Is it even a word?

I heard it in this song (last sentence) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yfi6h14QjcI&t=3m43s

No, that's a bad transcription. The actual word being sung is sucieza, which isn't proper Spanish also, but it's derived from sucio [dirty]. So the line:

Te ha jugado una sucieza no merece tu perdón.

can be roughly translated as:

She played you dirty, she doesn't deserve your forgiveness.

As already said, it's not proper Spanish. The proper noun derived from adjective "sucio" would be "suciedad". Even then, one wouldn't say it like that. Perhaps "Te ha jugado una vileza" or "Te ha jugado una mala pasada".
