Within the last week, Odd Future has been in the studio with the Neptunes, covered Billboard, and the group’s Frank Ocean was featured in The NY Times. Although the crooner kept his studio session with Beyoncé on the hush, he tells MTV that he’s shocked by the ‘net’s response to his Nostalagia, Ultra.
“The first thing that was shocking to me — as a person that grew up with the Internet and knowing how vicious people can be, especially when they are anonymous — early on, there was no hate. There was nothing negative. Everything I was thinking about from the marketing prospective was as far as how to start a fire, because you don’t expect a response, because who the fuck am I? I’m just another guy putting out another collection of music and telling you to download this.”
