What it's like to have a crooked smile
This crooked smile

from J. Cole (Ft. TLC) – Crooked Smile Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Cole is about to explain that insecurity that we all feel and that our culture continues to encourage with it’s presentation of unreachable beauty. As an artist he has the ability to reach within himself and preset his own flaws for the world to see in hopes that his flaws ease the pain of his listeners.

He closes off the verse by stating that he understands the pressure that ladies go through to “look good” because thats exactly what its like for him to be in the limelight with his crooked smile.
