  • Steven145

    Can’t believe he gay though… Disappointed with what he about but fuck it… Can’t judge
    His music don’t fail

  • zachariah

    This will be really interesting, he deserves to sell shitloads. I hate talking about numbers but his followers jumped up hundreds of thousands in light of his bi-sexual openness, he could seriously move some units.

  • This brotha made a refrence to Majin Buu!!!

  • prejudice dumbasses

    ^^^ agreed. fuck these guys who stopped riding with him after that. real talk, i hope u homophobes end up in a small locked room with a super horny faggot.

  • J

  • J

    Oh yeah, fuck two dope boys!

  • ryan

    wow i cant get the album until it hits stores on tuesday so i download the leak. my favorite rapper & singer on a song together. frank ocean is alrady a legend its scary how great he is so early in his career.

  • Jus Sayin

    Dis nigga don’t like the pink he like the stink this a cool track even though it was done by a gay nigga who suck cock

  • Obama Fried Chicken

    just heard the album, its ALRIGHT. People are def blowing him up after his confession but based on music: the music is OKAY. Its a C- in my book, this album was waaaay hyped – my timelines on facebook and twitter is going nuts right now (No pun intended). Nostalgia, Ultra is still his best work and I don’t even like the whole album really except the covers.

    My guess? He’ll become even more mature in his sound as time goes by but I’m not sold, especially its hard for me to connect with an homosexual that makes songs about other men. Don’t get me wrong, nothing against Gays but I can’t relate emotionally. If someone chooses to makes songs about animal love, I will feel the same way. Guy is a phenomenal lyricist however, that’s where the album just shines the most.

  • DatDude704

    According to Big Boi’s Twitter, Big Boi was supposed to be on this song w/ Andre AND another T.I. song but 3 Stacks doesn’t want an Outkast appearance on somebody else’s album

  • Mischief

    3K is a weird dude when it comes to music.

  • Mischief

    Was referring to @DatDude704’s comment^

  • FakirWise

    This was a good listen, always looking for a 3k verse.

    I believe that’s brain grey matter….

  • Maccaveli

    What’s up with everyone saying he doesn’t like women? He obviously does, he never said he’s completely gay. Dude admitted to falling in love with one man, he still probably gets more pussy than 99% of you guys.

  • $$$

    Still bummed at the lack of an extended Acura Integurl though.

  • TreeZ

    ^quit defending a dude you don’t know you queer

  • KD


  • amazing

    dis faggot makes good music whateva

  • Ermac

    Why does everyone hype this gay nigga up his music has always been medicore at best with the exception of a couple ok tracks dude doesn’t have much range and most of his tracks make a nigga wanna go to sleep


    if you fuck with this faggot nigga frank ocean, you enjoy sucking dick. 3 stacks talking about swallowing wood on this track makes it even more gay.

  • Obama Fried Chicken


    lol @ “he never said he’s completely gay”

    hahahahaha you’re funny bruh, he never said he’s completely gay”

    There is a paradox in that sentence but I’m guessing you’re either in denial or delusional or maybe you’re homosexual yourself to realize it either.

    no shots were fired bruh, nothing against ya but I always lie tho……..I bet you didn’t even catch that one too lol

  • reflect

    big fan of nostalgia, ultra. at first listen was a little disappointed wit this.

  • * Name

    yes obama fried chicken shit, you can be partly gay. hence being bisexual. your idiocy shines bright through the internet. 8/10 for getting me to respond to ur closet ass


    damn was expecting more but ill give it a couple more listens i thought miguel would of been the rnb singer come out and say he was gay but he actually has them usic to back his hype up

  • LB

    Thanks for the OF post.
    FUCK 2dopeboyz btw

  • Darth Yeyo

    @FRANK OCEAN IS A FAGGOT major co-sign bruh, I don’t know how any heterosexual male can bump this dude’s music knowing that he is singing to other men but I guess it the times we live in where most dudes are pussy, sissy, and bitchmade

  • Obama Fried Chicken

    @* Name

    well, this is a great set of skills! you can tell im gay by analyzing my words, bravo my nigga!

    i guess i am gay according to you, well…thats relief then. I’m glad you got that out of me, i never knew i had such a love for dick.

    “partly gay” what does that mean again? I thought gay is gay. lmao I honestly don’t know where you’re going with this plus you convinced yourself already that”partly gay” exists. nigga, if you like men, you gay. PERIOD. No partly dumbass. Frank can like women too but its not like an equation dumbass. “partly gay”

    is there such thing as “partly straight”

    It obvious you pink meat bruh bruh, its obvious on how you defend this LoL!

