OFWGKTA's Frank Ocean Talks Debut Mixtape

OFWGKTA's Frank Ocean talks to MTV about his debut mixtape 'Nostalgia, Ultra.'

California collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All has been turning a lot of heads within the industry lately with their blend of Neptunes-inspired production and lyrics raunchy enough to make Eminem blush. But none of the group's members is quite as surprising as the smooth-voiced crooner Frank Ocean.

Now, in a recent interview with MTV, Ocean opened up about his and OFWGKTA's sudden rise to fame. For an artist who has already inked a deal with Island Def Jam, hit the studio with Beyonce and even  graced the pages of the New York Times, Frank says that the most surprising aspect of his career thus far is that the Internet has been so acceptive of his debut project Nostalgia, 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," said Ocean. "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."

    Frank Ocean is the truth, see what lables miss out on=real talent(Def Jam kickin themselves in the ass for this blunder...smh)...this project should have been for sale!!!! The new movement in music is incredible...people quick to say evil, demonic, illuminati....these are the same people who BELIEVE everything they hear and don't take time to study, research and evaluate logically...Keep doing what you do Frank...the industry will not be able to stop you!!!!

    take it for wat it is...this is jus my opinion...hate on it or not...but my opinion on these dudes really aint too good...tyler the creator literally sounds like a demonic presence from another world...dude is 19 and 150 lbs soakin wet n sounds like that...everything these dudes represent is evil...and the fact that hip hop is actually accepting them is kinna sad 2 me...the level of desensitivity to evil is ridiculous to me nowadays...all that they embody is rape...hatred...suicide...self destruction and we take it in to our heads like that's normal...it kinda shows me where the majority stands in life with the fact that they even got a record deal...eminem...esham...they were bad...but this is really going too far...kanye west cosigned these dudes video...and the whole "illuminati" theory crap is relative...it has nothing to do wit this...but there is sumthing evil going on behind the scenes of the higher levels of this industry and the rest of the world...i jus pray to god that ppl start to see it..."Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.nd the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 john 2: 15-17....im sry i usually don't get spiritual on these sites or try to push my beliefs on ppl...but it's time for people to wake up b4 its too late...this is jus pure evil stuff man don't fall into it...y'all b e z...im prayin for ya

      I agree, but Necro is just one crazy muthafucker

    • Nunya

      Whoah...this is the very 1st negative comment I've heard about Odd Future. What they are doing is nothing new. Esham, Necro, the Insane Clown Posse, Brotha Lynch.... So...just my opinion-but go fuck yourself.

    • jeff87333

      btw...think it's jus me...listen to hopsin-gazing at the moonlight...stuff like that...it's real man...this music isn't jus music that's where we all got it twisted...it's reflection of ur own reality...that's how it gets made...ud have to be an artist to get it i guess

    • jeff87333

      id agree that i could been seen as judgemental if i never lived my life the same way that these dudes did at one point in my life...im an artist myself...and when i was writing music this way i was addicted to oxycontin...i was playin wit guns...i was legitimately possessed by spirits outside of myself...controlled by an influence outside of my own body...im not here to condemn ne one...they need god as much as ne1 else...my statement is made becuz i know the amount of influence that music has on a generation and throughout my life my musical taste only coincided with my lifestyle...bro i got open cases...im about 2 b off probation next month...this isnt coming from someone who hasnt been on the other side....but sum1 who has truly lived the other side...ive been thru the self destruction etc...and by telling me that it isnt right to judge is judging me in turn...is it not?...i believe that there is a difference between artistic expression and purely evil...i listen to rap music...and yes it's not perfect music...but most of it is real...(that's not including the mainstream artists)...it's something to do with being able to relate with a lifestyle...or respecting an artist for being lyrically gifted...im not perfect...no one is...but there's something different between purposeful evil and artistic expression...jus sum food for thought

      Not everyone believes in religion so get over it. Music is an art form where anything can be expressed. They're not literally going out and these things. Take it for what it is. If you are so passionate about your religion, stop listening to rap because the majority of it definitely doesn't fall in line with the Christian ethos. You seem a bit judgmental which isn't very Christlike.
