Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2009 – present)

Frank Ocean (born October 28, 1987) is an American singer/songwriter and member of the gleefully hedonistic hip-hop collective OFWGKTA. He was born Christopher “Lonny” Breaux in New Orleans, Louisiana, and now resides in Beverly Hills. He has helped pen tracks for Justin Bieber, John Legend, Brandy, and Beyonce Knowles over the last few years. In 2011, Ocean released his debut mixtape, nostalgia, ULTRA, for free via his Tumblr.

Venting about his decision to drop the record his own way, he took to Twitter on March 1, 2011: “i. did. this. not ISLAND DEF JAM. that’s why you see no label logo on the artwork that I DID. guess its my fault for trusting my dumbass lawyer and signing my career over to a failing company. fuck Def Jam & any company that goes the length of signing a kid with dreams & talent w/ no intention of following through. fuck em. now back to my day. i want some oatmeal and toast. brunch swag.”

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 Tyler, the Creator states, “It’s Smooth Ass Music About Bitches, Relationships And Being A Rich Young Nigga…But In A Swagged Out Way.”

    He's done some really REALLY great tracks like "Novacane" and "Pink Matter" and "Thinkin Bout You", but Channel Orange is really seriously overrated. Most of the album is filler.

    Is it too much to hope he'll drop the album on his 27th birthday, which is in 3 weeks? I WOULD FUCKING DIE
