Frank Ocean is in rare form.
Frank Ocean is an anomaly. He exists in rumors and his life is the stuff of legend. Rare is the day fans actually get a chance to hear from the revered artist, and yesterday was one of those days. It was only last November when Ocean opened the gates of his Instagram to the public. Fans flocked in and painstakingly scoured through years of posts that had only been seen by a fortunate few. Heâs one of the greatest artists of our generation, and also, the man pictured below.
Thatâs right. The purple and pink camouflaged du-rag, grills, and matching pink shirt all belong to one of the greatest artists of our generation. Presented with no comment other than a simple âð¬â emoji, Frank lets the commentators here do the talking. Tyler, the Creator writes, âthat NOLA seeping out.â Sage Elsesser wrote, âmaaaan why I thought you had on a velvet rag ð¶.â
Yesterday marked the three-year anniversary of Frank Oceanâs magnum opus, Blonde and, in conjunction, the release of his underrated classic, Endless. Both albums are masterpieces in their own right.
