Frank Ocean Named GQ’s ‘Rookie of the Year’

Frank Ocean is capping off a banner year with a new accolade. The Odd Future affiliate has been named “Rookie of the Year” by GQ in the magazine’s annual “Men of the Year” issue. The singer-songwriter, who has worked with Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Kanye West, suits up in the black-and-white image and speaks about the renegade success of his debut Nostalgia, Ultra, which was released for free over the summer.

“I got to grab my nuts and point my middle finger up,” says the 24-year-old, who is currently prepping his first commercial album for release in 2012.
