We’re not so different, you and I.
That’s the message J. Cole sends in his new video for “Crooked Smile” off of his latest album Born Sinner. The song itself, which features TLC, takes a backseat to the short little drama that unfolds. As J. Cole whips up a birthday barbecue for his daughter, a DEA agent closes in on his target — who just happens to be J. Cole. The conflict is palpable, the theme is eternal.
J Cole’s sophomore album Born Sinner was certified gold last month, and he is currnetly out on the What Dreams May Come tour featuring Maybach Music Group member Wale.