  • ColorMeBrooklyn

    ‘prejudice dumbasses’ up top defending gays by use a gay slur #Classic haha

    smh Listening to LP for an hr now. Game Changer …thats how good it is. He deserves all the success in the world

    Check out Rashad’s ‘Museum’ also

  • wow this is what music has been missing im downloading his album now.hopefully its filled with bangers like this one!!!!

  • XI

    I hate commenting here! it, in a way couples me in with you idiots.


    If you’re are so disgusted by him(now)..


  • Ha

    A lot of fags in the c section showing love for their boy Frank Ocean

  • cpb

    this nigga gay as hell! anybody who bump this shit gay too.

  • $$$

    So if Michael Jackson actually did touch little boys does that make every dude that respects MJ gay for little boys too? Love your logic.


    Idk…Kind of hard listening to Frank now since he came out. Just very confused on who he is singing about, man or woman??? I don’t wanna like a song that he made for a guy because i’m not gay but at the same time, I listen to Jeezy and I’ve never sold coke either. Frank Ocean’s music is really good but where do I draw the line with this guy???


    @$$$ A bitch dont bring MJ in this

  • Prejudice Dumbasses


    who was defending gays? refer to my name before you imply anything, FAGGOT.





  • * Name

    @Obama Fuckaboy Chicken style

    -how u managed to mix the word “idiocy” up with me calling you gay is an issue your crackhead folks are gunna have to take up with the public school system.

    “if you like men, you gay. PERIOD. No partly…”
    besides your illiteracy, i’m also guessing you’re really close-minded or very scared of gays. sad life you live boy.
    YES. there are partly gay people in the world but convincing you of that would be less likely than breaking water from stone. we’ll just call them “bisexual” though. like i said in the last statement. fuck boy

  • smh at this dumb nigga bruh

    u obviously didnt listen to the whole album or you wouldve heard the gay song in the album named Forrest Gump

  • what a gay boy

    Obama Fried Chicken is an obvious troll and you fags are feeding from his palm. You can tell from all the love notes he posts on 2dopeboyz daily.

  • blu hippie

    @smh at this dumb nigga bruh

    what Frank does is, like on “Forrest Gump,” when he’s singing maybe from a female perspective or whatever, it’s a STORY, it’s a world that he created.

    It’s not necessarily his personal—like something that he’s experiencing. Maybe it is and it’s a metaphor the way he did it, but I’m just saying if you listen to the record you could tell he’s so good at creating these entire worlds from some of the songs. That being said, I don’t think at any point anyone has ever questioned where his intentions were and I think that’s why his songs connect so well. Frank Ocean is the best song writer in the history of song writing.

  • Master Lee

    I just listened to Channel Orange. I have to say I’m very impressed. I think its a classic. You guys can hate on Frank because of his sexual orientation but you cant deny the music. Frank Ocean is about to sell mad records. I couldnt be happier for him because he deserves it.

  • only close minded low ass home trolls would think like dat, its funny how yesterday all of u closet fags were dickriding frank today u talkin bout what is right and what is wrong? fuck outta here losers u cant define borders.

  • this whole “im not going to listen to his music now cos he’s gay” or bi or whatever is fucking stupid. when you listen to his music, the reason why you can relate to it is because it evokes relatable emotions, no matter how substantial or mirroring, from previous experiences from your own life.

    not at one point do you think to yourself: “hey, this nigga frank had a really cool relationship with this girl.” that’s not what’s running through your mind, so the fact that people are rebuking him as an artist and his music now that they’ve discovered the true nature of his sexual preference, and whether the songs he’s penned were to this male love interest of his or not when you were once fans speaks more about you guys than it does him.

    at least the guy’s honest and isn’t ashamed of who he is which a lot more than you and i can say for probably 70% of the people we know.

  • Will

    Grow the fuck up. If Shake & Meka were to say they were gay that wouldnt stop you fucks from coming to this site everyday. GROW THE FUCK UP! THIS IS HISTORY IN THE MAKING!

    Wait…so this ISN’T Gay hip-hop blog for the homo community? O_o

  • Jtron

    Dope beat.

  • Guy who drew on his hat.

    My dude said Eye Candy… Majin Buu! Frank Ocean is one of my favorite singers, really one of the only ones I listen to. Who gives a flying fuck if he’s gay. Sexual Orientation doesn’t determine how well you can make music. OFWGKTA

  • brite

    Shake and Meka have been Hip-hop’s premier interracial couple since 2007, everyone already knows this shit.

    Also the album is better nostalgia so that’s good.

  • Maga D

    shit’s smooth. Never really liked Ocean, but I could see myself buying this.

