It takes true talent to command Nas’ attention. The hip-hop icon continues to single out Frank Ocean, calling him one of today’s brightest new stars.
“Frank Ocean is just a new gust of wind to move things out the way and give us something new,” the “Nasty” MC previously told Billboard of the Odd Future crooner, who’s worked with Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Beyoncé.
During a recent interview with Toronto’s Flow 93.5, he elaborated on who he was referring to, saying, “Just the garbage, the garbage pail kids out there that’s everywhere.”
The discerning Nas bestowed praise on the “Novacane” singer. “Everybody just don’t have it, so somebody that comes out like Frank Ocean and does it his way and sings his way, it’s fresh, it’s good for the game,” he explained.
The two have been in the studio together and Nas is counting on their collaborations to make his upcoming album. “I need Frank Ocean on the album. We actually started working, so I gotta finish it.”
Nas is expected to announce an official title and release date for his 10th album in the next week.
