Seems everybody wants to work with members of the OFWGKTA (a/k/a Odd Future) collective these days. Diddy and Jay-Z have both made efforts to sign the group to their respective labels. De facto group leader Tyler, The Creator has been collaborating with his idol Pharrell. And Frank Ocean, who has previously worked with Brandy and Justin Bieber, has been spotted in the studio with Beyonce.
Now comes word that Ocean, whose work mainly in the R&B genre, is collaborating with one of Hip Hop’s most respected icons, Nas. The Queens emcee tweeted last week that he and the young singer/songwriter were in the studio together.
In the studio with my little nigga @frank_ocean.
The pair’s work together will most likely end up on Nas’ forthcoming tenth studio album. That album is still, obviously, unfinished so no title or release date is known at this point. As for Frank Ocean’s solo work, the singer dropped his first solo release, Nostalgia, Ultra, earlier this year.
