J. Cole – Crooked Smile [BREAKDOWN] Lyrics – feat. TLC

27 Jun

It’s always refreshing to hear a celebrity say he looks nothing like a celebrity, and mean it! That is just one of the perks you get from J.Cole‘s song Crooked Smile featuring TLC’s T-Boz & Chilli. Released back in the beginning of June ’13, Crooked Smile stands out as one of the Roc Nation Artist’s most transparent record to date. Not only is it radio friendly, but Cole wrote every lyric with passion and purpose and he stayed on topic even when he changed directions. Watch this video to get a deeper look at where J. Cole is coming from lyrically, and  join the discussion below.

Lyrics:

[Hook: TLC]
I’m on my way, on my way, on my way down (x2)
You’re the one that was trying to keep me way down
But like the sun oh you know I found my way back round

[Verse 1: J. Cole]
Look
They tell me I should fix my grill cause I got money now
I ain’t gon’ sit around and front like I ain’t thought about it
A perfect smile is more appealing but it’s funny how
My shit is crooked look at how far I done got without it
I keep my twisted grill, just to show them kids it’s real
We ain’t picture perfect but we worth the picture still
I got smart, I got rich, and I got bitches still
And they all look like my eyebrows: thick as hell
Love yourself, girl, or nobody will
Oh, you a woman? I don’t know how you deal
With all the pressure to look impressive and go out in heels
I feel for you
Killing yourself to find a man that’ll kill for you
You wake up, put makeup on
Stare in the mirror but its clear that you can’t face what’s wrong
No need to fix what God already put his paint brush on
Your roommate yelling, “Why you gotta take so long?”
What it’s like to have a crooked smile
This crooked smile

[Hook]

[Verse 2: J. Cole]
To all the women with the flaws, know it’s hard my darling
You wonder why you’re lonely and your man’s not calling
You keep falling victim cause you’re insecure
And when I tell you that you’re beautiful you can’t be sure
Cause he don’t seem to want you back and it got you asking
So all you see is what you lacking, not what you packing
Take it from a man that loves what you got
And baby girl you’re a star, don’t let ’em tell you you’re not
Now is it real? Eyebrows, fingernails, hair
Is it real? if it’s not, girl you don’t care
Cause what’s real is something that the eyes can’t see
That the hands can’t touch, that them broads can’t be, and that’s you
Never let ’em see you frown
And if you need a friend to pick you up, I’ll be around
And we can ride with the windows down, the music loud
I can tell you ain’t laughed in a while
But I wanna see that crooked smile

[Hook]

[Bridge 1: J. Cole (TLC)]
Crooked smile, we could style on ’em (back ’round)
Crooked smile, we could style on ’em (back ’round)
(You’re the one that was trying to keep me way down.
Like the sun, I know you know I found my way back round..)

[Verse 3: J. Cole]
We don’t look nothing like the people on the screen
You know them movie stars, picture perfect beauty queens
But we got dreams and we got the right to chase ‘em
Look at the nation, that’s a crooked smile braces couldn’t even straighten
Seem like half the race is either on probation, or in jail
Wonder why we inhale, cause we in hell already
I asked if my skin pale, would I then sell like Eminem or Adele?
Yo one more time for the ‘Ville
And fuck all of that beef shit, nigga let’s make a mil
Hey officer man, we don’t want nobody getting killed
Just open up that cell, let my brother out of jail
I got money for the bail now, well now
If you asking will I tell now? Hell naw
I ain’t snitching cause
Man, they get them niggas stitches now
If you was around, then you wouldn’t need a witness now
How you like this crooked smile?

[Hook]

Jessie J – WILD ft. Big Sean & Dizzee Rascal – Song Lyrics Review

12 Jun

Jessie J is out with another timeless track to continue the DOMINO effect of her success. WILD, featuring American rapper Big Sean and the UK’s Dizzee Rascal is a big enough smash to ensure just as much satisfaction to come in her second album as was received from her debut, Who You Are. The message within each verse of Jessie’s lyrics in WILD is an audacious rockstar outpour of her disinterest in negativity, and her passion for the dream she’s actually living! Enjoy the review below and share it with other Jessie J fans!

LYRICS:

[JESSIE J]

If I go hard, let me tell you that is worth it
Play the right cards, I ain’t afraid to work it
Brush ’em right off, when they say I dont deserve it
Hands on my heart, you keep my fire burning

Ooh it feels so crazy when you scream my name
Love it when you rock me over every day
When I think about it I can go insane
Here we are it’s beautiful, I’m blown away

Chorus:

If this is a dream, won’t open my eyes,
Am I asleep? No, I’m alive
I just can’t believe that this is my life
In my fantasy we’re running wild

When it gets rough and the rain starts pouring
I turn up the heat cuz the drama ain’t important
Let em all talk talk, I’mma just ignore it
Hands on my heart, you you keep me moving forward

Ooh it Feel so crazy when they scream my name

[Big Sean]
B.I.G. Sean don, OK
Today I woke up feeling like the mayor
I spent about an hour looking in the mirror
As I should, as much as I’ve been through
It’s a wonder I look this damn good
I could probably make it out any situation that you try to put me in to
If I swim with the piranhas guaranteed that I’mma probably have a fish dinner
I met a young girl with a sexy shape like Jessie J
We escapade
Where its extra shade
She make me want to give and not take like collection plates
Woah
All the awards, bras, cars, wall to wall
Is all a mirage
And I could lose it all tonight
Just to show the world I could do it twice
This is my life

Chorus x 1

Di-Di-Di-DIZZEE!

[DIZZEE RASCAL]
Rascal ah, double the dollar
I’m a jetsettin brother more hits than a white collar
But I can’t be boxed
Flow tight like Bob Marley’s locks,
I can’t be dropped
I’m at the peak and I can’t be topped
I’m wilding out
I’ve lost the plot
I can’t be stopped
Pull up in a gnarly Rari,barmy what?
Opposite of calmly
Bet I’ll get the party hot
I can’t be blocked,
10 years plus running the game
You broddas just come in the game,
but now I’m coming again
To get the people going dumb and insane
Hundred thousand people going bonkers in the mud and the rain
Women on shoulders, tops off, shouting my name
I’m all in their brain, why would I complain?
I thought I was the Boy in da Corner
But I’m in a penthouse, now your boy is a baller
I’m living
