'Crooked Smile' J Cole VIDEO From 'Born Sinner' Album; In Memory of Aiyana Stanley Jones Death [WATCH]

J Cole released the official video for his hit-single, Crooked Smile from his Born Sinner album Wednesday.

In the almost six-minute emotional video, the rapper attempts to end the war on drugs.

He first sets the scene by enjoying a home barbecue with his family.The clip shows the rapper welcoming his family home and hugging his sister as they celebrate the little girl's birthday. A happy moment soon turns for the worst when the FBI comes rushing into Cole's house around bedtime. As cops storm in to the home to arrest Cole, his sister is peeking from her bedroom and watching her brother in handcuffs. 

Unaware of Cole's sister in the bedroom, one of the cops shoots toward the room, instantly killing the girl.

The video was based on Joseph Weekely, the Detroit police officer accused in the death of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones.

In an interview with Hot 97's Miss Info, Cole said he was a little disappointed with the finished product of the video.

"It came out nice but it just didn't come out exactly how I wanted. It's such an important song so I want the visual to match. If this was my first video than I would have panicked."

The video was orginally shot in the streets of Brooklyn in early June, but Cole chose to scrap the footage and start over.
