After lending his voice to Rick Ross’s “Maybach Music,” Jay-Z has appeared on Kanye’s “Monster,” Ross’ “Freemason,” “3 Kings” and “FuckwithMeYouKnowIGotIt” from this year’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail.”
Now the two MCs have teamed up again for Ross’ “The Devil Is A Lie” from his upcoming album, “Mastermind” due in stores in 2014. As with previous collaborations the theme of the song is the various roots of evil, money being the culprit and motivation.
“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.”
As with “Freemason” Jay takes the opportunity to address the persistent rumors that his success is owed to an affiliation with a secret society.
“Is it truth or it’s fiction, is it truth or it’s fiction. Is Hova atheist? I never f*ck with True Religion,” he raps. “Am I down with the devil cuz my roof come up missin’. Is that Lucifer juice in that two cup he sippin’. That’s D’usse baby welcome to the dark side.”
