I don’t know what happens now, and that’s alrite.
No one knows what happens now, this is a hip hop first! But Frank says “that’s alrite,” he doesn’t care what follows now. He has, at this stage of his career, written songs for John Legend and Beyoncé, was featured on the monumental “Watch The Throne” album, has released a critically acclaimed mixtape in “Nostalgia, Ultra,” and is less than two weeks away from releasing his first official album, “Channel Orange,” which will undoubtedly be a landmark moment not just for Frank Ocean, but for hip hop in general. Frank’s career up to now, from fleeing New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, to the present day, has been a phenomenal journey, one that will unlikely be slowed down by this statement.
“One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard was, ‘Continue doing what you’re doing.’ I’m going to continue to be guided, and continue to progress… Just keeping it moving. Continuing to do what I want to do.”
