J. Cole, "Lost Ones"

Written and given the video treatment prior to his Roc Nation/Columbia Records signing, this J. Cole song is the perfect example of his dexterity as an artist. Not only did he produce the track, but he also tackled a touchy subject, delivered both a male and female's perspective with adept lyrical intelligence and humbly offered an emotional hook.
