    Anyone know who played bass on the single "Crooked Smile" by J. Cole and TLC? The bass work is in that Thad Tribbett style. I'm guessing it could be big guy who endorses Ibanez and has played for Jill Scott, but I can't remember his name. Whoever it is, the bassline is great!

    I thought Nate Jones did all of Coles work. Nate Jones is a MONSTER player


    Sick bassline there!

    I really enjoy the hearing the young, super busy finger style r&b bassists. They have put us old slappers out to pasture!:D

    This is the best style of bass playing and what influenced me when I was young.

    For another great record with nasty basslines in this style, check out Juvenile - 400 degreez.
