Spread the Love, keep the Peace, and make WAVES

Lyrics –
(Verse 1)
Thought love was obsolete, I need to be complete
I yearn for more but in your eye can’t help but see deceit
Don’t let this be another episode that repeats, NO, NO, NO, YEAH
Let’s keep on running like we got Forrest Gump’s feet
I’m gunnin’ for your love, oh no they cannot beat me
Don’t really fight but we can spar just come in see me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, look
We can play hide and go seek for you love baby girl let’s play for keeps
Every night baby girl I can’t sleep, you can’t return this love no need for a receipt

Chorus (Repeat 2x)
Why I got you on my mind yeah
Why I got you on my mind yeah
Why I got you on my mind yeah

Why I got you on my
Why I got you on my
Why I got you on my mind Yeah

(Verse 2)
You for ever my lady like Jodeci
This is love and basketball go get the referee
I ain’t asthmatic huuuuu but I can’t breath
1,2,3 my heart beat, girl girl every time that you kiss me
When we apart I wonder if you really miss me
Who am I kidding still be in love if you you dissed me
Dang, Dang, Dang, Damn

(Bridge)
And I just don’t understand it
You don’t mess with love you mess with the truth
And I know I shouldn’t say it
But my heart don’t understand

Chorus (Repeat 2x)

Why I got you on my mind yeah
Why I got you on my mind yeah
Why I got you on my mind yeah

Why I got you on my
Why I got you on my
Why I got you on my mind Yeah

(Bridge )
Ha ha nah oh no yeah
na na no no no yeah

I I I I I Don’t Understand Naaaaaaaaaaaaa

(Chorus) Repeat2x

You think you know somebody
Why I got you on my mind
You think you know somebody
Why I got you on my mind
You think you know somebody
Why I got you on my mind
Why I got you on my
You think you know
Why I got you on my
you think you know
Why I got you on my
you think you know

Crooked Nation !


“Oh, you a women? I don’t know how you deal with all the pressure to look impressive.”

Many women like myself have been faced with different type of insecurities. Crooked smile is a song that attempts to motivate women to embrace their flaws and love themselves. Rapper J. Cole‘s second album Born Sinner features female artist group TLC on the chorus and backing vocals of Crooked smile. The title of the song reflects J. Cole personal flaw and in the first verse of the song he begins to express his thoughts on being famous and having the wealth to fix his crooked teeth but refuses and embraces his flaw.  With the ridicule of the media and others that see it appropriate for him to fall into the ideal look and him being famous and rich and in the society. In a interview he speaks on his feelings and reason for writing crooked smile

“I keep my twisted grill, just to show the kids its real, we ain’t picture perfect but we worth the picture still.”jcole-slide-da-vibe1

Jermaine Cole born in Germany raised in North Carolina makes a point to show that the realness of people is just as worthy of the spot light as those who seem to be mythical perfect in sight.  Jermaine uses keeping his teeth crooked a way to show the young kids that you don’t have to comply or change into what you see on television to make it to the top ,and out the hood.

J. Cole also uses the song to go on to talk about the struggles that women with insecurities face. He tries to empathize with women and the difficulties we are faced with trying to look good only in hopes to obtain a “Man”. J. Cole attempts to empower women falls short when he gets sucked back into his typical male ways when he compares his thick eyebrows to his thick bitches in the context that if you’re smart and rich and have the thick bitches then it’s all good. All while telling women it’s okay to too be who you are accept what God made you. Every day we see women trying to have a certain body weight whether it’s thick and booty luscious or slim and trim.

Crooked Smile’s intentions are good and I commend J.Cole for tackling the subject, but before he can address women he must first address why men cannot accept women for who they are and not what they have for many years tried to make them to be. For centuries women have been suppressed into this small little box of what beauty and femininity is. Women who don’t acquire the qualities or appearance of that try to fix up or make up for it to obtain entrance into what is accepted by men. J. Cole wants women to embrace their flaws and Love their flaws yet he states in his song if you need a “friend” to pick you up I’ll be around. Women want potential husbands, partners in life not a friend. J. Cole unknowingly or knowingly offers his friendship to the flawed women not his romantic love.

The last verse in crooked smile talks about race. J. Cole being a biracial rapper identifies himself with his black side more so then his white side. Continuing with the lyrics “We don’t look nothing like the people on the screen, you know them movie stars, picture perfect beauty queens.” J. Cole does not directly say these white movies stars or those white beauty queens but I proclaim that is exactly what race he is referring too.  Every day the media, commercials etc. broad cast whiteness and how pure and beautiful and wonderful it is. Let’s allow black to be beautiful as well, we have dreams and the color of our skin should not determine if we obtain fame or not, what a perfect world.

I can’t help but wonder when J. Cole line “Look at the nation, that’s a crooked smile braces couldn’t lynchingeven straighten”. Could he be referring to the south where he was raised? From many works like “Reconstructing Dixie” we see that for the longest the south has been trying to fix its past of slavery and discrimination into something that would make it seem not as flawed as it really is. When you visit the Southern planation tours and find that the significant house in slavery does not make it a point to touch on the hard work and labor of the forced slaves put in you do an unjust to black people as a whole.  Watered down literature and TV series and tours do an unjust to the nation, trying to fix history as if you could go back in time and change what happen by watering it down doesn’t cut it.  Overall J. Cole positive, uplifting song empowers women and the world to embrace your flaw and learn from them and learn to love yourself. Jermaine positive lyrics and catchy chorus makes the song impossible not to love especially with TLC on the hook. J. Cole states in an interview that he wants to take ownership of his flaws and yes he has them and so what he still continues to rise to the top as an artist following his dream and so can you.
