WHAT MAKES FRANK OCEAN A GREAT STORYTELLER?

Frank Ocean's double album Endless/Blonde was one of last year's most hyped about releases - seriously, the man can just be filmed doing carpentry and fans will salivate - and for good reason. Over his prior releases Nostalgia, Ultra, Channel Orange, various Odd Future cuts and his pre-stage name material, Ocean has established himself as a strong lyricist, able to immerse the listener in chapters of a life.

This YouTuber delves into how Ocean is able to accomplish this, whether it's through his myriad references to pop culture, his use of metaphors such as cars and his enigmatic public profile. It's an interesting take on an artist who'll excite us for years to come.
