LISTEN: Frank Ocean Raps/Reminisces About The Time Chris Brown Called Him A “Faggot”

frank oceanEarl Sweatshirt, member of hip-hop group Odd Future, whose name sounds like a character from Rocko’s Modern Life, has dropped a contemplative track featuring the imminently lovable Frank Ocean.

The song, called “Sunday” is “painfully honest,” starring Sweatshirt drawling over a minimal drum beat and a quiet synthesized organ loop. Taking on topics like drug use, homophobia, love, loss, and revenge, this anti-summer-jam probably won’t be getting a lot of radio play towards the end of this hot season.

What steals the show is Ocean’s nasty and deserved takedown of (what is clearly an allusion to this year’s earlier parking lot altercation with) Chris Brown:

They called me soft in high school, thank God I’m jagged / Forgot you don’t like it rough, I mean he called me a faggot, I was just calling his bluff / I mean how anal I gon’ be when I’m aiming my gun / and why his mug all bloody? That was a 3-on-1/ Standing ovation at Staples, I got my Grammy’s and gold.

Ladies and gentlemen, the library is closed, because Ocean just read the house down. Earl holds his own with his uniquely morose vocals and lyrics “I don’t know why it’s difficult to admit that I miss you … and if I hurt you, I’m sorry, the music makes me dismissive.

Earl Sweatshirt’s debut album, Doris, drops August 20, featuring guest appearances from Domo Genesis, Frank Ocean, Casey Veggies, Vince Staples, Tyler, the Creator, RZA and Mac Miller.

      I love Frank! I can listen to his whole album. I don’t like his rap flow as much as I love his smooth voice, but good for him. BTW who let the basement troll above out of his mom’s house? Someone call the bitch and inform her junior is off his meds again.

      @krisf77: I think he’s parodying a certain prolific Queerty commenter.
