Sex, drugs, and playin' dices, those are our favorite vices
These are what makes up the Sin City as they are all sinful acts. Cyhi with much of his verse is trying to allude that these things are holding you down or stopping you from reaching true potential but you don’t really mind or realize that it’s destroying you because it’s all fun (literally the definition of sin).
Not only that, but these are all severe and normally very common addictions. You can’t stop and you’re basically okay with it because that’s what sells in the city of sin. The undertone of the song is that if this is what the people are buying, then who’s selling it? (Cyhi and Travis, they’re on top watching this disgusting world unfold beneath)
