J. Cole Reveals ‘Neighbors’ Beat Is ‘Forbidden Fruit’ in Reverse

J. Cole is using his “4 Your Eyez Only Tour” to make a statement on the prison system, but he’s also using it to show off some special on-stage tricks for longtime fans.

During a portion of the show in Anaheim on Sunday (July 9), Jermaine stopped performing “Forbidden Fruit” off his 2013 album Born Sinner. When his DJ played the song backwards, it bled into “Neighbors,” leading many to wonder if the “Neighbors” beat was simply the “Forbidden Fruit” instrumental played in reverse.
