Are J Cole and Kendrick Lamar working on a secret album together?

Here's hoping...

J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar are rumoured to be collaborating on a secret album.

The pair previously joined forces on 2015 track ‘Forbidden Fruit’ – sending the rumour mill into overdrive at the prospect of a joint album.

Now, the President of Top Dog Entertainment has promoted speculation once more – after he shared a rather telling picture on Instagram.

Sharing a photo of a half-eaten fruit, he wrote: “4bidden”.

One fan responded: “Stop playing! We need this album to save the rap game

Another said: “You best not be trolling“.

Although concrete confirmation of a collaboration between the pair is yet to materialise, J.Cole today releases KOD, his fifth studio album.


The record was announced earlier this week at a free show, where he played all 12 tracks from the album in full to a lucky few.

 The last minute gig saw phones, bags and journalists banned – inviting fans only to rush down to the Gramercy Theatre.
After the show, Rap Radar’s B.Dot gave some insight into what went down at the show and what the record may sound like.
As well as revealing that ‘K.O.D’ stands for three different things (‘Kidz On Drugz’, ‘King Overdose’ and ‘Kill Our Demonz’), B.Dot also shared that the album was recorded in just two weeks and, features the ‘standout’ track ‘1985’, and as a whole sees the rapper “experimenting with flow”.
