Nobody else holds as much power over the path you travel over 2017’s 365 days. This is no more evident than in the life & times of Frank Ocean.
Random? Not really. Frank Ocean burst back onto the music scene in 2016 after four years of relative obscurity.

Well here is a top 10 list of quotes from Frank Ocean that will put things into perspective and hopefully make you look at 2017 with a brand new different view.
