The 25 Best J. Cole Verses

3. "Let Nas Down" (2nd Verse)

Best Line: "I couldn't help but think that maybe I had made a mistake/I mean, you made 'You Owe Me' dog, I thought that you could relate."
Album: Born Sinner

Thanks to Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg, this song was the subject of much discussion before anyone else had heard it. But Cole lives up to the hype with a humble, brutally honest dissection of the artistic sacrifices musician make for commercial success. In the second verse in particular he doesn't hold his tongue, taking a jab at Jay, labeling his label home Roc Nation "archaic, formulaic," and calling Nas out for making some clunkers of his own.
