Odd Future – Oldie (Video)

During a photoshoot with Terry Richardson, Lance Bangs ended up filming the Odd Future crew as they spit their verses to “Oldie” for an impromptu music video. Watch this whole thing. It’s a geek fest. Is it me or is Frank Ocean the only dude who looks like he doesn’t really fit in here? He murders his verse though. OF Tape Vol. 2 available now.

Frank Ocean – Whip Appeal

Always down for some new Frank. Apparently this didn’t make the cut for Mr. Ocean’s latest mixtape nostalgia, ULTRA. Frank took to his Tumblr to put it in his own words as he claims “Whip Appeal” is “something to drive, or jog to.” How was this left off? Dude is a machine.

Frank Ocean – White

Looks like a few Odd Future leaks have coincided to hit the internet. One of those tracks happens to be a short solo from Mr. Ocean entitled “White.” Sounds like Frank is just showing off for a quick 2 minutes here. Odd Future Tape Vol. 2 drops March 20.

Frank Ocean – Thinking About You (Radio Version)

So I was undecided if I was going to to post this or not, and well here it is. The final radio version has been released because it has become Frank’s latest official single. You can instantly hear the difference from the original (which I may add was in heavy rotation on my playlist for about 3 months) but it still sounds great. Hopefully Frank will maybe inform the people on an album release date soon?

Frank Ocean Insists He’s “Paying Homage” to The Eagles

We discussed earlier this week how Don Henley of The Eagles was threatening to file legal action against Frank Ocean for Frank’s track “American Wedding” which samples the classic hit “Hotel California.” After Frank responded and said he thought it was “fucking awesome” that Henley was threatening to sue, Frank took to his Tumblr last night to further address the issue.

“I guess if I play it at Coachella it’ll cost me a couple hundred racks. If I don’t show up to court, it’ll be a judgement against me and will probably show up on my credit report. Oh well. I try to buy my shit cash anyway. They also asked that I release a statement expressing my admiration for Mr.Henley, along with my assistance pulling it off the web as much as possible. Shit’s weird. Ain’t this guy rich as fuck? Why sue the new guy? I didn’t make a dime off that song. I released it for free. If anything I’m paying homage.”

Now apparently, the word on the street is that Don Henley didn’t actually call for legal action himself but it was his label, Warner Music Group. In fact, Don doesn’t think Frank is “paying homage” at all and claims his usage of the beat isn’t just a sample, but actually the whole melody. Is Frank going to perform this during his next live set? Who really knows…

Don Henley Threatens to Sue Frank Ocean

Well it looks like Don Henley of The Eagles isn’t too happy with Frank Ocean’s rendition of the 1977 classic “Hotel California.” According to multiple sources Mr. Henley says he will take legal action if young Frank continues to perform the song. Frank took to his tumblr account to say that “Don Henley is apparently intimidated by my rendition of ‘Hotel California’,” and he is unlikely to perform the track again until the sample matter is resolved. However, it didn’t seem as if Frank was offended by Don Heneley’s threat. Franks response?

“He threatened to sue if I perform it again. I think that’s fuckin’ awesome.”

Odd Future – Odd Future Mixtape Vol. 2 (Artwork)

Tyler The Creator reveals the artwork for the upcoming Odd Future mixtape dropping February 20th. The mixtape will feature new music from Tyler, Domo, The Internet, Mike G., Hodgy, Frank Ocean, Left Brain and the rest of the crew. Geek to their boy/skater/Odd Future member Lucas Vercetti as his smiling mugshot is the face of the mixtape. Hilarious.

Frank Ocean – Disillusioned (Live)

This is from a couple months back, but I had to share with everybody. Supposedly off Frank’s upcoming album. He has only performed this song LIVE up to date. This is the best footage I can find with the best sound quality. I really wish we had a full CDQ version because it would take over my top tracks on the playlist. No mp3 version yet. Just live footage. I can’t stop listening to this beat honestly. Makes me just want to snap and groove straight up. Can’t wait to hear the finished product.

Tori Kelly – Thinking About You (Frank Ocean Acoustic/Beatbox Cover)

First of this Frank Ocean track is amazing song to begin with. Second, this cover/beatbox show is pretty amazing. I love acoustic covers, but I’m obsessed with acoustic/BEATBOX covers. Big chick beatboxing got swag for days. Like she’s going to be a youtube sensation because she’s a good beat boxer. Thats awesome. Props to Tori Kelly too, she does an amazing job on the vocals and strings as well. All around great cover. I dig it.
