One Year Later: Did Watch The Throne Really Change The Game?
The Rise Of Frank Ocean
Frank Ocean’s a self made guy. Grabbing the attention of the industry with the head-turning free album, nostalgia:ULTRA , Frank didn’t necessarily need to be on Watch The Throne for people to take notice. But it damn sure didn’t hurt. If you take an introduction’s importance as much as artists do, Frank Ocean having the first voice heard on this landmark album was a huge declaration. On an album extremely scarce on guest features, Ocean lands twice on this project and on arguably two of the album’s more thought provoking songs, “No Church In The Wild,” and “Made In America.”
