Odd Future Book Glass House Show, Give Away Frank Ocean Mixtape
Frank Ocean, the latest addition to the Odd Future phenomenon, has been signed to a major label but released theNostalgia, Ultra
album as a free mixtape while waiting on the major label to invest money into his project. Below, his message to the masses:
"My name is Frank Ocean. I grew up in New Orleans. I'm from Odd Future. I wrote Nostalgia, Ultra in spring 2010. I think I have Synesthesia. I feel more like some type of visual artist than a musician when I'm working. I just mean my process is more about imagery. Maybe people wanna call it a certain genre because I'm a black guy singing. I don't really mind. To be honest, I don't think much about it. I categorize it in iTunes as bluegrass or death metal, usually. I'm pretty sure I have Synesthesia, though. I also wear a kippah from time to time. I smoke marijuana for anxiety. Oh, and I used to battle rap in high school."
