Frank Ocean where have you been? Apparently making new music! In case you missed it, the singer/rapper released a new song recently, Chanel, and it may be just what the fans wanted. Especially if you were not feeling his recent albums, Blonde and Endless. 

We absolutely LOVE this track. It reminds us of the music and singles that first made us Frank Ocean fans. Frank dropped Chanel during the second episode of Blonded radio show on Apple Radio Friday and it now seems to be making waves with people everywhere. The song also has a version remixed with rapper, A$AP Rocky, which only makes it even more appealing.

Frank took to Tumblr to release the lyrics to the song in a true “artsy” kind of way:

frank ocean chanel lyrics hey mikey atl

We know that’s confusing so we have the lyrics posted on the next page. Happy listening!

[Verse 1]
My guy pretty like a girl
And he got fight stories to tell
I see both sides like Chanel
See on both sides like Chanel
Swimming laps through pool water
Heated like I’m underworld
Hide my tattoos in Shibuya
Police think I’m of the underworld
12 treat a nigga like he 12
How you looking up to me and talking down?
Can’t you see I am the big man? (Big man)
God level I am the I am (whoa)
Now film it with that drone cam
In the pink like Killa Cam
Put a zoom on that stick, Noé
Up so close I’m on that kill
Remote controller on your lower back
Yes the good
Dick could roll the eyes back in the skull
Rolling when you ride, poppin’
Rolling when you ride
Ride the Rodman
Got one that’s straight acting
Turnt out like some dirty plastic (Ride)
2016 burnt some discs
2017 ideas playing off a Walkman
This a cult not a clique on the net
With a cup in a cup, Actavis
That’s a double edge, “issa knife”
And I don’t like to fight ’til I’m fighting
Revenge in the air make my lungs sick
Chopper in the sky like a gun trick
Clips on clips like Mikey
It’s really all[Hook]
I see both sides like Chanel
See on both sides like Chanel[Bridge]
It’s really you on my mind
It’s really you on my mind
It’s really you
It’s really you on my mind[Verse 2]
V both sides of the 12
Steam both sides of the L
Freeze smoke rings and they hail
Sleet snow grind for the wealth
Whole team diamonds is real
Showed ’em how to shine by they selves
You need a cosign for your health
I need that bitch to grind on my belt
I know you need to try for my belt
I know you seen it driving itself
No matte black on the ride ’cause it’s stale
But it’s stealth

[Hook]
I see both sides like Chanel
I see both sides like Chanel

[Outro]
My pockets snug
They can’t hold my 7
They banned my Visa
My Amex and Mastercards
I got new money
And it’s all cash
I got new bags
And they all collabs
I rubber band a bunch of thousand dollar Delta gift cards
Amazing the cash online unknown
Blazing the dash counting money at home

My pockets snug
They can’t hold my 7
They banned my Visa
My Amex and Mastercards
I got new money
And it’s all cash
I got new bags
And they all collabs
I rubber band a bunch of thousand dollar Delta gift cards
Amazing the cash online unknown
Blazing the dash counting money at home

On Monday, Mr. Lamar’s “DAMN.” took home an even more elusive honor, one that may never have even seemed within reach: the Pulitzer Prize for music. Mr. Lamar is not only the first rapper to win the award since the Pulitzers expanded to music in 1943, but he is also the first winner who is not a classical or jazz musician.

“The time was right,” Dana Canedy, the administrator of the prizes, said in an interview after the winners were announced. “We are very proud of this selection. It means that the jury and the board judging system worked as it’s supposed to — the best work was awarded a Pulitzer Prize.”

She added: “It shines a light on hip-hop in a completely different way. This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers.”

All we can say is congratulations Kendrick! This is huge and we are over the moon happy for you. Mr. Lamar continues to push the envelope with his music, style, and mantra of activism! Dana is right this is a huge moment for hip-hop/rap, allowing others to recognized for their craft and contributions. What do you guys think of Kendrick’s big win?

Welcome To Emerald City

When it comes to who in Atlanta has and who does not there is a short list and then there’s a list that practically scrapes the stratosphere. Thankfully one Atlanta artist and actor is daring to break the stratosphere, becoming a rising star of the Web World and music world!

Martel Star is his name, winning is his game, and if you haven’t heard of him there’s a ledge on Spaghetti Junction you can step off of!

We first met Martel back in 2015, when he first began his acting career in a fledgling web series that never quite made it to production. That project may have fizzled but Martel has done everything, but that. “I’m just always determined to be the best me I can be. God’s blessed me with the ability to do a lot and I just know that my talent is going to take me some really amazing places…it is already is actually!” 

Indeed, Martel Star has made some serious moves in the last year with his appearance in noted web series, 7th & Love and Rahim Brazil’s Twisted. “Acting has really been taking off for me and I’m very happy about that [He laughs]. I definitely consider myself blessed for the opportunities I’ve been given and I’m actually about to be in a new web series that I can’ give the details on yet…” Martel made waves in his role on Twisted as “Nick,” an HIV positive gay man looking for love in all the wrong places. “Y’all know y’all love Nick! I’ll definitely be reprising that role in ‘Twisted 2’ [sequel/Season 2 of Twisted]…I really enjoyed playing that character because I feel like people relate to him a lot…we’ve all been played a little or been the person pining after someone. But he has a lot of strength and he really grew as the season progressed…”

As aforementioned Martel is not only a great actor, but an equally amazing artist. The boy can rap with the best of them and is constantly working to be greater and push the envelope to stardom. His latest musical venture involves a new EP, Welcome To Emerald City! The EP not only showcases his talents, but really set the bar for other indie rappers out there. “This [EP] has been a long time coming and I’ve put a lot of love and time into it–it’s my baby! The album definitely has something for everyone and you will be able to have fun and turn up to it!” Martel goes on to reveal the origins of his EP’s name. “Well I absolutely love ‘The Wizard of Oz!’ [And] I feel like Atlanta is Emerald City…It’s Black Hollywood, all the music and entertainment is coming from out here. It’s like the Black Mecca and land of opportunities just like Emerald City is where Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and The Lion went to get what they needed.”

Atlanta may very well be the launching pad for what will undoubtedly be an amazing career for Martel Star. However, it will be his charisma, talent, and will to be the best that will keep him there and rocket him to the top. “I’m ready for it all, and it’s going to be lit! I know I’m ready for it all and I’ll be giving the people a show!” Still, don’t take our word for it. If you are in Atlanta come and check him out at Welcome To Emerald City’s Release Party!  It all goes down at the Liquid Lounge, 150 Pine Street Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30308 at 5 PM EST! You can download Welcome To Emerald City on ALL digital platforms! Happy Listening!
