J. Cole Shoots ‘Crooked Smile’ Video in Brooklyn
It looks like the next single from J. Cole‘s No. 1 album, ‘Born Sinner,’ will be the body-conscious ode ‘Crooked Smile.’ The Roc Nation superstar spent the last couple of days shooting the video for the song in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The visual is being helmed by director Aristotle Torres, who, ironically, once managed J. Cole. Coincidentally, Aristotle also shot Nas‘ videos for ‘The Don’ and ‘Bye Baby.’ Here’s hoping that Aristotle gets a chance to direct a video for their monumental collaborative song, ‘Let Nas Down (Remix)’.
Looking through the photos, it appears that Hollywood Cole is keeping things simple with his ‘Crooked Smile’ video. The North Carolina rhyme-spitter wears a crispy white T-shirt, camouflage shorts and the brand new Shadow Grey Air Jordan 1 sneakers.
We’re not mad at J. Cole for picking ‘Crooked Smile’ as his next single. It’s an uplifting song that is surely needed in hip-hop right now.
