Why Can’t I Cry Money Instead Of Tears?

Awful Records resident dad Father delivers new visuals for the screwiest cut on Young Hot Ebony, "Why Can't I Cry $," a winding, Eastern-influenced ballad that feels like early Clams Casino meets the RZA. He hopscotches over syllables as lazily as we've come to love, but is saying real shit: I hope that these niggas don't try to Tupac me/ The only one scared about being too poppin'/ But, no other option, being broke not a option, he vents, before the turn: Fuck that shit, get this dough. The whole thing unwinds over an intoxicating flute and the Awful crew mob over bamboo forests and Korean television shows—who's having more fun in front of a lens than these kids?
