J. Cole "Crooked Smile" f/ TLC [Short Film]
In another edition of ICYMI, the new release that I think takes the cake for the past couple of days is J. Cole's short film for "Crooked Smile". I was expecting to see TLC in the video, but J. Cole had a different approach. Instead, there were no performance scenes and he told the story of himself as a drug dealer and a DEA agent after him. They each love their respective daughters but things take a sad turn when the DEA agent and his team take down Cole's character. The video is in memory of Aiyana Stanley-Jones, which if you read her story, you'll see how she was the inspiration. I'm sure I'm amongst many who felt emotional after taking this one in and so if you haven't seen it yet, I highly suggest you do when in the right mood. Brilliant job by Cole and director Sheldon Candis.
Rounding out the post are a trio of notable new tracks: Jhene Aiko & Childish Gambino combine for the former's first preview off her upcoming Sail Out EP, Logic & King Chip drop some bars in "Two Kings", and Ja Rule comes back from the pen with a new track called, um, "Fresh Out Da Pen".
