Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean is the singer from OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) a new hip hop collective that is extremely experimental but still feature the vintage hip hop taste we all love. Good flow and metaphors etc...

Frank Ocean however, is on a different level. The singer-songwriter has been signed to Def Jam and apparently wrote songs for Justin Bieber (?!) along with a number of different artists but after being ignored a number of times joined the OFWGKTA. It's took him around two years to finally establish himself and create his own EP - Nostalgia, Ultra.

He has a vast array of influences that range from Coldplay, MGMT and Radiohead - and refuses to pigeon-hole himself to a single genre of music. Following his uprising he has begun to work with Nas on his new album and worked with Pharrell Williams.

After hearing his EP I expect nothing other than big things from him, catchy beats with complex (and obviously well thought) lyrics. Amazing talent like this can be slept on.

Notable Tracks:

Frank Ocean - Novacane

Frank Ocean - Swim Good

Frank Ocean - Songs For Women
