J. Cole definitely has something to prove with his sophomore effort, and the rapper hasn't been shy about it, pushing up his album's release in order to compete with Kanye West. Although we haven't seen a tracklist for Born Sinner yet, we now know what not to expect: rap features. The North Carolina native revealed to Charlie that he'll be the only one rapping on his album. He remains tight-lipped about any other features, apart from the already-known Miguel and one big surprise-- TLC.
J. Cole said about features, "You know I got Miguel right. But I also got, this is big, I also got TLC on the album. T-Boz and Chilli." He added, "Nobody's rapping on the album other than me."
Although Cole wouldn't reveal too many details on his own album, he did speak on current topics, including Paris Hilton signing to YMCMB.
The rapper responded to the news, "Awesome." When asked if he was being serious, he said, "It's gunna make for great jokes...and entertainment...for some reason." However, Cole still seemed unsure if it was all just an elaborate joke. "It must be some time of genius maneuver behind this," Cole suggested. Will a Paris Hilton and J. Cole collaboration ever happen? "Never," he said.
