Best Music Lyrics Ever Written

Best Music Lyrics Reviews

Music is a great way to express yourself. Music often reflects your experiences and emotions, and some songs use lyricism better than others. Like quotes, some songs have become more famous than others. In fact, depending on the song, once the music starts playing almost everyone can repeat some of the best lyrics.

Top Music Lyrics Review

We’ve prepared some of the most prettiest lyrics we found on the internet for you. Here are some of our favorite results:

1. ‘Premeditated Murder’

“Keep grinding, boy, your life can change in one year and even when it’s dark out, the sun is shining somewhere”

“Premeditated Murder” is one of J. Cole’s best songs and it will still hold up even after he stops making music. “Friday Night Lights”, a TV show, has a line of poetry from its song that is known to millions.

2. ‘Too Deep For The Intro’

“If they don’t know your dreams then they can’t shoot ‘em down”

Another episode of Friday Night Lights was released on Netflix ! This one is particularly popular from J. Cole fans; people often have dreams that seem out of reach for them. Cole has been vocal about never telling anyone in school that he rapped. A line from ‘Black Friday’ is “If you really believe, ain’t gotta talk about it.”

3. ‘Return of Simba’

“Cole under pressure, what that make? Diamonds”

Rap fans rejoiced when J. Cole was finally ready to drop his debut album after 2 years of delays and doubts (from his own label!) due to the success of other rap releases. It was a triumphant moment to match the ending of this double/triple/quadruple entendre.


“One thing about the men that’s controlling the pen that write history, they always seem to white-out they sins”

Cole himself called this his favourite line on the album and it is hard to disagree with the obvious play on “white” out and whitewashing history.

5. ‘N*ggaz Know’

“Saw my old teacher and she asked how I’m living, you ain’t know my shit dropped, bitch? 9/11”

‘N*ggaz Know’ appears on Truly Yours 3, which came to fans as part of the deluxe edition of Born Sinner, J. Cole’s sophomore album. It’s an underrated cut with this line being one of the reasons why. 9/11 is an obvious reference, but Cole’s debut album might also be a reference to the top of a Porsche 911.

6. ‘Roll Call’

“A young boy from a show down in Hampton told me that my song was the reason he beat cancer, ain’t know what to say, I just froze, little too deep I suppose, but after a year of review, I figured out it wasn’t me, it was you, n*gga, congratulations”

“Can I Get Excited?” is one of the early songs on J. Cole’s album that Jay-Z currently owns. It recounts a conversation between Cole and Hov, in which Jay-Z encourages Cole to be more open about his work and get out of his shell a little bit. The way J. Cole took time to reflect on the conversation by composing a song like this is incredible, not to mention giving it back the credit where it’s due.

7. ‘God’s Gift’

“Jigga wouldn’t even take my CD when he seen me, two years later, bitch we made it on, on to The Blueprint”

Before this song was released, it’s video had gotten a lot of views, and one line in the song really stood out: “And I pray to God baby give me more time.” Some people saw this as a plea for spiritual support while others saw it as an admission of defeat.

8. ‘Villuminati’

“Pac had a n*gga saying ‘fuck Jigga’, ‘fuck Biggie’, I was only like eleven so forgive me”

“Screwface” is the first line of Intro to Born Sinner and it’s a line that tells listeners who the song’s about. This is one of the many lines that give listeners tone. The song, itself, isn’t very witty, per-say. It just has a frankness to it that 2Pac wasn’t too shabby in producing.

9. ‘9 5 . s o u t h’

“I be staying out the way but if the beef do come around, could put a M right on your head, you Luigi brother now”

The line “In the games I play, your head is a bounty” was popularized when The Off Season’s album dropped on its release. Mims references Mario’s hat having an M & J. Cole implying he can put a $1 million bounty on someone because of an issue he has with them.

10. 03’ Adolescence’

“I got four brothers, one mother that don’t love us, if they ain’t want us, why the fuck they never wore rubbers?”

This is a great line because J. Cole takes the perspective of his friend. He does this really well and he always has unique, descriptive phrases that always put you in someone’s shoes.

