41Mr. Nice Watch

This is the first Cole song that I heard and made me fall in love with him. Definitely needs to be higher

Cole's voice and that guitar is perfect harmony!

Should be top 5 how can you put this 42nd?! Proper fire cole goes in 2014 forest hills is his magnum opus for sure

Maybe not the best but certainly better than 45. Top 20 definitely.

This song should be a candidate for #1. How is it ranked 44th?

His best hook for sure

He's right this song is one of the best

So you telling me yall forgot this song! Of all songs! Forget that lost ones! Listen to the born sinner album and see if you can keep lost ones #1

A song that talks about the realism of growing up and settling down,
And just how scary it is to change and actually fall in love or runaway...

50Song for the Ville

This is easily top ten its insane that its all the way down here at 36 this song is almost as good as return of simba

51Nobody's Perfect

This song is good. It definitely deserves a top 10. The chorus is so calming... Always listen to it when I'm down...

52Miss America

This is top 10! His views on America and the norm of things such as miss America are called out for their ignorance. Real song j cole lets you in his deep thoughts and fears

By far his best work. The beat, the lyrics, the message. This song has the whole package. No way any song should be in front of this one.

This Says the reality of life on us. And they shut up the Media, wirh money

53Be Free

Yo, if this song isn't one of his best then I don't know. Everybody sleeping on "Work Out", which is in my opinion cole's worst lyrical song ever. This song actually has a message which is more than important for everybody. They should play this in the radio. ALL WE WANNA DO IS BREAK THE CHAINS OFF.

82 is a understatement especially the David letterman version

55Can I Live

Some thing is definitely wrong with this list if this isn't in the top 10. Easily one of his deepest, tear jerking, true heart touching songs. Give it a listen, and you wont regret it. Trust me.

This song just is so emotional. When you listen to it, you can feel the great storytelling come to your ears. Amazing song and one of his best

Seriously in his top three best songs. Easily. Something is definitely wrong with this list. This song has some DEEP lyrics. This list is crud if this doesn't even show in the top ten...?

This song is ill! Listen to warm up if you haven't yet, Cole's best work in my opinion

57Grown Simba

In my opinion the best Cole track beat wise without a doubt and my favourite track off "The Warm Up", The beat is sick and everyone should hear this song its dope. Should be much higher on this list too.

Great Story and the beat works very well with it. First J.Cole track I heard and I automatically got hooked

58Can I Holla at Ya

Beyond amazing, the guitar track is what Meeks this one of the most deep and beautiful songs I've ever heard. Cole spits a simple story, but it'll hit you hard no matter what.
