Shedding crocodile tears

from 2Pac – Never Had A Friend Like Me Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Crocodile tears (or superficial sympathy) are a false or insincere display of emotion such as a hypocrite crying fake tears of grief. The expression comes from an ancient anecdote that crocodiles weep in order to lure their prey, or that they cry for the victims they are eating, first told in the Bibliotheca by Photios.
