Check out some of J. Cole’s hottest lyrics on ‘4 Your Eyez Only’
1. From “Neighbors”
“My sixteen should've came with a coffin
F--k the fame and the fortune—well, maybe not the fortune
But one thing is for sure though, the fame is exhausting”
2. From “She’s Mine Pt. 1”
“Every time you go to sleep you look like you in Heaven
Plus the head game is stronger than a few Excedrin
You shine just like the patent leather on my new 11's
You read me like a book like
I'm the Bible, you the reverend”
3. From “4 Your Eyez Only”
“This is hell and I don't mean that hyperbolic
I try to find employment even if it's wiping toilets
But these felonies be making life the hardest
Resisting the temptation to run up and swipe a wallet"
4. From “Change”
“Yeah, my intuition is telling me there'll be better days
I sit in silence and find whenever I meditate
My fears alleviate, my tears evaporate
My faith don't deviate, ideas don't have a date”
5. From “For Whom the Bell Tolls”
“The bells getting loud, ain't nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to go, put away my pride
Tired of feeling low even when I'm high
Ain't no way to live, do I wanna die?”
6. From “4 Your Eyez Only”
“My definition of a real n---a was skewed
My views misshaped by new mixtapes
That confirmed the shit I learned in the streets was true
That real n---as don't speak when they beef with you
They just pull up on your street, let the heat achoo”
7. From “Immortal”
“Have you ever seen a fiend cook crack on the spoon?
Have you ever seen a n---a that was black on the moon?
Have you ever seen your brother go to prison as you cried?
Have you ever seen a motherf--ckin’ ribbon in the sky?”
8. From “Foldin Clothes”
“Foldin’ clothes, watching Netflix
Catching up on our shows, eating breakfast
Raisin Bran in my bowl with bananas and some almond milk
I never thought I’d see the day I’m drinking almond milk”
9. From “Deja Vu”
“I heard you got a man, but who in their right mind letting you out the house alone?
Tell me is your house a home?
Why you in the club looking like you out to zone?
I be discreet and pull out your phone and put my number in it”
10. From “Change”
“It’s either that or they be fearing they gon’ go to hell
Asking the father for forgiveness
God I’m overwhelmed
As if he’s spiteful like them white folds that control the jail
See I believe if God is real, he’ll never judge a man
Because he knows us all and therefore he would understand”
