My favorite track on J. Cole’s latest cd, (Born Sinner) is ‘Crooked Smile.’ The heartfelt song addresses self esteem and my favorite subject…learning to love yourself! This week the Roc Nation rapper released the visual for the song. Although the video has nothing to do with the actual song, it was still a powerful and thought provoking video. Cole reenacts the true story of 7 year old Aiyana Stanley-Jones who was fatally shot in the head by police, during a drug raid in her home. At the end of the video he urges police to re-think it’s war on drugs.
