FRANK OCEAN – ENDLESS

It’s certainly been a long time coming, but we finally have some new music from Frank Ocean – it’s just not quite what you might have expected.

Premiered earlier this week on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, Logic releases ‘Wrist’; a Pusha T-featured ode to the two artists’ drug dealing past and relentless pursuit of success.  It’s also no doubt also a nod to Chedda Da Connect’s infamous ‘Flicka Da Wrist‘, but let’s not go there. Produced by Logic himself along with 6ix, the…

Pusha T follows ‘Untouchable‘ with a second track from upcoming album ‘Darkest Before Dawn’, featuring The Dream.  ‘M.F.T.R.’ sees Push take aim at those more focused on showing off the trappings that come with financial success, rather than the success itself, over a beat co-produced by Boi-1da and Hudson Mohawke.  ‘Darkest Before Dawn’ is scheduled…
