Frank Ocean Biography

Review The Artist (1)

Frank Ocean-photo
Compared to the mainstream r&b/hip-hop music we hear on the radio now-a-days, Ocean is a breath of fresh air. As a member of the Odd Future (OFWGKTA) collective, his sound is distinctively soulful/r&b influenced, yet done in a way that could pass for something totally different. As Odd Future's website states, "It's Smooth Ass Music About Bitches, Relationships And Being A Rich Young Nigga... But In A Swagged Out Way."

His first mixtape; "nostalgia, ULTRA." was released in February 2011
