We Got Something New: J. Cole "Lost Ones"

We Got Something New: J. Cole "Lost Ones"

J. Cole: Snap Pack Official

I'm officially going HAM on this post.  Okay, I'm not.  I'm just a J. Cole fan posting up his latest track Lost Ones. There is no way this is a single intended to light up the buzz torch or whatever, this is definitely an album cut from that freshman album, it's too deep to be a single but it's Cole's typical mid-album heavy lifting.

Overall not a bad track, brilliant lyricism (as usual), decent beat, but going a bit too heavy to make MTV JAMZ HOT SUMMERZ JAMZ 2011 jam list (they have that, right?).

You - "Oh, but they lyrics ain't that hot."

J.Cole:  "See, I knew that this is how you act. So typical / You say you love me but now you flippin like reciprocals."


"But she ain't no wife though / Uh-oh, she tellin' him she missed her period like typos / He panickin', 'froze up like a manakin / a life grows inside her / he askin 'is it even mine?'"

Score: 7/10
