    On the next page are Frank Ocean’s words, my words, and a few other people’s words presented chronologically to offer a snapshot of the year of Frank Ocean.

    It was through his Tumblr that Ocean released previews, tracklists, songs, videos, and aphorisms from his life. His music and personality was initially disseminated around the world through this port, fueled in part by a cabal of Odd Future cohorts and Def Jam records, who put out his 2012 album channel ORANGE.
