4. "Lost Ones" (2nd verse)
Best Line: "Now I'm pregnant, you don't wanna get involved, motherfucker?/Tryna take away a life, is you God, motherfucker?"
Album: Cole World: The Sideline Story
Many of the songs in Cole's catalog are powerful stories that tell the story of various characters in the first person, and "Lost Ones" is probably the best example. Here Cole takes on a young, unwed couple arguing over their unborn child and whether to abort it. This topic has been tackled before—Common's "Retrospect for Life," for example—but Cole goes deeper than ever on the second verse, rhyming from the perspective of a pregnant woman who can't believe the man she loves is "flipping like reciprocals."
