The 25 Best J. Cole Verses

1. "Lights Please" (2nd Verse)

Best Line: "And ain't it shameful, how niggas blame hoes for giving birth/To a baby that took two to make—coward nigga, you a fake."
Album: The Warm-Up

This is the song that reportedly got J. Cole his deal with Roc Nation, impressing both legendary manager Mark Pitts (who used to work with Biggie) and Jay-Z. It's easy to see why, especially on the second verse: Cole's flow is singsongy and agile, but he's telling a deep, all-too-familiar story, of how he wants to change the world—right after he beds this beautiful girl.
