Top songs

5. "Lights Please" The Sideline Story. According to Cole, the song has a double-meaning, not solely applicable to referring to a girl he's involved with. In Dec. 2013, during an interview with Hard Knock TV, J. Cole confirmed that "Lights Please" had a double meaning, as the second layer refers to the relationship between him and hip-hop. 4. "I Get Up" Off of The Warm Up, "I Get Up" is frequently cited as the track that demonstrates Cole's capabilities and illuminates him as the one at the top of the modern rap game. Filled with brassy instrumentation and a solid beat, "I Get Up" has Cole "urging those in the many neglected hoods of America to keep their heads up, before begging fathers to raise their kids so that they could overcome the bullshit,' according to Complex. Proving a source of positivity and inspiration, Cole spits, "Show the sons how to lead not to follow / The present is our gift but our seeds got tomorrow." 3. "Be Free" "Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free." Expressing his pain and grief, J. Cole can hardly push through the song, without breaking down. It may not be the standard J. Cole track, but it's one of his most emotional tracks, capturing pain and grieving in the most tangible form. 2. "Simba" Full of confidence, J. Cole started off his series of Simba-based tracks with the release of "Simba," off of his 2007 mixtape, The Come Up. "Simba" depicts a younger Cole, full of hunger, ready to exude his skillfulness and flow in the rap game. Boasting confidently, Cole raps, "I just massacre the streets / I'm a master of the beats and the rhymes / I'm rappin' for the freaks and the dimes / and I shine like a mothaf*ckin diamond." 1. "Lost Ones" "Lost Ones" shows multiple sides of the situation, presenting the man's viewpoint; the pregnant woman's perspective, along with what the man's friends have been telling him, amid the debacle. The song's chorus is most revelatory of the man's perspective, spitting out, "And I ain't too proud to tell you / That I cry sometime, I cry sometimes about it / And girl I know it hurt, but if this world was perfect / Then we can make it work but I doubt it."