  • Gengar

  • moreffa

    this nigga a faggot he dont like nothing pink

  • Jay daniels

    If you saying u won’t listen to frank becos u can’t relate to him singing bout guys, in theory that means you should stop listening to all female singers. stop being discriminative and let’s talk about the talent.

  • FakirWise

    Suddenly in the world of hip hop and r&b, after a man announces his sexuality; every word he says is taken at face value.

    Half the time, you can’t tell if he’s speaking to a man or a woman. If he never announced his sexuality, you all would have still believed it was to a woman. Some fickle people here, no woman wants a man with an undeveloped child-like mind.

  • dboss

    I bet half of you fucks listen to Mike all the time…justsayin

  • Obama Fried Chicken

    [email protected]@@ the TROLLS that are taking my comment seriously, i barely didn’t even diss the guy.

    Its funny how other people are gay bashing, calling him a faggot, roasting him and wishing death on him on the other comments but you guys want to argue with me about if hes “party gay” “1/4 gay” or “2% gay”???? LoL! Only sweet niggas would bring this upon themselves LoL!

    I applaud you and so does LGBT community on your effort to stop gay bashing online because clearly, I’m one of them

    Stop responding to my comments and go make a difference in your community my nigga

  • D. Real

    Elton John, Freddy Mercury, George Michael, Michael Stripe… Plenty others… No one has shunned these people or their music. Art is art regardless of the artist. But then again this is the black community and not often are we faced with an black artist being true to themselves in the limelight.. I guess it’s expected. His decisions have no bearing on my nor most of our lives and the music speaks for itself. It should be left at that. It’s a beautifully crafted album, in my opinion.

  • honestly?

    Album was nice. I think I like Nostalgia, Ultra more. But I’ll give it a few more listens though because it’s a completely different vibe.
    But I do find it funny that the same dudes who would’ve fucking with his music of they didn’t know he was gay are the same ones who probably talking him up for the last year+ #smh

  • honestly?

    And as for him maybe making songs about dudes, why does it matter? You can’t tell (excluding Forrest Gump), it’s not like he’s getting into specifics. He’s talking about the emotions of love, which is universal (same emotions whether you’re hetero or homo). Just sit back & enjoy the music. And as long as he’s not blatantly talking about males (because I can’t relate) I’m fucking with the music…

  • honestly?

    @D. Real. It’s a black community thing. Hip hop & rap always use gay as an insult. So because that’s what the majority of our community listens to, gay being a bad thing is all they know. Comments on iTunes don’t even bring up his sexuality. Just what they think about the album.
    If someone wants to live their life a certain way, I say let them (as long as they’re not hurting other people). It doesn’t effect me…

  • the album was dope honestly support the nigga because he deadass ripped every song on it. enough with the gay jokes ya still listen to that faggot lil wayne who kissed birdman on the fucking lips so cop the album and enjoy the music whether he wrote it for a girl or not its still good.

  • * Name

    Yo how fucking old is Obama Fried Chicken? It doesn’t even look like the fag read the responses. He just skimmed it then typed up his comment for attention. Nigga ur either a young retard or an old bitter bitch. Choose up

  • Jumpman23

    Some dudes on here are obviously very uncomfortable with their sexuality if an artist being gay or bi-sexual is unsettling to them. The only people who are uncomfortable with gay people are people who have doubts about their own sexuality or people who are just ignorant. Minorities especially should be very sensitive to the gay community. Do you like it when people call you a “nigger” or use all sorts of stereotypes to generalize you? Well, it’s exactly the same thing that applies to homosexuals. As a straight dude I have no problem at all bumpin this album at ignorant levels.

  • Who is Obama?

    Who the fuck spams LMFAOAOAO like that? Only girls do that shit on text dude, straight up

  • Smhlames

    Not sure some of these ppl know what a Troll is. I’m referring to @Obama

  • For people saying “he was making songs for dudes”, or “how do I know if he was making songs for girls or dudes?”, he clearly says in his songs words like: she, girl, her, woman (or women). Prime example, his popular song “Novacaine” [I took a seat on the ice cold lawn, she handed me an ice blue bong…girl, I can’t feel face what are we smoking anyway?]

    I know y’all listened to the shxt heavily, so stop fronting. You don’t have anything to prove here.

    Song is cool.

  • jbc

    Good song, but stop hyping him as the best song writer..he hasnt even put out the album yet and nostalgia was just mellow. Felt there was more uhhhh ahhs and ooos than lyrics. amy wine over frank anyday

  • John

    People hating on this guy for his sexual preferences are just sheltering themselves from good music. It’s their loss. Love is love, it doesn’t change if it’s a dude loving a dude or a dude loving a girl.
