Every so often, I have to ask myself, “Self, how did I not know about this until now?” This is one of those every-so-often times.
About a month ago, Shay DM’d me on Twitter, asking me if I’d seen this video. Which only caused me to ask myself that very same question. Except I replaced “if I’d” with “how haven’t I.” So, it wasn’t the very same question at all, actually. D’ah well.
I had seen various people use the phrase “Whyyyyy must I cry!” all up and through the internets, but never really knew where it was from. I’m still not totally sure, but I have a feeling that the following video at least contributed to the meme…
“Why must I cry” by Reh Dogg
Why Must I Give You Live Commentary:
0:09 – Oh, lawd here we go again with these non-sanging sangin’ niccas!
0:13 – Is this mofo sitting in front of an aquarium from “The Real World” house? And why he so sweaty? Or did he just get OUT of the aquarium and he’s sitting in front of it so it makes sense? Which, if he did… it still wouldn’t make sense.
0:19 – O_O Ok, so I know air-body sings in the shower, but can we keep this as one of those universal assumptions?! Ya’ll don’t have to put it in YouTube form! We believe you. You do not need NAN more people.
0:24 – Ah, the superb lip-synch skills. He closed his mouf long before he stopped singing, “whyyyyy.”
0:31 – LAWD. I’m already mad he keep asking “why must I cry” over and over… not just because of the useless repetition, but because I’M the one who should be crying. He is SUDSY right now. *flings self off curb*
0:36 – *hollers* He did a shoulder shimmy?! Kneegrow, do you NOT know that most household accidents are caused in the bathroom? You betta be careful, yo.
0:38 – He look like he tryin’ to read the bottom line of an eye chart. He squintin’ dinna MUG. *waits for plethora of jokes about MY eyes* -_-
0:41 – Dude look like a hood Paul Bunyan running through the dayum woods for no gottdayum reason.
0:48 – LMAO @ him giving the quick “you got this? ok.” look at the camera. Nicca, I SEE YOU!
0:58 – Boy, ask WHY you got leopard seat covers since you in question-mode. Hell.
1:07 – *DEAD* You saw how his voice got all loud yet his face remained unfazed?! THAT is what I call acting! ( ._.)
1:09 – This clip of him giving dap to some random nicca is included because…?
1:17 – WHAT is he doing? Is this mock military training? And is he seriously singing about a CHILD who stole from him?
1:27 – OH! He talmbout his lost homie. Ah, ok. Lawd. It’s just, this makes so much nonsense, I wouldn’t put it past folks, ya know? I have a professional HISTORY of watching ratchet ish. Ax about me. Yes, ax. Regardless, if I were a spirit chillin’ up in heaven (shut up, even as ratchet as I am, I GOTS me a VIP ticket. Be mad.), I’d be haunting Reh Dogg like, “You know you my nicca right? I’mma need you to stop it. NOW. Oh… and boo!”
1:41- Yo, this dude just having a dayum conversation now. He is straight just talking.
1:45 – Um. The way he LEAPED to grabbed that gun, yo. And the sound effects! Did they use “WomanSlappingMan3″ in the list? Because that’s what that ish sounded like.
2:02 – Harpo, who dis man? And why Reh Dogg just say, “understand” at the end? Sounded all outta place. LOL
2:06 – FURTHERMORE, if he is singing to his lost homie, WHY include the shower scene? Forget all those other “whys”, let’s start with that.
2:26 – NICCA YOU CRYING BECAUSE YOU PUTTING SOAP SUDS ALL UP IN YOUR EYES.
2:28 – What in the subliminal messaging hell was that quick shot?
2:55 – Whoever Tammie Starr is, she lookin’ like “o_____O” right about now.
3:11 – WAYMENT. Wait the frick-and-frack a minute. Did he just throw in baby mama drama into this song?!! *falls the eff out*
3:15 – Here’s a tip. Pointing a gun to your head whilst singing about having twins on the way is not the bidness.
3:43 – Oh gawd, he’s really crying now. You heard the anguish in that “why?!”
3:56 – LOL, he almost fell out that tree! He’ll be crying fo’ sho’ then!
3:59 – Wow, watch out, Jadakiss. Finding out why Rehh Dogg must cry trumps ALL those politically/socially charged “why” questions you asked way back when. Sorry, boo.
Ya’ll KNOW you got this in your head, Pinchers! WHYMUSTICRY WHYMUSTICRY WHY. You’re welcome and I’m sorry. Have a great weekend!
Love ya like Tyler Perry loves dressing in drag,
