With a successful mixtape and a sold out international tour, Frank Ocean has been selected as GQ’s Rookie of the Year. The 24-year-old filmed a mini-interview with GQ’s Amos Barshad and talked everything from his hobbies, to why the color orange is favorite color, to what he has learned musically and non-musically from Kanye West and Jay-Z:
“The one non-musical thing that I learned from working with Kanye is that you should always choose your sneakers wisely.” [...] “Musical thing that I learned from Jay-Z, ‘Less takes is sometimes more.’”
See what else the singer-songwriter had to say after the jump!
