â€œReconsider your war on drugsâ€ is the inspirational but controversial message behind J. Coleâ€™s new video â€˜Crooked Smileâ€™ feat. TLC.Â â€˜Crooked Smileâ€™ is a popular single off of J. Coleâ€™s sophomore album â€˜Born Sinnerâ€™ which is doing really well right now.
In this video a father, who is played by J. Cole, is portrayed as a drug dealer.Â When authorities come to raid his home the daughter is accidentally killed by cops in what seems to be an invasion gone wrong.
The video brings out a lot of emotions on alleged drug dealers and this countryâ€™s war on drugs. And actually based on a true story, the video tries to shed some light on the controversial killing of a 7 yr. old Detroit, Michigan girl.
Itâ€™s about a kid, Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was shot and killed May 16, 2010 during a raid by the Detroit Police Departmentâ€™s Special Response Team, which led to a federal investigation of the incident.
There is a very deep message behind the entire song if you listen to the words carefully.
