J. Cole f/ Kendrick Lamar – “Forbidden Fruit” | New Music

J Cole 'Born Sinner' Album Cover

This one is one of my favourite tracks on J. Cole‘s new album, and kind of plays on the Adam and Eve story from the Bible’s book of Genesis. Jermaine wasn’t lying when he said there were no rap verses on the LP, as Kendrick Lamar doesn’t lay down a 16 bar but the track cleverly weaves between Cole’s vocals and Kendrick’s before letting Lamar take on the chorus duties.

This one must have been recorded quite recently as there is a line that goes “Imma drop the album same day as Kanye” in reference to moving his album release date to the same day as Kanye West‘s Yeezus LP. Take a listen below.
