Took chances, slow dance with the devil bitch
When he was younger, Cole was careless and took big risks almost everyday, comparing his lifestyle to the popular euphemism of “dancing with the devil,” which is a risky thing to do. Immortal Technique has a song, “Dance with the Devil,” that talks about the same topic. Cole could also be referring to taking a chance with “going mainstream” (dealing with shady people and living a flashy lifestyle).
