    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.

    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 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.

Ocean's dad, otherwise known as Calvin Cooksey is targeting Russell Simmons' Global Grind in particular, claiming the site has posted lies about him, as well as strangely taking them to task for never using his real name.

    Chipotle may fill our stomachs, but they're looking to burn a hole right through Frank Ocean's pocket.

The Fiona Apple cover of the "Pure Imagination" song from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory" done for Chipotle; that was supposed Frank Ocean's cover.

Bringing dark, lo-fi sonics, even darker lyrics and off-kilter humor to the table, the rest of the crew would soon follow him into the limelight.
