bay area I respect what pac did but c'mon tech is way more real and he puts it all so eloquently that even i must admit that tech is way better than pac when it comes to real rappers
