Frank Ocean Covers FADER

Having a breakout year, Odd Future’s Frank Ocean get his first cover story with FADER. Catch the fade and read an excerpt below.

When he was nine, Frank Ocean’s godfather subscribed him to Robb Report, a magazine for the ultra-rich. Less interested in fiduciary smarts, it’s a catalog of conspicuous consumption, highlighting tropical vacations, invaluable antiques and, as Ocean came to know, really expensive cars. Though he comes from a middle class family, he obsessively read the magazine’s classified ads, fixating on exorbitantly priced used Bentleys and Maybachs. “I would just fall in love with all their cars. That was the start.” Ocean, whowas born Christopher Breaux (and goes by Lonny to friends), downscaled his material desires, and when he was 13, began going door-to-door, detailing cars for cash. “I would bring all my supplies. Literally, it was like a movie, I had a wagon, those long red wagons, like a Radio Flyer-type wagon, and I used to buy my own soaps.”

    Reminds me a bit of that infamous quote on Wu tang forever. “Its wutang and…rza”. The producers is predisposed to getting the most shine. It is about the “music” after all.

    Frank Ocean is a musical genius. Point Blank.

  • schmoe

    the problem with people is they forget the past. Jimi hendrix was a genius. Donnie Hathaway was a genius. Earth Wind and Fire is genius. Michael Jackson is genius. Prince is a genius. The only reason people would call this music genius is because 1. They forgot about the past 2. They are comparing his music to the BLATANTLY terrible music of today. There are TONS and I MEAN TONS of singers that make frank look simple. The thing is, hes apart of the agenda, he’s going to push homosexuality (which is no ones business, but they are making it the masses business, ask luther vandross which shits on this nigga), and his music is dark as fuck. Again, he might seem like a fresh sound, but if you go back a little bit, or listen for other artists of today, you’ll find really seasoned singers with ridiculous production.

    My main gripe about this dude is he can’t hold a groove… He always putting pasues into everything he sing… he don’t really know how to build up a song.. listen to the masters.. like lenny williams… that nigga pours his soul in it, he builds up the energy, and keeps the energy up. This nigga is on some pretentious shit, like we just supposed to ride with this nigga…. Prince, another example… the range on that nigga, and the production is just fucking 100x on this… you think just cause hes better than ray J or some shallow shit that he’s the second coming? The game is graded on the curve these days ,cause they aint gonna let all the talented brothers in, cause niggas aint about the agenda and being gay, they will fuck around and sing about real shit, and the industry cant take no risks…. its operation lock down… frank is own with the illuminati nuff said..
