J. Cole releases the music video for his latest single "Crooked Smile" featuring TLC.

Directed by Sheldon Candis, the R&B group do not appear in the music video. J. Cole plays a drug dealer who has his family over to celebrate his baby sister's birthday. During the night, DEA agents raid his house. His sister is accidentally shot and killed during the raid. The video itself is dedicated to Aiyana Stanley-Jones, a 7-year-old girl who was killed during a police raid in Detroit on May 16, 2010. Watch the touching tribute above.

"Crooked Smile" comes on Cole's sophomore album Born Sinner, which has sold 500K copies since being released on June 18. J. Cole is on tour with Wale right now, with remaining show dates listed here.
