J. Cole previously indicated his new album Born Sinner (out June 18) wouldn’t feature any other rappers. Today, though, he posted the tracklist in screencap form, and it turns out he actually made room for one (or two, depending on how you’re counting). His buddy Kendrick Lamar joins the festivities on “Forbidden Fruit,” which may serve as a preview of their hopefully in-the-works joint album. The other big name is 50 Cent, who is on a track with Bas called “New York Times” (which we’re guessing isn’t about The Gray Lady), but that song is part of the 5-track Truly Yours 3 EP, which comes packaged with the deluxe edition of the album.
Despite the dearth of MCs, there’s no shortage of singers on the LP. In addition to Miguel and TLC, James Fauntleroy appears on the title track. And for “She Knows,” Cole has taken a page from the Major Lazer book, calling on Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors.
Head below to see the full tracklist and screencap.
