J. Cole is one of my favorite artists and his latest single “crooked smile” is a deep video with meaningful content. The song alone speaks to a lot of the struggles of self-love and image issues in society. In the video J. Cole plays a young drug dealer who has his family’s house raided by police and in the process they shoot and kill his younger sister who is innocently exiting her bedroom. The video is to shed light on police murder and brutality and their “war on drugs that target mainly people of African Descent.
 
It also pays tribute to Aiyana Jones as it re-enacts the story of how she was shot and killed by police while she was lying on the couch and they were raiding her home in search of “Drugs”. They were filming a TV show and yet the video evidence was not acknowledged, The police proclaim it was an accident. Another case of injustice against our people. There isn’t enough awareness that can be brought to this topic and I want to salute J. Cole for doing so. True Artist Shit… Cole World… SanCopha!
