Odd Future's Frank Ocean Collaborating with Nas
Published Apr 25, 2011All the hype surrounding bratty Californian rap crew Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All seems to focus on their loud, anarchic, bad boy behaviour. Odd Future associate Frank Ocean, however, is having similar attention at the same time despite the fact that he's a soulful R&B crooner. Following the breakthrough success of his recent Nostalgia/Ultra mixtape, Ocean now seems to be branching out even further by collaborating with none other than Nas.
Ocean recently announced the Nas collaboration on Twitter, though he remained mostly tight-lipped, writing, "just played nas a song...on piano. in that moment i realized, im getting a lil better at piano. i gotta keep practicing though... yea. nas. like 'top 5 dead or alive' nas... aite. imma shut up."
Nas followed this with the straightforward tweet, "In the studio with my little nigga @frank_ocean."
Though that news isn't much to go on, we're not too surprised Ocean has been in the lab with the legendary New York rapper. After all, Hypetrak points out that the Odd Future member was recently linked to Beyoncé in the studio.
While we don't have any new music from Frank Ocean to offer yet, amateur director Aris Jerome recently dropped a sexed-up unofficial video for the track "Songs for Women." On his Twitter, Ocean said, "sorry. but that songs for women video was a fail. Sorry." Decide for yourself below.
