The Quick Rise And Fall Of Frank Ocean

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Rapper Frank Ocean was busted for possession of marijuana and had his license revoked all on New Year`s Eve.

According to TMZ, Ocean was pulled over for speeding in Mono County, CA for driving 90 mph in a 65 mph zone.


Upon reaching Ocean`s BMW, police reportedly smelled marijuana and found pot both on his person and in his car. His license was revoked on the spot as he was driving on a suspended license to boot. The Channel Orange musician was cited for marijuana and released. TMZ notes that Ocean`s passengers had to drive him home as he no longer had a license."


After a couple of mix-tape successes and appearances at the Coachella Festival as well as at Lollapalooza in 2012, R& B singer Frank Ocean was anointed as the second coming of Luther Vandross.

According to Wikipedia on July 4, Ocean published an open letter on his Tumblr blog recounting unrequited feelings he had for another young man when he was 19 years old, citing it as his first true love.

For that one unremarkable act of courage Ocean was hailed as a visionary, a prophet, and a great singer to boot.

Even though Ocean is still relatively unknown, all of a sudden he`s on every magazine cover, and everybody wants to collab with him.

Ocean has yet to pay his dues, and his personal life is a mess. Ocean is lucky to be alive after being busted for reckless driving and driving under the influence.

Ocean should hire a driver, clean up his messy habits, forget about all the false praise that`s been heaped on him, and try to make something of himself as an R & B singer.
