My love for Frank Ocean runs deep and it’s mainly because of how random he is. I find him to be some what of a mystery. He gives his fans something they love ether its an album we all be waiting for, beautiful songs like ‘Chanel’, but in this case it would be a photo essay & personal letter exclusively for i-D magazine. 32 pages filled with Frank’s high energy in LA. Going through his time in touring & performing at summer festivals. Frank also shows us the power of saying no and his love for sauce. Ocean pays homage to all the people involved with his tour life including artist, photographers, the band, the orchestra and more.

“You can answer a lot of questions with ‘Yes.’ But you can answer many more with ‘No.’ No is run of the mill. Yes is a gem. Whenever I feel alone I watch live television, something about it being okay on their end makes it okay on mine. Onstage one in-ear is my mic feed and the other one is a Tim Ferriss podcast. I go long periods without talking but I raise my voice when the people on the phone are in loud places. I’ve never given my fans nicknames because the ones I think of are embarrassing. I’m world famous. I had peace in my twenties. Big Pharrell praying hands those weren’t mutually exclusive. If you want to make your 30s sound appealing just mention ‘sexual prime.’ Re: the photos… as Karl Lagerfeld would say they ‘came to me in a dream.’ Summer two thousand and seventeen. We leaned into it. Bananaberry flavored candies at the bottom of the cup. I’ll never know why or what’s with campouts for Szechuan sauce at McDonalds. But I’m way into it. Issa Dreamworld. If you liked two thousand and seventeen then you’ll lovdse two thousand and eighteen.”
