j cole crooked smile

J. Cole brings us another profound video/short-film in support of his Billboard-topping, gold-certified album, Born Sinner. “Crooked Smile” takes a very human look at the paths of two very different people: Cole, a kid trying to make his way by selling a little drugs, and a DEA agent, who’s assigned to arrest the rapper at his sister’s birthday party. The video ends with the message: “For Aiyana Stanley-Jones. And please consider your war on drugs.”
