The 25 Best J. Cole Verses

18. "Nobody's Perfect" f/ Missy Elliott (1st Verse)

Best Line: "I step over piranha, death over dishonor/They killing niggas for J's, that's death over designer."
Album: Cole World: The Sideline Story

It's easy to get distracted by Missy Elliott's melodic comeback on the hook, and the funky, chopped-up wah-wah-guitar. But behind all that, Cole quietly kills the first verse on this third single from Cole World. Using a slow, deliberate flow, Cole skillfully plays off (and feeds into) rumors he was tapping Rihanna during their tour together: "Remember when I used to be stressed over D'wana/Now a nigga only text and get stressed over Rihannas."
