There will be plenty of surprises on J. Cole's upcoming album, 'Born Sinner.' The Roc Nation emcee appeared on Charlie Sloth's show on BBC Radio 1Xtra and revealed that he enlisted 1990's girl group TLC for the LP.

"I got Miguel (who appears on 'Power Trip'), but I also got -- this is big -- I got TLC on the album," he said. "Yes, T-Boz and Chilli. It's crazy."

He wouldn't divulge any further about the song but he did add that there will be no rap features on the album.

Meanwhile, Hot 97 personality Peter Rosenberg revealed that there's a song on the 'Born Sinner' album about Nas turning him down for a feature. The tune, reportedly tells the story of how one of his idols expected more from him after hearing his song 'Work Out' from his debut LP, 'Cole World: The Sideline Story.'

This may explain why there are no rap cameos on his upcoming album.

Until then, we'll have to wait and hear what J. Cole is bringing on 'Born Sinner,' which is due in stores June 18.
