Pregnancy scares are common. Heartwrenching, nerve wrecking and detrimental to the foundation of a human being. Every day you wake up wondering if you pulled out or did the condom break or is she on the pill drives you insane. Nothing tastes right, phone calls become more erratic and thoughts become more irrational as the days go by.

J. Cole‘s mental makeup in penning “Lost Ones” may have secured his place as one of hip-hop’s new voices, common enough to deal with every day problems as well as the pressures of success. Playing the dual roles of father and mother to be, Cole expresses the thoughts of a man who may not be ready financially ready to bring a child into this world, as well as a woman who may want to love that child regardless. If you’ve been in this situation, then obviously the record will hit to you harder than others.
