Review #148: channel ORANGE, Frank Ocean

#148: channel ORANGE, Frank Ocean

In a rare moment of insight, the RS blurb mentions that this album came during a time when being openly gay as a rap artist wasn’t quite so common. I don’t pretend to be an LGBT history expert but I do know that ten years ago is a lot longer than we tend to think it is. Frank Ocean walked so Lil Nas X could run.
