Wealth, jewelry, drugs, and more take center stage on Rick Ross and Jay Z’s latest collaboration, “The Devil Is a Lie.”
The Bawse released the new track from his forthcoming Mastermind album Thursday afternoon (Dec. 19), featuring over five minutes of predictably braggadocious verses and an obligatory “double cup” nod to “sizzurp” (aka codeine).
“F—-d the game raw when I came in it, gettin’ money ever since I came in it/You couldn’t stop me if you tried, motherf—a, ’cause the Devil is a lie,” Ross spits. “Big guns, big whips, rich n—a talking big s–t. Double cup gold wrist. Double up on that blow, b—h.”
Hov uses his turn at the mic to address rumors that he’s somehow affiliated with the Illuminati, declaring that the long-running fake story is basically the devil at work. “Oh it can’t be a n—a if a n—a rich/Oh it gotta be the devil, that’s some n—a s–t,” he raps, dedicating the rest of his guest spot to more gloating, name-dropping luxury brands, and quips like, “getting white money, but I’m still black.”
“The Devil Is a Lie,” is the second collaboration between the two this year, following Jay’s “F–kWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” off Magna Carta Holy Grail.
Rozay’s Mastermind will drop sometime next year.
