New Video: J.Cole – ‘Crooked Smile (Ft TLC)’

Published: Wednesday 18th Sep 2013 by David

From underdog to market leader.

Lacks a ring to it? Maybe- but it’d be an accurate way to describe J.Cole’s current positioning, washing his hands of his underdog status this year with the release of his #1 album ‘Born Sinner’ and becoming the standard many a Hip Hop act now has to live up to…at least on a commercial front.

Now, watch him use his rising star for good with the release of his new video for the single ‘Crooked Smile’.

A moving piece below…

      The same place where Beyonce is…Washed Up Land

        The only washed up one I see is the extraterrestrial splice creature you stan for. TLC is a legendary group and Beyonce will always be more relevant than your talentless ass fave….so sit!

    Who cares about where the washed-up TLC is??? The music video was exceptional and very artistic.

    tlc is not needed for the message. let the man be great! great message!

    How you do a TLC unpretty type song featuring TLC without TLC in the video? Makes no sense! Maybe them and J cole had conflicting schedules.

  9. Diamond Princess September 18, 2013

    Whoever said TLC don’t need to be in the video can drink a gallon of bleach now!!!

      Drake bought up all J. Cole CDs and it still not doing well. Looking at this video makes me wonder if Drake buying up all his own singles and chart spots.

    Does he want to be an actor or a rapper? can we save this for the movies… I mean really, i just wanted to jam.

  12. Scrappie September 18, 2013

    Cheap ass …..u could afford to fly TLC out for the video smhh….I will never watch this s*** again…….

    This video has a powerful message and was about Aiyana Jones (The little girl that was shot by a cop during a raid.) and y’all crying about some TLC? You f*** make me sick!

    The music video & song do not go together. It’s a great video but not for this song though. I heard J Cole had to re-shot the music video because he didn’t like the first version. TLC was in the music video in the first version. Hopefully they will release the other version…

  15. eqvilim September 19, 2013

    I agree that this music video and song do not go together. They should have had some sort of connect between the two. TLC should have been in it.

    My big issue is J.Cole misrepresenting the situation shown in the video. “War on drugs” had nothing to do with the death of the real little girl. It was actually a raid to find a murderer that was being harbored in that house. Not saying the death of the little girl was right or OK but when you are harboring a murderer in your house with small children, you are asking for trouble.
