Instead of creating visuals that truly reflect the song, J. Cole pays tribute to Aiyana Stanley-Jones in his “Crooked Smile” video, the latest single from his album Born Sinner. In 2010, 7-year-old Aiyana was shot by a white police officer when the cops raided the home of a murder suspect.
In the video, J.Cole plays a drug dealer being watched by the DEA. One night with his family takes a turn for the worst when his home is raided by cops. I won’t give the entire video away, but I will say that it definitely feels like you’re watching a movie.
