A Nas/Frank Ocean Collab Was Lost

blame it on Shake July 5, 2012

According to a profile piece on the New York Times, Frank Ocean and Nas had a track recorded called No Such Thing As White Jesus that was lost forever..

There was also a collaboration with Nas, “No Such Thing as White Jesus,” that was unfortunately lost to a technological mishap. Mr. Ocean expressed regret that album deadlines prevented him from recreating the song from scratch, and he broke into song to capture what was lost:

Whatever you do, young king, don’t wind up dead
Young queen, cross your legs,
Put a crown on your head and remove the chains
Cause even diamond chains are for slaves,
Don’t set foot in no penitentiary
And don’t taste the poison
Don’t you bail on your families

Hopefully the two get back in the studio and recreate whatever magic was there. Until then, be sure to pick up both Channel Orange and Life Is Good on July 17.
