The 25 Best J. Cole Verses

17. "Blow Up" (1st Verse)

Best Line: "They say: 'What you fighting for? The game is on life support/And Gary Coleman just passed/Life is short."
Album: Friday Night Lights

On "Blow Up," Cole is back playing the star-in-waiting—a role he's relished since debuting on Jay-Z's "A Star Is Born." Over an unlikely yodel sample (yodel!) and wierd, distorted guitars, Cole shouts out "sisters who ain't satisfied with secretary," before wondering, "What's the cost to live your dream, do you feel me?"—a question he'd revisit on Born Sinner.
