Laugh Now, Cry Later is the 7th studio album by rapper Ice Cube, released on June 6, 2006. It is Ice Cube's first album to be released on his independently owned record label Lench Mob Records and his first studio album in six years. After spending the previous six years mainly doing movie projects, it could be considered a comeback album. The album debuted in the top five selling 144,000 copies in the first week. It means that you are only worried about the present and what makes you happy right now so laugh now, and then what ever comes later just comes. Bad or good, you will worry about it later, therefore cry later. It may also means that if you treat current things/issues/problems in a trivial way, you may regret it later.
