J. Cole Embraces His ‘Crooked Smile’ in New Track Featuring TLC
J. Cole may have a ‘Crooked Smile,’ but he’s totally cool with it. The rapper is also totally cool with any lady friends having less-than-perfect chompers too — he wants a lady who embraces herself just the way she is. With this in mind, it seems like a natural progression to have the lives of TLC on the track, whose classic track ‘Unpretty’ is all about holding oneself in high-esteem and not letting the haters get ya down.
J. Cole kicks off his rhymes with, “They tell me I should fix my grill cause I got money now / I ain’t gon’ sit around and front like I ain’t thought about it / A perfect smile is more appealing but it’s funny how / My s— is crooked look at how far I done got without it.” J. Cole’s got a crooked smile and he could give a shiz! Homeboy is still talented and is truly embracing his little quirks — like we all should.
TLC sings the hook, “You’re the one that was trying to keep me way down / Like the sun, I know you know I found my way back round.” The ladies sound fabulous on the track and add the perfect R&B flair to the song.
This song is a great self-esteem boost for any man, woman or child. Having a bad hair day? Just listen to ‘Crooked Smile’ and let J. Cole ease your concerns. He raps, “And if you need a friend to pick you up, I’ll be around / And we can ride with the windows down, the music loud / I can tell you ain’t laughed in a while / But I wanna see that crooked smile.”
Embrace your flaws, it’s totally cool, guys.
