I think everyone knows how you feel about the situation. No offense.
It's cool. I didn't realize how well my thoughts were known here.

Just saw that other Franky thread that got out of control.

I'm wondering if Earl is going to drop an album this year or not.

He should be in the studio working on it now.

It's not going to sell shit in terms of physical copies because Best Buy (the company for which I am employed) has underestimated it's expected sales. Our store only got 5 copies in and it sold out really quick. Many people left disappointed.
Makes sense, but as you can see predicted sales aren't always that accurate.

I guess I can see why you're using Best Buy as the rubric, but from what I understand, they're closing down their stores and they have competitors anyway. Their selection and prices aren't that great, either.

Hopefully. He's recording with the RZA next week. There's still the EarlWolf album, too. And an entire album with Matt. One of those needs to come out soon.

Keep in mind that Target isn't carrying it and Wal-Mart won't have any copies either, as they don't carry any albums with cursing.

Kind of off/in topic:

Everyone was wiggin out about Target not carrying the album. It was a breach of contract, which it was and was always the reason. Yet people thought it was because of his letter coming out. No the case and I tried explaining that to people...

Anyway, Target made headlines the other day because they are the first major retailer to offer same-sex greeting and marriage cards. I understand that this detail is somewhat small, but it's just something I thought about when it was on the news.

Basically just reaffirming the fact Target DID NOT pull Frank because he may or may not be gay. They aren't that kind of company.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Ocean

Just noticed his article has a "vandalism lock" on it, but it didn't before. People are so dumb. I was just at my friend's work talking to him about current, young hip hop artists and then I brought up Frank Ocean. His co-worker got mad and was like "He's gay! Ugh." And we were like: "So? Let him be." And he was like "Nah but he's gay tho, argh. A gay man."

Made me really annoyed and perplexed how angry people DO get over this stuff. I thought he was gonna knock some plates over, lol.

I think this early release thing cost him a #1 debut week, even if we count physical copies next week as his true debut. Still very happy for him, he deserves it. But Nas for #1 album next week please.
