J. Cole Explains The Inspiration Behind “Crooked Smile”

Yesterday, J. Cole released his highly anticipated collaboration with TLC, “Crooked Smile”. Now, in an interview with Fuse, Cole explains the inspiration behind the record, saying, “I understand that I don’t have the Colgate. I didn’t have braces, and they definitely remind you, when you become somewhat known, they definitely make it a point to remind you about your flaws.” He later adds, “It’s giving people power to embrace they own flaws…and TLC is on it. How incredible is that?” Co-sign!
