Coming from “Tha Carter V” is “Don’t Cry” featuring the late XXXTentacion, the first track on the album. This song mainly focuses on Lil Wayne’s emotions as he discusses many difficult situations in his life.
XXXtentacion’s vocals could be felt powerfully on the hook as he raised his pitch.
“Don’t Cry” appears to be somewhat inspired by X’s “Pain – BESTFRIEND,” as he uses a similar flow and some of the same lyrics.
Talent is God-given, be grateful
Fame is not a given, be humble
And conceit is self-driven, drive carefully
Stay in your own lane, seat buckled
And sometimes when there is no music
We toot our own horns, rum-bum-bum-bum
That woman carried the future
And Tunechi was born like “dun-dun-dun-dun”
Don’t call it a comeback