11. ‘Love Yourz’

“Always gon’ be a whip that’s better than the one you got, always gon’ be some clothes that’s fresher than the ones you rock, always gon’ be a bitch that’s badder out there on the tours, but you ain’t never gon’ be happy ‘til you love yours”

Cole’s most sincere words are in the song ‘Love Yourz,’ which is the best illustration of his life-changing realization in 2014.


“One thing about your demons, they bound to catch up one day, I’d rather see you stand up and face ‘em than run away, I understand this message is not the coolest to say, but if you down to try it, I know of a better way, meditate”

I think the song should have been called ‘Medit8’ because that’s also an artist on KOD and would’ve contrasted nicely. But oh well, I guess we’re stuck with ‘Motiv8’ which is still a good build-up to the ending of the verse.

13. ‘2Face’

“I’m playing daddy to another n*gga daughter, don’t worry, even Jesus never saw his real father”

This line at the end of :2Face” hits like a haymaker and speaks to Jesus not having ever seen God, with Cole comparing this situation to that of people around the world who have an absent father.

14. ‘Looking For Trouble’

“They say you are what you eat and I still ain’t pussy”

Widely regarded as one of Cole’s best verses ever, Looking For Trouble also featured Kanye West, Big Sean, CyHi The Prynce and Pusha T. But Cole still came out on top with multiple witty lines – this play on a cliché being one of them.

15. ‘The Autograph’

“This my New Year’s resolution, dog, no more pork in me, I ain’t no Muslim though, Caron Butler, I’m a wizard if you doesn’t know”

Cole made a throwaway line but he went for it and put a few heteronyms in there as well! He references Wizards of the Coast, who he played for at the time.

16. ‘Cost Me A Lot’

“White Range, call that motherfucker Larry Bird”

A white Range Rover, a parody of the luxury car model that is on the market this year. It is not implying it is anything similar to Larry Bird’s career, or anything with range.

17. ‘Farewell’

“I was loved, I was hated, just a n*gga with a dream, I’m a liar, I was honest, I was all of these things, when I’m gone, let ‘em talk, they discussing who I am, when they bury me just know I wasn’t nothing but a man”

Picking the little bit at the beginning of one of J. Cole’s lyrics was tough but in a way it sums him up really well. He has achieved fame and success yet people still can relate to him.

18. ‘Looking For Trouble’

“Ironic, you been sleeping on the one that you been dreaming ‘bout”

Cole ends out the verse with this line about being a Hip-Hop “saviour,” despite not being well known. It’s clear that for him, it’s about the art and not about trying to change music as we think of it today.

19. ‘Welcome’

“They wonder what’s on my mind, what’s lingering in my dome, I tell ‘em ‘ain’t nothing wrong’, I deal with it on my own”

‘Welcome’ was the first song on Cole’s mixtape, and it became the breakout hit. It ends with an introspective line about not vocalising his issues, but handling them privately instead.

20. ‘Dead Presidents II’

“Overcame a low life status to blow like Gladys, ahead of my time like I live my whole life backwards”

If you don’t know the story, J. Cole did a “Dead Presidents” freestyle on his 2007 mixtape The Come Upbut someone came up to him telling him he had to go harder on the classic beat. His response was the sequel on The Warm Up, which featured this clever line.

21. ‘I Get Up’

“Tell me how I’m supposed to feel what the President spoke, when he ain’t never had to struggle, ain’t never been broke, ain’t even rode through the ghetto, ain’t never been close, trusting this government like trusting the Devil in oath”

It’s best to watch J. Cole’s ‘4 Your Eyez Only’ documentary to feel the full weight of this song. You can see him as a young artist not even close to the level of success he has today, which makes these lyrics that much more powerful and meaningful.

22. ‘The Badness’

“Believe in God like the sun up in the sky, science can tell us how but it can’t tell us why”

A North Carolina MC says a beautiful line about science’s inability to find meaning in life, and you can also read in he f word for the double meaning of sun and son.

23. ‘Knock Tha Hustle (Remix)’

“Trynna avoid state troopers, that’s the weight watchers, run this dope, sack this cake ‘til they say “got ya”, until the fat lady sing and n*ggas hate Operas, and Oprah hate “n*ggas”, make no mistake that we know the stakes, still we hope to make over eight figures, slim chances”

Cole dropped a dope set of verses on “Knock Tha Hustle” on Cozz’s remixed version. He does some wordplay which is best explained in this scheme about some food puns, and he references weight watchers as well. Towards the end, he starts with a great play on words that’s worth reading, before ending it with “slim” odds.

