The 25 Best J. Cole Verses

11. "Runaway" (2nd Verse)

Best Line: "If I follow my heart to save myself/Could I run away from 50 mill like Dave Chappelle?"
Album: Born Sinner

Riding perhaps the lushest, most gorgeous production on Born Sinner, J. Cole goes in the opposite direction, looking at the darkside. On the third verse, after spitting that he's seen "evil that not even Kneivel know." He gets particularly deep, connecting the dots between a pervy high school coach, slaves being raped, his grandmother's light complexion, and the mental chains of 2013. We will survive.
