#TBT: Revisit Frank Ocean's 2012 opus "Pyramids."

This morning, HNHH confirmed with Rich the Kid that he has been in the studio with Frank Ocean. Ocean, of course, is a notorious recluse, and any shred of evidence leading us to believe that he's working on his sophomore album A.) is worth nothing, and B.) sends us for a loop, back to his 2012 debut album Channel Orange.

Channel Orange delves into drugs, wealth, and relationships, and "Pyramids" is its centerpiece, its most ambitious song. At 10-minutes in length, with several sonic twist and turns and a lyrical aura of timelessness, "Pyramids" is a modern R&B's answer to Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." From ancient Egypt to the strip clubs of the 21st century... she's working at the pyramid. 

Quotable Lyrics

Set the cheetahs on the loose
There's a thief out on the move
Underneath our legion's view
They have taken Cleopatra
