Watch Lil Wayne Tear Through Emotional ‘Don’t Cry’ on ‘Colbert’
Lil Wayne unleashed a potent rendition of his Carter V cut “Don’t Cry” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Wednesday.
The performance found Wayne tearing through the track’s brutally honest bars about life, death, success and failure: “It was dark, now the sun back/ Hit me hard, but I punched back/ The wheels fell off, I rode the hubcap/ Is it suicide or it’s do or die?/ It’s newer days and it’s bluer skies.” After each torrential verse, Wayne unleashed the song’s howling chorus, belting, “Don’t cry” alongside a recording of accused domestic abuser and late rapper XXXTentacion.
