Frank Ocean And Odd Future
We interrupted Frank's photo shoot with Nabil.
Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (aka OFWGKTA, or Odd Future for short) describe themselves as "a herd of unicorns who don't give a fuck and are talented." They're simultaneously brilliant, hilarious and terrifying.
We interviewed Frank Ocean, the oldest member of Odd Future (at 23!), for our June/July issue. Our friend, the wonderful Nabil, took some photos, which Frank has been posting to his tumblr. But, like you, we hate waiting —so here's an excerpt (we accidentally called while they were still shooting):
Ariane Halls: Hello. How did the shoot go?
Frank Ocean: We're still shooting! Leave us alone! Ask the questions!
I'm just kidding.
Do you like Nabil?
You can't ask me that! I'm sitting right next to him. No, I hate him; he's terrible.
He recently released his mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra on his website for free (a firm middle finger to his record label), stating:
[frank] my arms are tired.
[gurl] drop your album.
Hopefully he'll be in Sydney in June, when Odd Future make their Australian debut at Vivid Live. In the meantime, follow the collective on tumblr and Twitter —it's pretty entertaining: "By The Fucking Way; Instead Of Asking When And Shit, Why Don't You Go To The Fucking Website"; "Fuck Your New Year"; and to promote their spot on Jimmy Fallon (video below, featuring a cameo from Mos Def): "Yeah. We Have No Idea What Time The Show Comes On, Thats What The Fuck Google Is For. Swag. Feb. 16. Time To Scare White America."
