Gamble for your soul with the devil
People often coin the term “selling your soul to the Devil” as a illuminati reference. If you are familiar with the term “lucifers loose leaf” it simply means money because some people believe money is the root of all evil.
When you sell “your soul to the Devil” you are using other people’s misfortune to your advantage meaning in the world of music, if you rap about things you aren’t doing and people hear you and go do it and get arrested or die. Your still alive, chillin', they’re not so now you’re making money off of the expense of the listeners
There’s a popular phrase in music that says when you aren’t making songs for people and more for money you’ve “sold out” therefore you’ve sold your soul for lucifers loose leaf or sold your soul to the devil.
2Pac was aware of this, he said it in his interview in prison, that’s why he gave up Thug Life and began moving in a different direction after his album “Thug Life Vol. 1” and “Me Against the World”
