Watsky is an accomplished writer, performer and rap wunderkind, but he really just wants to cry more…

In this APTV exclusive, Watsky gives a sneak preview of his highly anticipated new record, COMPLAINT and explains why his ultimate goal in music is to be authentic to himself and give his fans music to listen to in the car. Watsky also reminisces his first kiss, being cut from the freshman basketball team and waxes poetic about 50 Cent.
