Your game is twisted, want me enlisted in your usury

from Black Star – Thieves in the Night Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Usury is the practice of lending money at unreasonably high rates of interest. This may be a reference to credit card companies and banks charging people very high interest rates. But the larger point that people are making money off of others’s suffering is descriptive of the “twisted game” of US capitalism.

Usury also makes an internal rhyme across the three lines with the opening “More than usually.”
