Frank Ocean released his free Boys Don’t Cry magazine at four different locations around the world (LA, NYC, Chicago and London), and if you weren’t able to get your hands on one, one feature from the first issue of Boys Don’t Cry features none other than Kanye West.

Kanye West – The McDonald’s Man

McDonalds Man
McDonalds Man
The french fries had a plan
The french fries had a plan
The salad bar and the ketchup made a band
Cus the french fries had a plan
The french fries had a plan
McDonalds Man
McDonalds
I know them french fries have a plan
I know them french fries have a plan
The cheeseburger and the shakes formed a band
To overthrow the french fries plan
I always knew them french fries was evil man
Smelling all good and shit
I don’t trust no food that smells that good man
I don’t trust it
I just can’t
McDonalds Man
McDonalds Man
McDonalds, damn
Them french fries look good tho
I knew the Diet Coke was jealous of the fries
I knew the McNuggets was jealous of the fries
Even the McRib was jealous of the fries
I could see it through his artificial meat eyes
And he only be there some of the time
Everybody was jealous of them french fries
Except for that one special guy
That smooth apple pie

Frank Ocean drops ‘Blonde’ just days after releasing ‘Endless.’ Here’s how to listen.

Frank Ocean season is upon us. Just two days after his official return to music with Endless following a four-year silence, Ocean has released another full length LP: Blonde. It clocks in at 17 tracks and is available here on iTunes and Apple Music.

The album also comes with a print publication bearing the project name fans have long been waiting to read: Boys Don’t Cry. It’s currently being distributed in pop-up shops in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and London.

The album features “Nikes,” which Ocean dropped as a video earlier Saturday morning, as well as a feature from the similarly reclusive Andre 3000 on “Solo (Reprise).”

As on Channel Orange, his first full-length album, Blonde features white-noise interludes and characters’ dialogue to separate its tracks. The end of “Futura Free” captures a series of people being asked about their dreams, aspirations and secret talents. 

“Secret talents?” one voice responds. “I don’t know, I’m pretty open in everything I do.”

The album features all the transcendental, high-minded vibes Ocean has been instrumental in introducing to contemporary R&B. Blonde will likely prove to be the more commercially successful album of the artist’s two recent drops, but both are brimming with candid ballads. “I thought I was dreaming when you told me you loved me,” Ocean sings on “Ivy.”

Boys Don’t Cry clocks in around 360 pages according to Rolling Stone. It includes interviews with Ocean’s mom and Lil B, as well as a multi-scene screenplay written by Ocean. There are even horoscopes and a “hopes and dreams” section. 

Fans attending the pop-up shops throughout major cities began spreading photos of their experiences across social media:

Meanwhile, the rest of Ocean’s fans on Twitter, facing this flood of new content after such an agonizing wait, were understandably beside themselves.

Frank Ocean Just Released a New Music Video for the Track “Nikes”

Just only a day after releasing his visual album Endless, Frank Ocean drops fans another gift, this time in the form of an official music video for his new track “Nikes.” The NSFW video is a whirlwind of emotions which includes shots of A$AP Rocky holding up a photo of A$AP Yams and Frank holding up a picture of Trayvon Martin. While the track “Nikes” is not featured on Endless, this could be a hint at a possible new project dropping soon; the four year wait wasn’t in vain.

There’s a hooded leather jacket decorated with playing cards, a trucker jacket decorated with Renaissance art,  a fleecy Sherpa coat covered in roses, a Junya Watanabe-style patchwork jacket, and a zip-up sweater adorned with eagles. Strong stuff.
