Frank Ocean's Wave

Good Afternoon, Hello, and What's Up everybody this is Raul Rodriguez aka The Renegade back with another musical topic and one that we all can be happy about. Most recently Frank Ocean..yes i said Frank Ocean has risen from the cave where he was creating master plans and dope projects for us to enjoy for a while. A good beginning of fall and end of summer present for us if might say. He just dropped his new album "Blonde" that a lot of people been dying for along with a magazine called "Boys Don't Cry" and a visual of his album Blonde. Talk about major moves from the comeback kid. From what I been seeing and hearing this album is definitely one to have on repeat and one of the biggest albums that is sure to break records on the top 200 billboards. I have not gotten a chance to listen to it but i definitely will be tuning in very soon to see how dope this album is.

According to Victoria Hernandez of Hip Hop dx this album was actually a independently released album on behalf of Frank himself. From the Hip Hop dx source it is said that "The singer has had a rocky relationship with Def Jam in the past as he was originally signed as a songwriter. He took to Twitter to blast the label in 2011 after he released his Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape, saying “i. did. this. not ISLAND DEF JAM. that’s why you see no label logo on the artwork that I DID. guess its my fault for trusting my dumb*** lawyer and signing my career over to a failing company. f**k Def Jam & any company that goes the length of signing a kid with dreams & talent w/ no intention of following through. f**k em. now back to my day. I want some oatmeal and toast. brunch swag.” Pretty strong words from the "Thinking about you" singer, nonetheless, understandable reasoning on why he did what he did and aid what he said. What do you think? do you believe what Frank did was wrong or did he have all rights to do what he did? check more info on Hip Hop dx
