After almost two years of languishing near the bottom of Def Jam’s 50-artist roster, Frank Ocean took matters into his own hands, releasing his Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape with old friends Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All earlier this year. Mixing original tracks with riffs on samples as unlikely as Coldplay’s “Strawberry Swing” and spawning a genuine R&B hit in the Tricky Stewart/Midi Mafia–produced “Novacane,” the tape ended up being the crew’s best since mysterious teen phenom Earl Sweatshirt’s eponymous Earl. Needless to say, his label bosses finally started paying attention and have now sent him off on the road in support of the tape’s upcoming, more official Nostalgia, Lite re-release.
