Frank Ocean is a Dick
So yeah Frank Ocean is kind of a dick right? I mean let's really think this through; we've been waiting on this second album for about 4 years now.....4 years! He's been teasing this second album forever, and if you glance around certain other artist twitter accounts its evident that the album is done, and has been done for some time. Frank Ocean hinted at dropping sometime in July if you were checking his album's website www.boysdontcry.co - yes a website which soul purpose is to promote his album!!! It's August 1st in case you're wondering. There is no album, but instead we got another teaser :) - This time it is a live stream hosted by the mega machine that is Apple Music. What is going on?!!? I have to be in the twilight zone, and yes I know the album has officially been announced to drop this Friday the 5th, and it could very well drop while i'm typing this out right now. I will take nothing I said back.
Let's have some straight talk here people, and maybe you have the answers I need, but who the hell does Frank Ocean think he is? Frankie has 1 studio album, lets count that, um 1. That is it. 'Oh it but it won a Grammy Tahchee' I don't care! Choke on it. That doesn't move me. Was Frank Ocean's 1 album a classic? No. Was Frank Ocean's 1 album great? Depends on who you're asking I suppose, but I'm the one writing this so NOPE. It was an OK first effort, and good at best.
Help me. Why is Frank Ocean acting like he dropped 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' - Man listen - Where does he get off dragging people along? He had an amazing underground presence with his mixtape, and random compilations of demos, and hats off to him bravo, but what has he done for you lately? Once he shot into mainstream stardom he began to fall apart. We found out early on that he was hit or miss live a fairly shaky live performer, and then came an album saved by a tornado that flew around a room meant for another artist all together, but all together was a lackluster piece of work carried by the public's curiosity in Frank Ocean, and glimmer of the work he had done in years past.
I am only inclined to believe that Frank Ocean and his team are purposely starving out his fans in hopes that it enhances this project he is poised to drop, and we'll eat it up blindly. Well Frankie you might fool them, but you won't fool me. You better deliver from the intro to the conclusion, or else! or else what you ask? I don't know. What I do know is you're a dick Frank Ocean. Channel Orange was an OK album, and you my friend have a lot to show and prove for your hiatus. Good luck. Dick.
