Dance with the Devil

Dance with the Devil

Immortal Technique

On “Dance with the Devil,” Immortal Technique spits a fiendish, yet remarkable, story that is allegedly based on a true life story. It tells the tale of a teenager who had large dreams and wanted to receive respect from those considered “real thugs”, and ends with a disturbing twist. The message that is sent to the listeners is to not dance with the devil; a metaphor for showing your willingness to commit crimes to raise your status. The sampled piano beat from the 1970 track “Theme from Love Story” gives the song a dark and sinister vibe.

The song includes the hidden track “Diabolical.”
