Kendrick Lamar & 50 Cent Join J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ Roster

50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar are about to become “sinners,” as they lend a hand on J. Cole’s forthcoming sophomore album, due out June 18 on Roc Nation.

Cole tweeted out the Born Sinner tracklist Wednesday (June 5), which also includes support from Dirty Projectors singer Amber Coffman on a track called “She Knows.”

Obvious standouts include the already released singles “Power Trip,” featuring Miguel, and “Crooked Smile,” featuring TLC. Black Hippy’s Jhene Aiko and producer James Fauntleroy (who co-wrote Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie”) round out the album credits, while rapper Bas joins 50 on “The New York Times.” Born Sinner’s 16-song tracklist accommodates most of Coles guests, however the Bas/Fif collab and Aiko’s track, “Sparks Will Fly,” will appear on a bonus EP, titled Truly Yours 3, which comes with the deluxe version of the record. Fans who can’t hold out until June 18 have a unique opportunity to hear the album before it drops at listening sessions in eight cities across the country. Residents of Atlanta, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Toronto, Houston, Los Angeles and Cole’s hometown Fayettville, North Carolina, can tune in with a special app on their iOS and Android devices to stream Born Sinner on Thursday (June 6) at 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CT/5 p.m. PST.


Born Sinner drops in the midst of Cole’s 10-date Dollar And A Dream tour, which sets fans back just one dollar per ticket, but saves venue information until the day-of. The tour takes on the U.S. from June 11 through June 26.
