In an article for the New York Times, Frank Ocean reveals he had a song with Nas which has since been lost.
With the news of Frank Ocean coming out of the closet, Ocean's name has been all over the internet as of late. The New York Times did a profile on the R&B singer at just the right time, taking a closer look into Frank Ocean's music andÂ past.
Ocean revealed that he had a song with Nas, which has been lost due to technological mishaps, called "No Such Thing as White Jesus." The singerÂ recited some lyrics from the song:
Whatever you do, young king, donât wind up dead
Young queen, cross your legs,
Put a crown on your head and remove the chains
âCause even diamond chains are for slaves,
Donât set foot in no penitentiary
And donât taste the poison
Donât you bail on your families
On his songwriting,Â Ocean says, "I wouldnât do it all if there wasnât that catharsis.Â Itâs definitely an extension of my talk therapy."Â
And on the success he'sÂ receivedÂ thus far: "When I did have some success, it further emboldens you to be like, 'No, Iâm just going to write what I feel I should write.'"
