According to iTunes, rapper-of-the moment J. Cole is a new father.
Jermaine Lamarr Cole, 31, and his wife Melissa Heholt welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday. The newborn is Cole's first child (that we know of).
Cole's heart-wrenching music video "Crooked Smile" is today's Throwback Thursday video.
The North Carolina rapper dedicated "Crooked Smile" to 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was shot & killed during a DEA drug raid on her Detroit home in 2010.
The music video, directed by Sheldon Candis, draws parallels to Aiyana's tragic story. Cole's character watched helplessly as a white DEA agent gunned down his little sister in his home.
The video concludes with a thoughtful message to the Obama administration: "Please reconsider your war on drugs".
