Odd Future associate Frank Ocean has wasted no time airing out his issues with the Los Angeles Police Department following an arrest by publicly unleashing his frustrations through Twitter.
Writing on his Twitter page, Ocean described his problems with the LAPD.
"just got out of jail," he tweeted April 29th. "would like to go on the record saying..f*ck the police. f*ck a cop, non-stop. frank will never speak to a cop again in his natural life. i have no respect for police."
"i swear if i weren't sane in mind i'd throw a f*ckin molotov in a cop car right now."
"cuh had napoleon complex. and seemed really sad that he was on that lame a** bike patrol"
"now im finna listen to blackenedwhite and play a videogame with copkiller imagery in it"
"shout out to @kellyclancy for posting my bail."
"honestly, i wouldnt be this mad though if i werent hungry. whats open right now? i havent eaten in 30 hours at least."
"asked the pig yesterday, why he chose to be a pig..his response "it's the only job where u can kill someone and goto work the next day." (Frank Ocean's Twitter)
Reports claim Ocean was officially bailed out by his manager.
Odd Future's co-manager Kelly Clancy posted his bail in the early hours of Friday morning, but no further information was disclosed. Ironically, Ocean plays a police officer in the video for bandmate Tyler, the Creator's upcoming video "She," which was shot earlier this month in Los Angeles. (Rap-Up)
As of late, Ocean has been making his rounds with rap veteran Nas.
Odd Future is everywhere these days, even in the studio with Nas. The hip hop collective's lead crooner Frank Ocean has been making waves off his Def Jam shelved debut effort Nostalgia, Ultra. The work was released for free via Ocean's Tumblr page and since then, the singer/songwriter has been in demand. The artist has now been tapped by Nas for a collaboration. (RapFix)
Ocean's background reportedly revolves around New Orleans and Los Angeles.
What do you when you move thousands of miles away from home to pursue a career, get signed to a major record label, and nothing happens? If you're Frank Ocean you stop waiting for the powers that be to make a move and take matters into your own hands. The New Orleans-born, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter has become one of music's hottest commodities in a matter of weeks--but overnight success never occurs as quickly as it appears. Before his stellar self-released debut, nostalgia,ULTRA, was clocking downloads at an unprecedented pace, the 23-year-old's career was held up by obstacles ranging from Hurricane Katrina to industry politics, but those days are over.
