Song #2 (J. Cole): "Forbidden Fruit"
Why We Love It: When we first heard that Cole and Kendrick Lamar were joining forces for a song on Born Sinner, a song like this was exactly what we envisioned. The hook ties into the overall theme of the album. Kendrick bodies the chorus. And the beat is so good that we don't even mind listening to Cole mess around with ad-libs on the last minute or so of the song. Do we wish Kendrick would have spit a verse? Of course. But we still really like what these two were able to come up with on this track.
