As far as Frank Ocean is concerned, coming out is the least bit of news that people should be concerned with.
He is the synthesis of a new generation that will embrace him not just in spite of the hate that’s out there in the world, but precisely because of it, but as always, his music is the headlining story.
Musically, he’s already achieved the seemingly impossible, by having NO ALBUM and being the only featured artist on Jay Z’s and Kanye West’s monumental Watch The Throne album. What did they see in him? I think they saw themselves. A person being themselves against all odds and taking a chance by putting his authentic voice out in the world. Listen – What do you hear?
He’s still the man – easily. And just added to my Breaking Bread list.
