"I'm Ms. Melodie and I'm a born again rebel/The violence in rap must cease and seckle/If we want to develop and grow to another level/We can't be guinea pigs for the devil/The enemy knows, they're no fools/Because everyone knows that hip-hop rules/So we gotta get a grip and grab what's wrong/The opposition is weak and rap is strong" -- Ms. Melodie on "Self Destruction"

Frank Ocean: [New Release] Channel Orange 7.17.12

 Frank Ocean - Channel Orange 

"Channel Orange" is the album title of Ocean's Def Jam debut which is scheduled for release Tuesday July 17th . This latest release is the most buzzed about project in the industry right now. However, that may be due to some controversy as Ocean recently admitted he was bi-sexual. A huge wake up call for the Hip-Hop community and maybe the retail giant, Target. They have decided they aren't interested in carrying Ocean's album on their shelves. Billboard reported the huge chain announced this decision after claiming low iTune pre-order sales. Like me your probably wondering if that risky move by Target was actually reaction to the fact that Ocean recently "came out".

His first studio album hit iTunes after a surprise appearance on Tuesday's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," a week before previously planned. Check out a sneak peek below. Wasn't much of a video but I think that was the point. I enjoyed the music though; you can't deny he's got talent!
