Initially I figured this was a mere misspelling for ilícito. That said, I pulled up the document it seems you got this from, and I'm more inclined to say it an odd calque from English (or Latin, given that's ultimately where we got it from) to Spanish.

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.
