J. Cole Sends Powerful Message in CROOKED SMILE Video
Released as the second single off his sophomore album Born Sinner, the video for J. Cole’s “Crooked Smile”(which features TLC who, unfortunately, do not appear in the video) is finally here and, personally, I love this video for its overall message. According to Rap-Up, A family gathering turns tragic in the cinematic clip, which was inspired by Aiyana Stanley-Jones, the 7-year-old girl who was killed in a Detroit drug raid in 2010. Cole plays the young girl’s big brother. His parents and sister come over to celebrate her birthday, but cops end up raiding the house at night, arresting Cole for drugs and shooting the innocent girl. Meanwhile, one of the police officers is shown in similar scenes with his daughter, who happens to be Cole’s sister’s classmate. Despite their different backgrounds, they’re more similar than they thought. Again, I love the message in this video and it is a MUST see. YOU can view the video below.
