J. Cole – Crooked Smile (The Making Of)



“Crooked Smile” isn’t one of my favorites off of Born Sinner, but that’s okay.  It’s catchy as hell, and it’s only one part of a superb album.  Plus, the meaning behind it is meant to be positive; It would be unfair to say it doesn’t serve a purpose.  The radio hit relates to many people throughout the U.S., and the whole world in general.

In this short video, Jermaine explains the details behind what inspired the tune.  Whether it was random inspiration (meeting a girl he’d never seen, who eventually inspired the hook melody), or his own desire to succeed, you can tell he put everything into the lyrics he wrote.
