Rich The Kid Confirms Studio Session With Frank Ocean Jan 7, 2016 at 10:46am
Rich The Kid is one of the most consistent hustlers in the rap game, for real, dude is always on. Whether it's going to the studio or promoting himself in any way possible, the Quality Control rapper is on a mission to the money (and maybe a little fame along the way). Whereas RTK is constantly putting himself out there, Frank Ocean has become known as a recluse.

Frank Ocean is a man of few words, so when he forecasted a July release date for his second album earlier this year, fans took it as gospel. The album is still no where to be found. Ocean's younger brother Ryan Breaux thought he'd have a bit of fun with this fan anxiety by announcing on Instagram that the album had been released, writing "It's finally out! Link in my bio."

Tweet Beef: 5 Chris Brown Social Media Feuds Jul 15, 2015 at 06:07pm
Chris Brown’s publicist has to be a millionaire. Just think about the amount of damage control this person has to perform, on top of managing an already-polarizing figure. Despite lengthy stints in anger management and continued, sometimes confusingly-rabid fan support (like this stuff), the enigmatic Brown continues to play the role of the antagonist, engaging in countless reckless feuds on the mega-public stages of nearly every social media platform available.

Based God was right -- this was the statement Frank Ocean chose to share before opening up about his sexuality on Tumblr back in 2012. Obviously, Lil B has inspired the reclusive singer, and thus it makes sense that the Oakland rapper will be featured in his new magazine, Boys Don't Cry.

5 Songs You Didn't Know Frank Ocean Wrote Apr 7, 2015 at 05:47pm
By now, we all know Frank Ocean best as the Odd Future member who's peeled off and had arguably the most successful solo career of the whole crew. A ton of that is thanks to his solo material, with Channel Orange especially garnering a ton of positive reception, but Ocean's also made his mark on the R&B game as a guest vocalist and writer. High-profile collabs with Kanye and Jay Z have obviously done wonders for his notoriety, but behind the scenes, Ocean's written some big hits for star singers.

Frank Ocean & Lil B Are Working On New Music Together Dec 29, 2014 at 11:54am
Frank Ocean has been pretty reclusive over the past year. After releasing his debut album, Channel Orange, to both critical acclaim and Grammys (a weirdly rare feat to get both these days), he disappeared, deleting his Twitter account and rarely doing interviews. Still, we've been told that Frank has been working on his sophomore effort since only a couple months after Orange dropped, so as far as we know, he's been holed up working on music all this time.

Frank Ocean has taken a back seat when it comes to social media and all the drama it entails. He's also been low-key when it comes to music. Today the singer pops up in the news not because of any new music (although we hope that's on the way), but because he wants to legally change his name to Frank Ocean.

Frank Ocean's father hasn't been a part of the R&B singer's life since he was five years old, but he feels his reputation as a father has been wrongly tarnished, and he's seeking $142 million in compensation.
