21 Apparently

This song has good lyrics. I said it. That's all it has and you can't have a good song with good lyrics and an awful beat. This song deserves its spot stop whining down here at number 36.

Best song by the best currently, and one of the top three of all time. He's up there with Eminem and Tupac.

Yo, how is this not 1? This is an incredible song. Cole's second verse on this for me is one of the greatest verses of all time.

His best song off his best album

22 Rise and Shine

Starts with that intro by Jay Z and Cole just comes in and Kills it! So glad it was actually on an album and not a mixtape.

The opening words are great- Jay-Z talking about j cole n stuff... Interesting - then cole just hits it... The beat is great though really makes this song

Cole top 5 for sure

Drums are pretty good and he kills some serious bars

23 Who Dat

Come on MAN THIS DESERVES THE TOP SPOT...
"WILL SMITH TO the HOOD"... :D
THE SONG IS DOPE!

Its one of the best if not the best n just watched the video and oh men! Simple n nyc... My ring tone now

Lyrically amazing over a dope beat he comes too hard to not be a top 3 J Cole song of all time

If this song doesn't put you in a good mood, I don't know what will!

24 Breakdown

This is one of cole's deepest songs and the way he progresses through the story shows his true talent. He's also said it's one of his most personal songs but it's still relatable for anyone.

Just a beautiful song, they lyrics are deep, and the instrumental soars so high.

One of cole's best and deepest songs on a studio album

Unconditionally one of the dopest J. Cole'songs. He made a markable writing where everyone can see this guy as a talented one.

25 Sideline Story

This song is what got me to love j cole and all his music

Great song. Their a reason the album had it's name, it was because of this song. Shoulda been higher

J Cole's most underrated song. Should've been top 3 along with 2face and Premeditated Murder.

This one of the realest but I don't know if it's the best, too many good songs like runaway, land of the snakes, ville mentality, no role modelz, chaining day I could go on for days

26 Can't Get Enough

* Amazing hook
* Superb music
* Awesome delivery
* Great lyrics

Cole goes hard on this song. It's a great song to listen to, especially in car. It's one of my favorite J Cole songs. It's not his best song, but it deserves to be in the Top Ten!

I bet the music is real good... J cole is good enough but with trey its really fantastic... Love the beats and the beach...

This Track Is Just Dope Yo! The Beat! Lyrics! And it even has Trey Songz who nailed the hook

Should be way higher, straight jam.

27 2Face

This song deserves top 5 come on. I mean verse 3 one of the best cole verses

I think that this is one of Cole's top three
Songs. I think it's the best off of Friday night lights. Great beat, lyrics, and just sounds raw.

#24? come on. This list is messed up. Should be #4

28 Too Deep for the Intro

What? This Is Like #2 Easily. Very Disappointed That Its 37th.

How is this # 34? Its honestly the most touching song he's ever written

Just like the title it was definitely too deep...

Best cole track!

29 Love Yourz

This song should be higher. J.Cole's lyrics move me, he talks about how materialistic possessions don't make your life better, quite a contrast to what all the other rappers are doing these days, talking about how they got money and women coming out of their pockets. This is one of the realest songs I have ever heard from one of the most realest artists I have ever come across. J.Cole really knows how to use absolute honesty to move an audience. Keep it up Jermaine

Deep song showing you don't need materialistic things to enjoy life all you gotta do is "love yourz"

This song is incredible. Definitely one of the best J. Cole songs of all time because of his deeper meaning and incredible soothing beat. - BicBoi

This song should be way higher in my opinion, purely for it's positive message.

32 The Badness

"believe in God like the sun up in the sky!

Science can tell us how how but they can't tell us why

I seen a baby cry then seconds later she laughed, the beauty of life-

The pain never lasts"

Come on this should be top 5

One of coles best songs for sure top 20 maybe not 10

33 Losing My Balance

Great, meaningful song. Can tell it comes straight from the heart

35 Head Bussa

Best J Cole song lyrically!

36 Fire Squad

Such a great song. Beat goes hard and is straight up fire.

This has to be at least in the top 30.He was fire in this song.

This track is fire! One of my favourite songs of 2014

Why is this ranked 45?

39 Chaining Day

Great beat and sample, interestingly different narrative than usual J Cole songs with that familiar smooth husky style

40 Chaining Game

This track showcases one of Cole's most mellow, yet hardest beats. Though, if you mix the mellowness of the beat with the intensity of Cole's rhymes, you get the perfect song.
