Frank Ocean – Pyrite (Fool’s Gold)

What happens when you get a record deal in 2009, and nothing comes of it?  Well in Christopher Breaux’s case, you change your name to Frank Ocean, and prove yourself through songwriting and releasing a critically acclaimed mixtape.  After penning songs for the likes of Justin Bieber, Beyonce, and John Legend, Frank put his attention and focus into taking personal favorite songs  and singing new lyrics over the original music.  He then added some original material including the underground hit, “Novacane,” to make up his free mixtape, nostalgia, ULTRA.  With the release of the tape, as well as his affiliation to the young hip hop group, Odd Future,  he began to draw more and more attention ultimately leading to his guest appearances on Watch the Throne.   Check out his unique voice and songwriting skills on one of his early songs, “Pyrite.”
