Frank Ocean fans are used to long waits in between projects but it seems with the success of 2016’s Endless and Blonde, Frank has grasped the impact that his music has on various audiences. So much so, that linking up with artists such as Calvin Harris and the Migos via feature over the past few months has kept fans on their toes for more. The track “Provider” was released as the VMA’s were being aired, succeeding in fans abandoning their TV sets in between commercials just to take head to this.
“Provider” begins with Frank’s vocals moving in and out with different lines seeming wordless. Throughout you can hear Frank’s ability to deliver vocals as if he is rapping with lines such as “Stiff smile just like I’m Aphex twin/Pat the Patagonia pockets, tryna find my zip”. The subject of talk seems to circle around tolerance and restraint. He touches on putting friends as well as significant others on hold, while compelling them to bide their time until he’s ready to build an act based on his intentions. Take four minutes and four seconds out of your day to receive this provision. As usual with Frank, disappointment isn’t a thing. I highly recommend that this song be apart of anyone’s library.
What’s a perfect formal introduction? I have no idea. After a few posts though, I figured it’s better late than never to get some common ground on what could be expected on this site where the music sets the vibes. I am Thomas DeScott, raised in Cleveland Ohio with a passion for African heritage, literature and above all music. Music, how I LOVE this word and everything that comes with it, especially the kind that creates a vibe the soul can grow with. I’m a current student at THEE Ohio Media School and I am loving every bit of my hands on journey towards being a broad force in the oh so broad world of broadcasting.
As mentioned I have a passion for African heritage, as I am a proud Rasta. Natural in all that I do and striving for peace and OVERstanding in this Babylonian western civilization. Nature, natural food from the earth, natural living and love are what stir my soul. I want to share this with everyone that I come in contact with.
I’ll be primarily reviewing and discussing with the help of my audience, black artists who aren’t in the mainstream spotlight. There will be no specific genre discussed, as all forms of music have beauty in them. I have no issues with artist who are in the mainstream spotlights, but I love sharing talents from those that are considered “underground” and/or “independent”. Overall I want to bring great discussion to the table while opening eyes to new even old artists alike that create an IRIE vibe. Irie; goodness and pleasing.
