Young Deuces really made a tear-jerker that tugs at your heartstrings when he made his song “The Lie.” The video starts off with a Father taking his daughter to school, telling her how great her day will be and how after school they are going to get crab legs (I thought that was a nice added touch because I felt that, crab legs are bomb lol). While his daughter is at school, the Dad is running around Milwaukee when suddenly he gets pulled over for a traffic stop, something a lot of us fear now, since we have no idea how a simple stop could play out. Unfortunately in the video, the Father’s stop didn’t end well. After school, the daughter waits for him to pick her up, but eventually goes to look for him, only to find him in his car surrounded by yellow tape.
I appreciate videos like this that highlight the issues going on in our communities rather than always talking about the same ol’ “getting money and hoes” narrative that usually gets highlighted more. Visuals like this have a lot more power and holds more weight. I thought it was a dope creative expression. Good job, Young Deuces.
Take a look at the video and tell us what you think!