24. ‘Crunch Time’

“Only thing worse than death is a regret-filled coffin, so try before you die or always wonder ‘what if?’”

“Never try is the ultimate fail.” J. Cole, with his Dreamville label, ‘Dollar & A Dream’ series and “Dreamer” sneakers, is all about pursuing your dreams. In the song (‘Crunch Time’), he warns listeners about the dangers of giving up on your dreams because it can cause lots of negative consequences.

25. ‘Revenge of the Dreamers’

“Five iPhones dropped, my n*gga still in the cell”

As time goes on, the iPhone gets less popular. There’s so many other options that have become more convenient to people. The wordplay for cell phone and prison is entertaining, but there are also references to Gohan which is an anime character, “Cell” being a Dragon Ball character.

26. ‘May The Bitter Man Win’

“Her new boyfriend is so clever, overheard a couple of her friends telling her he better than me and despite all the spite that builds with each passing night, I can’t help but think they right because he never did cheat”

When you hear this verse, it seems like Cole is having a conversation with his girlfriend about how Hip-Hop relates to current events. When you then take into account that his girlfriend is actually Kendrick Lamar, the lyrics make a lot more sense. Maybe give it another spin and think about what Cole is saying.

27. ‘Beautiful Bliss’

“Mama, I ain’t done yet, sit back and watch your sun rise, kick back and know your son set”

Many people heard about Cole for the first time on Wale’s ‘Beautiful Bliss’ and were impressed with his performance.

28. ‘Album of the Year (Freestyle)’

“I’m the answer on the low, I’m a cheat sheet for rappers, I grew up round AC to DC adaptors, plug talk, what I’m really saying is a shame but my n*ggas move ‘cane like HBCU Kappas”

The track on Nas’s “Oochie Wally” is the stand-out of Cole’s freestyle on it.

29. ‘L.A. Leakers Freestyle’

“No Bill Cosby shit but if n*ggas is sleeping, then fuck ‘em”

It took a long time for J. Cole to release a freestyle with L.A. Leakers, but when he did earlier this year before the release of The Off-Season, it was clear that it was worth the wait.

30. ‘Funkmaster Flex Freestyle’

“Cole World coming, later for them bench warmers, bitch I get covers, you don’t even get covered”

After appearing on radio station HOT 97 in 2009, it was one of Cole’s brighter moments in his early career. He made an impression with Flex, who ended up asking him for more and telling him to “just curse, who cares?” J. Cole generally put out some great songs with bold statements and messages about social injustices. They’re what we wish we heard more of.

31. ‘Head Bussa’

“They killed Saddam, now I wonder who’s sane? How you balance being Batman, Bruce Wayne? Old chick calling but I’m onto new things, she still a dime but I always lose change”

“Head Bussa,” a song by Cole, appears in Truly Yours and is a hit amongst the bigger fans. For the most part, this song isn’t as well known to the majority of consumers but still has fans around the globe.

33. ‘Diamonds’

“Ducking the Devil, you could say I live my life in limbo”

Cole linking up with French Montana and Rick Ross in 2012 was a strange pairing, but it showed that Cole could do well in their lane with a stellar verse. He ends it with this gem, which plays on the Catholic interpretation of Limbo being the place between Hell and Heaven where those not condemned are.

33. ‘Like It or Love It’

“Am I wrong ‘cause I got some dough and copped a couple finer things? G-Shock to Rolex, my how the times have changed”

J. Cole says this line from a lesser-known feature he did for Tinie Tempah around 10 years ago now, a couple of months after Cole World: The Sideline Story dropped. The line is important to him because life was changing at the time.

34. ‘New York Times’

“Imagine a world free from pain and we no longer scared at night, far from the crime, the blind leading the blind, we don’t make the primetime ‘til we dying, the New York Times”

On his work with 50 Cent and Bas, Cole imagines a world before acknowledging the harsh reality that black people often only appear in news stories for their deaths and the myth of “black-on-black crime.”
