[Music Video] J. Cole - "Crooked Smile"

The video for "Power Trip" set the tone for J. Cole to take an abstract approach with each of the visuals from Born Sinner, and "Crooked Smile" is no exception. Dedicated to Aiyana Stanley-Jones, the 7 year old who was killed in a Detroit drug raid in 2010, Cole urges the country to reconsider its war on drugs.

[Album Stream] J. Cole - 'Born Sinner'

A Dollar And A Dream Secret Show Dates & Cities
Much like the reactive strategy used for Cole World: The Sideline StoryJ. Cole and his team responded quickly to the leak of his sophomore album Born Sinner with the launch of an official stream of the project. At the end of the day, whether you grab the leaked version or not, this is just one of those albums that you should purchase based on sheer quality alone.  June 18, 2013.

Stream Born Sinner below!

J. Cole ft. TLC - "Crooked Smile"

For every "Feds Watchin," there should be a "Crooked Smile." J. Cole, never one to shy away from substance, tackles deep subject matter while cracking a few jokes on himself in the process.

I know you (and clearly Cole himself) have seen the Cole World eyebrow and dental slander, and to make a single that superficially references his aesthetic flaws is genius. Let's not forget that J. Cole tapped T-Boz and Chili, R&B artists cemented in history, to contribute their vocals to the inspirational "Crooked Smile."

Cole's Born Sinner will battle Kanye's Yeezus on June 18th. With "Power Trip," "Niggas Know" and now this on the tracklist, my money's on NC's finest....

J. Cole - "Cole Summer"

J. Cole freebie to kick off the week? Yes please.

Although his sophomore album isn't set to hit stores until June 25, Cole was generous enough to let loose the "Nothing Even Matters" sampled vent "Cole Summer" last night. Listen below as the Roc Nation golden child follows in the footsteps of the boss as he pens a letter to the upcoming season he's bound to dominate.

[Music Video] J. Cole ft. Miguel - "Power Trip"

J. Cole is one of those artists you can always depend on. Even if he's dropping a record made for radio or the club, there will always be a deeper meaning or feel to the track than your average hit.

J. Cole takes his new single "Power Trip" a step further with the Nabil and Mike Piscitelli directed visuals. Watch below as he and Miguel meet under unfortunate circumstances back in Cole's hometown of Fayetteville, NC.

Born Sinner is currently slated to hit stores on June 25!

As a bonus, hit the jump to see J. Cole and Miguel perform "Power Trip" together for the first time during Miguel's latest show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

J. Cole ft. Miguel - "Power Trip"

"Miss America" was a nice introduction to Born Sinner, but J. Cole's finally put out the single that he'll hopefully be riding comfortably with through radio waves for quite some time.

Check out his new single "Power Trip" featuring Miguel, which serves as retribution for Cole's assistance on Miguel's debut "All I Want Is You."
