J.Cole revealed in a radio interview yesterday (May 23) that he’s tapped the ladies of TLC to drop vocals on his forthcoming sophomore album, Born Sinner. The Roc Nation rapper dropped the bombshell that his new prioject will feature no other rappers.
The “Power Trip” rapper, who is slated to perform tonight at Big Weekend music festival, sat down with Charlie Sloth of BBC Radio 1Xtra to talk up Born Sinner. It seems like Cole is handling the pressures of growing fame just fine and promises to deliver a better LP than his acclaimed debut. Cole didn’t want to reveal too much about the album, but he let go of some interesintg information.
“I got TLC on the album. T-Boz and Chilli. It’s crazy,” said Cole. “Nobody’s rapping on the album other than me.”
Cole weighed in on the recent Cash Money signing of Paris Hilton, and sees the pairing as a setup. “I think it’s awesome,” says Cole. “It’s just gonna make for great jokes and great entertainment for some reason.”
Cole also wasn’t able to avoid talking about Miguel’s Hulk Hogan impersonation from the Billboard Music Awards. “They should get him on the next WWE special,” said Cole with a laugh. “I thought it was the most amazing thing I saw in my life.”
