Our First Look Friday alum, Sir William James Stokes, better known as Sir the Baptist, has had a pretty solid 2016 and 2017. From signing to Roc Nation to selling out stadiums around the country — Sir has went from being homeless to being a budding superstar.

To commemorate the effort, the Chicago rapper-singer linked up with Mass Appeal to premiere his newest work, “Dance With The Devil,” which you can listen to below. Described as a song that shows “temptation,” Sir takes the voice of Lucifer to ask himself what he wants. An example of an answer that Sir provides is, “A thick ass with a crazy waist—it’s hard to let it go to waste.”

The Chicago-born preacher’s son has dropped his debut project, Saint or Sinner, on Atlantic Records yesterday (May 12). “In this industry these sirens in the water will drown you if you allow them to!” Sir said in a statement to Mass Appeal. “I’m praying for all the great men out there who are getting blood sucked by the venoms of this industry, women or otherwise.”
