R&B’s controversial crooner and spirited songwriter Frank Ocean has been out of the limelight for quite some time since releasing his hit debut album “Channel | Orange” back in July of 2012. Since then he’s had a run in with Chris Brown, been on tour and worked on a few great projects such as Jay Z’s “Magna Carta | Holy Grail”. Aside from that we haven’t really heard anything about talks of his plans to get back into the lab until recently. Last night, Frank took to his tumblr (again) to make a brief statement about where he’s been and what’s been going on since he’s been away. Read it in it’s entirety below.
mind is pretty blank right now. i’m sitting in my kitchen listening to age of consent by new order. i like this song.. i fuck with that gwen stefani song ‘cool’ too, i never knew 3000 played keyboards on it- sounds like some teen coming of age movie. i used my birthday week pass to stay in my apartment for too long.. sit still and catch up on some information. i saw that movie ‘glengarry glen ross’ and ‘bottle rocket’, ‘pi’, ‘blackfish’ (sea world is the devil), ‘this is the end’ (hahaha), ‘the purge’(smh), some funny horror movie i forgot the name of ‘…’ . my homie in aussie suggested that i read ‘mr. norris changes trains’.. the writing was really nice. i read ‘the new jim crow’ it made me not fuck with humans for an hour. oh and ‘diffficult men’ which talked about great tv ..dexter, the wire, the sopranos, breaking bad and whatnot. i didn’t watch any news or read it …figured all that shit was gonna happen either way. i’m back to work these days.
